Tubular LCA's..are these real???

It's not what's getting sold but if you look at the other picture you'll see them.. They look too dinky to be functional. They're probably mock up's..

The MN12/FN10 Independent rear suspension is real popular with the folks building Coba Replicas. That is what is pictured in the Ebay Ad.

And has been stated, the brackets being sold in the ad are for adapting the larger Cobra rear rotors to the MN12.

Be grateful for this market. It has provided us with some parts that otherwise wouldn't be built.

I know about the bracket.. What I was pointing out was the Tubular Lower Control Arms in the 2nd picture not the bracket. That's why I said "It's not whats getting sold". Are those Lower Control Arms an aftermarket production piece or just a mock up? I was intreaged by them.

The tubular a arms is what I was referring to. I don't know if they'll fit an MN12 or not. You might do a search among the Kit Cobra websites and forums and be able to find out however.

I wonder if they have the same dimensions of ours. and if so.. I wonder how much they cost. I bet if one beefed them up with gussets and such they'd be alright. Of course something would have to be done about a spring pocket.

Different length....that is why they designed a new upper/lower control arm setup and swaybar setup, iirc.

you don't want to hear this but some bagged trucks run a thjunderbird rear end in their trucks and there is a comany that makes lowers like that for a thunderbirds rear suspension. although i can't say if they are a direct replacement. they do a lot of narrowing on these trucks. I am locked out of the site with pics while here at work but can post a pic of them later if you want to see them.
