ACDelco == Raybestos, from what I've read; Delco bought Raybestos stuff, or something.

ACDelco=Raybestos=Allied Signal. but IDK for sure.

All this talk convinced me to buy these to replace when I tear out the rear end. I bought mine from Bill at SuperCoupePerformance since he seems to know to make sure that we get the right thing and his price is as good as anyone else.

My intent was to buy everything I needed from Bill, sadly I use my PayPal credit to finance my car upgrades/repairs and he only takes Credit Cards.

I do have a few things in my wish list that I will purchase from him once I have my "necessities" taken care of, and now that I know he doesn't do PayPal, I will set money aside from my bank account.

Thanks for the clarification.
I'm glad I read this thread awhile ago when I first found out what I needed to replace, nearly bought the "bad" Moog units.

Everything else showed up today.

The AC-Delco rear upper control arm to frame bushings (with adjustment)
Energy Suspension knuckle bushings
Motorcraft inner and outer tie rod ends
Energy Suspension Tie Rod End covers (that it looks like I didn't need because the Motorcraft came with them)
Timkin front wheel bearing/hub assemblies


So over the next weekend or two, I'll be busy!

And FYI, the OEM Motorcraft Hub/Spindle retaining nuts are still available from Ford. Picked up a set from the dealer yesterday for $24 each.

When pushing the upper control arm to frame bushing, you need the "large" bushing puller kit to get it out.

I got the "car" kit and it doesn't fit around the race for the bushing.
