CROSSMEMBER, TUBULAR STYLE, STIFFLERS, BLACK INDUSTRIAL GRADE POWDER COAT, INCL MOUNTING HARDWARE, DESIGNED TO ALLOW MORE EXHAUST CLEARANCE
For T-56 (All), *Cobra Spec T-45 & **TH-400 Transmissions
This crossmember is specifically designed to be used with the 96-98 Cobra "bolt-on" style crossmember mounts when reinstalling the factory Cobra Spec T-45 or upgrading to any T-56 or TH-400 transmission. The crossmember is engineered to work with OEM and aftermarket transmission mounts; all while maintaining your current pinion angle. Low deflection polyurethane bushings are used in the mounts to dampen driveline vibrations and noise.
For racing applications the polyurethane bushings can be replaced by optional solid bushings.
About Cobra Crossmember Mounts
The 96-98 Cobra was equipped from the factory with a 4?ǥ longer T-45 (know as the ?ǣCobra Spec T-45?ǥ) measuring 28.5?ǥ from the bell housing face to the transmission mount holes. Because this extra length positioned the transmission mount well behind the OEM crossmember the factory mounting bracket location could not be used. As a solution all 96-98 Cobras were assembled with bolt-on crossmember brackets that were positioned further to the rear of the car and bolted to the subframe.
