(2) Completely Reconditioned Rear Knuckles/Hubs W/New Bearings

I've got (2) completely reconditioned rear knuckle/hub assembles, complete with brand-new Timken wheel bearings; Timken bearing retaining rings; new poly bushings where the knuckle connects to both the upper and lower control arms, and all brand-new Dorman wheel studs.

I purchased two used knuckles/hubs; two brand-new Timken wheel bearings; two brand-new Timken wheel bearing retainer rings, and ten brand-new Dorman wheel studs. I then sent all the parts to a guy named Stuart Spencer, of the Factory Five Racing crowd (some of you folks who have been active for a long time on this forum probably know of him). He cleaned the knuckles up; pressed out the hub and old wheel bearings, then pressed in the new wheel bearings & the original hubs (with the new wheel studs), and installed new poly bushings (I think they're Energy Suspension bushings, or equivalent; I don't remember) in the positions where the knuckles attach to the upper and lower control arms.

These pictures do not do these parts justice - I swear that I literally thought, when I first opened the box after Mr Spencer had sent them back to me, that he had gone down to his local Ford and purchased two brand-new knuckles for me (he assures me, however, that those are the same knuckles that I had sent him)! They look THAT good!

Anyway, when you add up the cost of all the parts; the shipping, and what I paid Mr Spencer for his services, I have well over $200 invested in these knuckles. I'd be willing to sell them for $150, shipped.

If you're interested in buying them, you can just make a PayPal payment to my PayPal ID - [email protected]. then, just shoot me a PM, letting me know you've paid for them, and confirming your shipping address.

I bought these to use on my 1997 Thunderbird, but I'm pretty sure they work/will fit in any 1989 - 1997 Thunderbird/Cougar. They are from a donor vehicle that had rear disc brakes, too.

Thank you,

Dennis

I know this is stupid to ask, but this wouldn't happen to be 5x4.5, would it?

No, that's not a stupid question to ask at all, and I should have specified that these hubs are still in the MN12 Thunderbird/Cougar bolt pattern.

I had seriously considered changing over to the Mustang bolt pattern, as I've always been a huge fan of the Bullitt wheels, but I decided against that due to the added cost of new wheels and tires.

I finally got my Bullitt wheels, though - the 2002 Mustang GT I just bought has them! :-)

What's the purpose of the extra set of holes? Are they drilled for both?

The're downright beautiful, that's for sure.

You know, I just noticed those extra holes now, when I read your post. This picture must be the one I originally saved from Stuart Spencer's website, and those particular hubs are re-drilled in the Mustang's bolt pattern.

This picture was on my phone. I think I have a picture of my actual knuckles/hubs, and I'll try to find it in the morning. But, they look identical to these, just without the extra holes!

Yes, I still have my Thunderbird. Until I sell it, that is.
