Wanna save money on Poly Rear Suspension Bushings?

Everyone likes to save money right!


Polyurethane Springs Isolators desinged for a 99-04 cobra (just the lowers) are the same as the Tbirds. Prothane recently just started selling the lowers seperate and Laurel Mountain Mustangs has the for $15.95 a pair! thats $31.90 for a full set! Much better then $60 advertised other places.

Laurel Mountain also carriers the Diff Bushings for $37.95! and this is the Polyurethane Stackable type (Using Washers) so pinion angle can be adjusted if need be.

Lastly, I'm ordering a set of 03/04 Cobra Rear control Arm bushings for $63.95 from the looks of it it will be a Polyurethane replacement for the Thunderbird/MarkVIII control arms. As of now nobody makes a polyurethane replacement for these so I'm gonna order them and trial fit em.

Here's the LINK:

Hope this helps someone out!

They sell poly bushing kits for the kit cobras that use T-bird IRS setups.

A quick clarification...

The bushings that Rich offers at MN12 are rear spindle (knuckle) bushings. The Prothane Cobra kit from Laurel Mustang (#6-311BL) is for the upper/lower control arms to frame... different bushings.


That is all...

Experience is simply knowing what not to do... and knowing what won't work.
