Product Description

As rubber bushings wear out over time, replace your front control arm bushings with Prothane urethane bushings for better handling and better performance. Molded in black.

Includes metal Shells

Fits all 79-93 models except 79-82 with heavy duty suspension option. Does not fit 84-86 SVO.


Bushing Lubrication 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.

5 Stars   Great fit
By on 4/4/2015
Pressed right in but the bushings tend to want to walk out of the sleeve once pressed in Next time I will immediately install the control arm after pressing in the bushing to avoid the bushing sliding out of the sleeves. But all in all a great fit.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

5 Stars   No More Steering Wheel Shimmy!!!
By on 3/25/2016
Pros
I battled for 2 years with steering wheel shimmy. I did everything; new tires, new wheels, hub centric bushings, termi rack, solid steering shaft, solid rack bushings, bump steer kit etc....finally i decided to change out the control arm bushings. shimmy is GONE. I wasn't able to truly benefit from the steering mods until now. On center feel is no longer numb.

Cons
1. Absolute PITA to install. The stock control arms are flimsy so i had to weld supports on the open ends to keep the arm from collapsing as i pressed the bushings in and out. The standard BJ press kit at the local store doesn't have the dies that fit, so i ended up using a combination of sockets etc...
2. The center sleeve isn't serrated like the existing bushings, this might cause problems in the future with the nut backing off-we'll see.
3. You will get a noticeable amount of road noise inside the car, but its not bad considering the benefits.

My suggestion
BUY SHELL-LESS BUSHINGS! Doing this would've saved me a days work. Simply Torch (or drill) the existing bushings out of their shells and push the poly bushings in.

5 Stars   Great fit and feel

My fronted on my 88' Vert was very sloppy and tracking poorly. I pulled out the old ones and pressed in the new ones. No squeeks and the car is tracking well and handling great. Thanks for the fast delivery and free shipping!

A must-have when upgrading your suspension. Keep in mind that these will have to be pressed into place by a Machine shop

About This Brand


Prothane
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.
