The first thing you need to do since you want to stay with a 4 lug setup is to upgrade to 87-93 5.0 spindles, master cylinder, and brake booster.....
This earlier suggestion is still a good idea. The original 10" front disc brakes are barely adequate, but going to 87-93 5.0L stock front brakes will be a big improvement for you. It won't stop like your Cobra, but it will certainly stop better than stock.

She's up on jack stands in the garage as I continue to rebuild the underside. The rear suspension is done. I have installed control arms and rear sway bar from a 2004 with all rubber replaced with polyurethane. I also replaced the shocks and springs.
The front suspension is completely off the car. I have poly bushings for the front along with new struts and springs, and new i/o tie rods and bellows for the rack. I'm replacing the rotors and pads while I'm at it.
I did change the MC. I removed the pistons from the old one and they looked horrible. I suspect that the brakes will perform much better now.
I hope the have the front end back together in the next 10 days and test everything. I planned to put the front sway bar from a 2004 on it, but that will not work. The stock one will remain and is enough for what it is, anyway.
After 29 years, it's amazing how frozen the bolts were, lol.
