I might be able to help you out but can you be a little more specific about what you are wanting? Are you talking the total outside diameter of the hub, or the center part of it where the rotor fits around or what?
T-Birds and Cobra's have the same outside diameter hub which is about 5.480"
The center portion of the Cobra rear hub is the same size as the center of your stock FRONT thunderbird hub which is about 2.75" at the base of the hub and has a slight taper to is as it extends outward.
The center of the rear t-bird hub is smaller than the Cobra. I just did the hub swap on my car and used my stock rear brakes. I redrilled my rear rotors for the mustang bolt pattern and had to machine the centers of my rear rotors to fit over the center of the cobra hubs.

Continuing with my tranny saga, I got the original J-Mod valve body back in, car shifts fine when cold, but once it warms up, 1 to 2 is sluggish. I could not figure this out so I took the Cougar into a reputable tranny house and had them look it over, run diags, etc. They could not...
