Product Description

1996-1998 SN95 Stiffler's Transmission Crossmember
This unique single tube crossmember design for 1996 to 1998 Mustang Cobra "bolt-on" style crossmember mounts when reinstalling the factory Cobra Spec T-45 or upgrading to any T-56 or TH400 transmission. It adds stiffness and strength far beyond that of the OEM versions while offering versatility like no other. Simply slide the mounting sleeves and reposition the spacers to cover all T56's, Cobra Spec T45, & TH400 applications. 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.

Cobra Crossmember Mounts
The 1996-1998 Cobra was equipped from the factory with a 4” longer T-45 (know as the “Cobra Spec T-45”) measuring 28.5” 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 1996-1998 Cobras were assembled with bolt-on crossmember brackets that were positioned further to the rear of the car and bolted to the subframe.

Cobra Spec T-45 measures 28.5” from bell housing face to transmission mount holes. TH-400 installs with GM style transmission mount and Stifflers mount adapter

5 Stars   Fits Perfect
By on 10/5/2015
Upgraded my 97 Cobra from a stock T-45 5 speed to a T-56 6 speed. Because, there is no specific transmission cross member made for my car. This was perfect. Instructions were spot on. Was impressed they provided pictures of how everything mounts in place. Best of all, no welding needed.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

5 Stars   Perfect fit
By on 9/16/2015
Cross member fit perfectly, really cleans up the transmission area versus the original mount. Installed with the Stifflers drive shaft loop and urethane transmission mount. The instructions said to used one spacer with the urethane mount, for some reason I didn't have room for the spacer, everything seems ok without it. This cross member, with the drive shaft loop looks very nice under the car. Really a nice upgrade, worth the money. If you are running any power adders I would definitely recommend.
