Rear Subframe Connectors

From what I've read so far you can't purchase these anymore. Not good...

I also read that Johnny Langton was fabricating these...any news on that?

Mine look really bad, and I'm afraid that with the new suspension setup (Eibach/Tokico) they will see even more stress and possibly break.

Can I take these from a junkyard car if they still look good?

Can I replace the bushings above them, and with what?

Thanks,

You are talking about the braces that come forward from the subframe right? I believe you can still buy these new from Ford. If you found some less rusty ones than yours in a junkyard you could use them, yeah. No one makes aftermarket ones of those thing. JL's subfram connectors attach to those pieces and go farther forward yet. No one makes any kind of solid or poly bushing to take the place of stock bushings, you can only replace the bushings with stockers or fab something up yourself.
