Dear Welder Series… 52″ track width Mustang II?

Dear Welder Series…
I am interested in replacing the MGB front suspension in my Cobra replica. I am planning to buy your unwelded coilover cross member and cut it down to make the pivot points of the lower a-arm match the pivot points of a MGB steering rack and fabricate rack mounting brackets for it. I need to make the hub to hub width about 52″. I plan to use some Bilstien coilovers left over from Lotus Elise project with 371 pounds per inch springs. These are not the adjustable type, so I may have to drill extra holes to get the ride height right.

I drive my car in rallies and Solos 2 events VERY hard. I need to lose some weight, improve geometry and gain bigger brakes (I plan to get Wilwoods). Please check out this picture of my car: So any advice you can give me will be very much appreciated.

Thank you,

Dear Paul…
Good looking Cobra, Paul.  (Does it have a heater?)

The 52″ track width can be done, as outlined on our website at .

I’m not clear about your MGB parts use.  If you plan to use all of the MGB parts on our crossmember, there will be some fab work required.  It looks like you are ok with that.

I hope this reply helps with your plans.
