  • Recommended when installing the MM Panhard Bar.

  • 7.5" and 8.8" Mustang rear axle housings

Note
See the tool in action in the video below.

  • Erase poor performance due to old, deteriorating bushings!
  • For improved axle control, the rubber bushings are the higher durometer (stiffer) bushings used in the FRPP control arms and the later Fox through SN95 standard production control arms. Early original Fox chassis upper control arms had softer rubber bushings.
  • Rubber bushings accommodate the motion of the Mustang 4-link geometry, allowing more suspension movement with less binding than urethane upper arm bushings.
  • Recommended when installing the MM Panhard Bar.
  • Reproduction of the no-longer-available M-5500-A Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) control arms
  • Rubber bushings pre-installed at the chassis end
  • Plated for corrosion resistance

Fits:

  • 1979-2004 solid axle-equipped Mustang
  • Fox chassis Fairmont, Zephyr, LTD and Marquis
  • 7.5" and 8.8" Mustang rear axle housings

Does NOTfit:

  • 1980-1988 Thunderbird and Cougar or 1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII, because these models have longer rear upper and lower control arms than Fox/SN95 Mustangs.
