    Sorry, I don't know the answer, just decided to use what I had as I felt that the lightest car they could have come from was an e-type and that's still much heavier than the rear end of a Cobra.

    Mine are shouldered, I made sleeves, there is no weight on the back of these cars so sleeving them would be fine, the car ran for years with no problem using them anyway.

    The P700 is NOT asymmetric and therefore only dips up and down, it does not dip to the left. It is also not period correct for a Cobra. I would say that this is almost certain to cause dazzling to...

    As far as I know, yes you simply replace the stub axle and everything else apart from the bearings and possibly the castellated nut if they are different stays the same.
