    Richard,
    Unless someone can prove otherwise, 93 cobras did not come with steel bearing retainers. (or at least mine did not)

    This has been a hot debate lately. According to my sources only the T5Z came with that part.:beer:

    I may have missed it in the first few post but what is the weight difference between the 93 gt and 93 cobra (not r)? I checked on the autotrader website (not very reliable I know) and the gt weighed in the 2600-2700 range but the cobra is listed as 3200 lbs here so I don't see how their could be such a discrepency in weight.

    I have had the transmissions out of 2 of my 93 Cobras and my 93R and all 3 of them had a steel bearing retainer.

    I know for sure the trans had never been out of one of the Cobras and the 93R.

    for the guy that asked about tags...

    all the fenders and doors and panels(rocker panels and bumper covers if i am not mistaken) did have vin tags on them....they were not removeable so if they arent there....those items have been replaced

    I dont know if anyone mention the larger front calipers. I would look up the specs, but I feel like shit due to food posioning

    There were no larger front calipers - same calipers as standard 5.0's.

    Really. I thought they where the 73mm calipers. I installed hawk pads on my 93. They told me that they where listed as 2 seperate numbers.

    no the 73's came on SVO's and certain Lincoln's (can't remember which ones) Cobras came with the same caliper as a regular 87-93 5.0

    Damn and all this time I thought I had 73mm calipers. Learn something new everyday. Ford should have put them on. I guess keeping cost down was there goal like no tilt or cruise control. Oh well, just another reason to buy parts.

    there really isn't any advantage to the 73mm calipers
