Your Mustang is built using rubber bushings in control arms, motor mounts, transmission mounts, sway bars, spring isolaters, and struts. Rubber bushings are soft and pliable. They offer superior insulation from noise and harshness, but they cost you in performance and durability. Urethane is a harder, more durable substance. When used in suspension components and drivetrain mounts, they provide increased performance due to the lack of deflection as well as increased durability and resistance to contaminating fluids such as oil and transmission fluid. Prothane is dedicated to producing the highest quality urethane components on the market today. All of Prothane's products carry a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
Prothane Total Kits Include:
-Outer Tie Rod End Boots
-Front Anti-Sway Bar End Link Set
-Upper Strut Mount Bushings
-Transmission Crossmember Bushings
-Rear Spring Isolators
-Front Spring Isolators
-Front Control Arm Bushings
-Rear Upper & Lower Control Arm Bushings
-Upper Rear Axle Bushings
-Non-Offset Steering Rack Bushings
This kit includes rear control arm bushings for round lower front bushing, oval lower front bushing, & SVO.
Due to the various sway bar sizes available, sway bar mount bushings are sold seperately
The suspension bushings included with this part can only be lubricated with PTFE grease, also referred to as "Marine Grease". PTFE grease is a very sticky, opaque grease that is water proof and will not degrade the bushing material. If lubed properly at installation, these bushings will not need to be lubricated again. Use of any other grease on these bushings will cause the bushing to fail and any bushing warranty to be voided.
Lifted or lowered suspensions, increases in horsepower, plus-size wheels and tires can subject traditional rubber suspension bushings to forces beyond their limits. Control arms, strut arms, leaf springs, body mounts, motor mounts, transmission mounts, sway bars and shocks all control movement and maintain alignment but the rubber bushings they use are designed for more "middle of the road" use. Rubber also deteriorates over time, further reducing control. This contributes to premature component failure, a "spongy" ride and less than ideal performance handling. Urethane bushings can correct these conditions, and improve drivability in your Mustang or Ford Lightning.
