The Installment about Front Suspension Bushings

Rubber is great for noise insulation, but with time it deteriorates and becomes too flexible. This article attempts to help give you information on how to install new front bushing for your Mustang.

†Summary:

Rubber is great for noise insulation, but with time it deteriorates and becomes too flexible. This article attempts to help give you information on how to install new front bushing for your Mustang.

Installation:

We bought a set of†PROTHANE†urethane bushings from†Maximum Motorsports.

Installation is simple, raise the front, disconnect the steering column from the rack (1 bolt), remove the rack bolts, pull the rack forward, remove the rubber bushings and install the new ones.

A mallet is needed to set the new bushings in place, first intall the REAR bushings and put the rack in place, then install the front bushings. Some lubrication might be needed to make them slide. Use some WD40, but DONT grease them with the supplied grease, you dont want those bushings to move.

Tighten the bolts and you are set, reinstall the steering column and dont forget to tighten it.

FRONT LOWER ARM BUSHINGS

Installing stiffer lower arm bushings will keep you alignment in range on those twisties, making the steering respond better and faster to steering input.

Here the same guidelines apply as with the steering bushings, solid ones for Road Race only and urethane for street.

Here you want those bushings to be greased or else they will tend to squeek. We also got†PROTHANE†urethane bushings from†Maximum Motorsports.

Installation:

You will have to raise and remove the front wheels, struts, coil springs struts and lower arms.

Remove the control arm bushings and then get the rubber bushings out of their shell, which you will have to reuse with the new bushings.

In order to remove them you will need a bench press or a propane torch!! Yes, the torch you will use to heat and sometimes melt the rubber bushing to get it out of the shell. This process could take some time, so be patient.

This is what we did, we drilled a few holes between the sell and bushing, then we heated the shell a bit and used the press to get the rubber out. Took about 30 minutes for the whole set.

One thing to do to the new bushings is install a zerk grease fitting in them to provide an easy way to grease them if noise gets anoying. Place the bushings in their shells and drill a hole in each, big enough to screw in a zerk grease fitting.

Installation is easy but the whole process takes time as you have to remove most of the front suspension components.

THE VEREDICT

The improvement over stock is very noticeable, the rubber allows all the components to move making the suspension flex all around. We had a bit of bumpsteer before and now it is completely gonne.

Steering is now predictable and quite responsive.

The front Mustang suspension uses rubber bushings everywhere; control arms, steering rack, swaybarComputer Technology Articles, endlinks. And just after a few years the ride will deteriorate.
