DLF Rear Subframe Bushing Kits - Available again!

It's come to my attention that Jay (98Mark8LSC) bought the tooling and plans from DLF's widow, and is making most of DLF's old parts.

See this thread for more information about Jay.

He apparently also sells the parts at SCCoA and on the Facebook groups.

If anyone could provide me links to those selling sources I'll link them here. Thanks.

See this thread for information about the great parts that DLF developed for the FN10 and MN12.

Thanks Trunk Monkey! I haven't listed anything on SCCOA yet, just the Facebook groups (TCCoA and SCCoA).

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask me.

I'm currently making parts on an as-needed basis, since I just moved to a new house recently AND have a new baby on the way. Have a lot of stuff going on, and not a lot of time to build up any inventory right now, but I'll certainly do my best to take care of any needs that anyone may have.

Thanks!

Jay,

Will you make the steering joint kit which replaces the rag joint? If so, I'd like to get one.

Hi Mike,

I sure do. With my current inventory, my schedule the way it is, and my wife about to have our second child any day now, I'd have to ask for about 2 weeks from the time of payment until I could get it to you though.

The steering kit is $150 shipped.

I got my delrin rear LCA for my Mark VIII stuff from Jay, and it's everything it's cracked up to be. Definitely worth it.

Yeah, sorry about the huge picture. I uploaded it from my phone. Not sure why it's so big.

Replied to your email.

oh ok cool. Most modern phones take 8+MP pictures, so they have a large size by default. Just need to download Photoeditor app, or similar, and just resize it to a 800x600, then upload to your favorite photoshareing site.

I just completed a set of subframe bushings for MaddMartigan. Thought I'd share a picture, since there aren't any on this thread.

Nice..

What is the cost of the Subframe Bushing Kit?

I don't know if it has been posted somewhere, but a complete list of the parts you make and the cost would be a helpful addition to this thread..

The subframe bushing kits are $325 shipped. The same price that Doug sold them for.

I'll work on a complete list, but basically, all of my prices meet or beat Doug's prices.

Dont mind rayo's request, those who truly need this stuff will contact you regardless of what it costs.

Besides, right now the important thing is for you to work on machining the repairs for my speaker parts!

Thanks..

I wasn't aware of all the parts that Doug made..So a list would be helpful..

I don't think he documented all the parts he made anywhere either..

Yes sir, I am. $135 shipped.

I'm not at home right now, so I don't have a picture to upload at the moment.


Rayo--

Sorry I've forgotten to come back with a complete list. I'll try and do that later tonight.

Based on what I've seen at the Ford online parts sites, these are actually cheaper than the OEM part which is pretty much impossible to get. The OEM part is around $90 each so that means $360 + shipping for OEM. The aluminum ones at SCP are $386 + shipping.

This is a good deal.

It will be a while before I get to putting mine on though. I'm still dealing with a back injury right now.

strut rod bushings?

Jay, ever get around to the full list of stuff you offer? Any way you can start turning out strut rod bushings? I know it was brought up to Doug 4+ years, but he turned it down because you could still get factory kits at the time. Think of the market for them...
