Rear knuckles

What rear knuckles cross to a 1991 Cougar XR7 with 4 wheel discs? Any MN12? Any rear-disc MN12? Only those made by Murray on Tuesdays when he's wearing a red flannel shirt?

I'm needing to replace the knuckle bushings on the back of Sweetie's car, and it seems like a good idea to rebuild two spares and swap them in on a slow and easy weekend without all the cursing and what not to get a DD back up and on the road.

Found three donors at a U-Pull-It within 2 miles of the house.

Now I have a conundrum - they only want $150 for the whole rear subframe, including the one in the 1997 Mark VIII LSC ...

Methinks that's a steal, since it's complete with diff, upper and lower control arms, springs, and disc brakes.

To decide if I want to fight that out there and get it home and rebuild the arms and knuckles to swap into Sweetie's car, or just get the knuckles (at $25 each) ...

And they may not be in need of rebushing ... may be able to swap in, drive a year, then swap in old ones with new parts ... if needed.

How many miles on the Mark VIII ?

A fine pair ... ... and whatever you do, Have a Safe Trip!
