1996-1998 Mustang GT/Cobra

Out with the old and in with the new is the best way to describe this era of Mustang GT and Cobra. Previously, this machine was powered by the good ole’ fashion 5.0L pushrod engine. Mustang owners and muscle car enthusiasts got the first taste of the modular 4.6L during this generation of Mustang GT and Mustang Cobra. This head-cam motor was an instant hit amongst Mustang drivers, and a constant source of discussion and debate amongst car people all over the country. To accompany the new mod motor was a T-45 manual transmission, or the AOD-E automatic transmission.

This era also received a small design in the appearance; a mid-platform makeover common of Ford. The taillights were changed to the vintage three verticals bars – previously they were three horizontal bars. This change was reminiscent of the first generation Ford Mustang models. Although this was a very popular body style, enthusiasts complained that the changes to the GT were too subtle, and the body upgrades paled in comparison to the major power plant makeover.

The Cobra on the other hand, did look more aggressive in the mid-generation ear. It still looked very similar to the GT, but did have a couple tweaks to give it a more aggressive appearance. The Mustang Cobra got a sportier front bumper, and the rear bumper featured the word “COBRA” stamped into the design. It also got round fog lights, and side snake badges. In addition, the hood was raised for more intake clearance – contributing to the more aggressive look.
This is still a very popular vehicle, and because of that we have all the parts owners need to further improve the performance of this vehicle.

1996-1998 Mustang GT & Cobra

This was the first time the Mustang was powered by the 4.6L modular V8. The Mustang GT received a SOHC (Single Over Head Cam) 16-valve engine, rated at 215 horsepower. Cobra models got a 32-valve DOHC (Double/Dual Over Head Cam) that pumped out a 305 horsepower rating – which was very impressive for the time period. 1997 and 1998 Mustang GTs and Cobras were nearly identical to the 1996 model in both styling and power.

BMR Fabrication 1979-1998 Mustang Lower Control Arms w/poly bushings

BMR Fabrication 1979-1998 Mustang Lower Control Arms w/poly bushings

Stock control arms are marginal at best. Bushing deflection combined with control arm flex creates erratic handling and inconsistent rear end stability when subjected to the added loads of performance driving. BMR control arms are built using 1-5/8" x .120" DOM tubing and utilize 1/4" thick mounting plates for a bulletproof combination. Upper control arms are available in either fixed or adjustable versions. Adjustable uppers allow "on-car" adjustability by simply loosening the jamnuts and turning the adjuster. This allows you to adjust your pinion angle without unbolting the control arm, a convenience not offered by most other companies. These adjusters are by far the strongest in the industry. Made from 1-1/8" CNC machined steel and then zinc plated for corrosion resistance, they truly are overkill! Both upper and lowers are available with either polyurethane bushings or Teflon lined spherical bearings. With our variety of choices, we have control arms that are equally at home on the street, drag strip or road coarse. Available in Black Hammertone or red powdercoat.
