Default Use 2003 Cobra power steering rack on 2002 GT?

While rebuilding the rack on my son's 2002 GT, we discovered some power steering fluid in the bellows of the inner tie rod on the driver side. Since the K-member and engine are all out of the car, now would be the time to change the rack.

I have heard that the Cobra got a different rack- same ratio but better valving for better steering feel. I can't imagine that the K-members differ from model to model of V8 Mustang, since the blocks are identical. Does anyone know if we can use the Cobra rack on a GT?

For reference, here are the Rock Auto links to both racks:

Cobra AC Delco, $176.99

GT AC Delco, $150.79

it will definatly mount directly to the k frame as the frames are all the same, only difference i can imagine is maybe inner tie rod lengths or something with the lines. I highley doubt u will be able to notice the difference between the two racks steeting the vehicle I would just save the money and get the cheaper one.
