Ride: Ford Fairmont Ghia EL

Location: Maroochydore
QLD, Australia

Hey guys, I got an EL Fairmont Ghia - when I bought it someone had already taken the factory alloys off it and replaced them with some steel rims and caps with small standard wheel nuts.

Today I was trying to swap over some mag alloys from an EB Fairmont (donor car) to my EL and found that the wheel nuts from the EB were too long (or short) and when done up fully the wheels still had about a cm of play in them.

Probably did not put enough background in I know, but I just wondered if anyone knew the exact size wheel nut I will need to order for the EL so that the alloy mags fit on properly?

I am also thinking of swapping over the rotors and pads from the EB because they look like they have been changed recently and the ones on my EL are warped so bad I think its affecting fuel consumption.

both cars have ABS - do you think also think this would be a relatively straight swap?

any help would be super appreciated on this - cheers

front rotors will swap no worries, rears not a chance, you will need to use the el wheel nuts or buy new ones.
