Strut rod bushings are a must. Get the OE ones, don't buy the moog's. Might want to replace the inner and outer tie rods as well. Especially if it has alot of miles on it and you plan to keep it. I see alot of wheel bearing problems too. Rebuilding the entire front end is quite a project.

The uca's and lca's I suggest the trw's they are fine. The strut rod bushings insist on motorcraft. Go talk to Jason about them they are about the same price as the moog's and last alot longer.

How about TRW strut rod bushings?? I used these and now I have some regret after reading this. Does anyone have a pic of the two (ford and moog/trw) side by side so I can see what you are talking about??

My LCA's came with trw strut rod bushings, If you want to try them I'll sell them to you cheap I am putting in ford ones. The ford ones are bonded rubber to a steel sleeve. The aftermarket ones are a sleeve that slides into 2 rubber bushings.

So the Ford ones have an all one piece with a sleeve?? Hmm, I can see where that would make them better. If I had not already done it with the TRW's, I would have done Ford. The Ford ones will have to be pressed in right??

The ford ones are 2 piece with the rubber bonded to 2 sleeves. The aftermarket ones are technically 3 piece and none of them have to be pressed on.
