Transmission crossmember w/ new mount & bushings

I believe this is an early model Tbird crossmember (wouldn't work on my 97). It looks to have brand new bushings & solid rubber mount.

$50 Shipped within the USA

Yeah, that appears to be a 89-93 AOD setup.

Hmmm....I thought the early model crossmembers used "square" bushings at the end and only the late model 5 speed version used round bushings. But looking at your picture Jason I do see differences between what you have and what I have as a late model crossmember.

It's been a long time and I'm cleaning out old parts, but if memory serves me correctly, I think I pulled that crossmember from a 92 AOD car. Now that you mention the square bushings though... those bushings may not even go with the crossmember I found the bushings in a box-o-parts and assumed they went with the trans, but I do remember them being square on the old cars.

Jason,

If those bushings are rubber I would be interested in them since I am working with a 95 5 speed car now. If poly....not interested though.

I'm pretty sure they are poly. THey are real hard, they almost feel like hard plastic.

The replacement poly bushings are all round, regardless of the original shape. My '89 Cougar had the 2 piece square bushings, that I replaced them with the poly bushings that are round. Bill from SCP assured me they were correct, and they seem to work fine other than needing different mounting bolts as the original shank is too large to go through the replacement sleeves.

I don't think that Ford ever serviced the crossmember bushings individually.....had to buy the entire member to get new bushings. The only aftermarkets I have seen were "developed" by MN12 Performance and were poly. SCP and Spinning Wheels picked up several of the lines Rich "developed" at MN12 Performance.
