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
Got this package as a " better to have more " than not enough for the weekend. Since I bought new tubular a-arms at the same time, many of the bushings I did not use. You would almost be better to buy individual pcs needed. ( note: H R racing spring, caster plates, KYB and Toyo R88's installed ) These bushing sure made the ride confident at 130 mph. No more wiggling in the back, the car went where I pointed. Never would I get that fast in the old set up. The car never felt planted, till the upgrades and bushings.
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.
Testimonial: Late model helped build two of my mustangs
I have had a bunch of different mustangs in the past and always was hard to get parts till a friend told me about Late model restoration when I had my 1993 cobra and I found everything I needed to finish that car and am now working on my 1986 gt and am finding everything I need . I had a transmission mount delivered to me without the mounting bolts and they more than made up the difference for the missing bolts ! Out of all the parts I have ordered one mistake ever was very well taken care of . I definitely will plan on finishing my 86 gt with the help of Late model restoration ! Thanks !
