High Performance Bushing Kit for '57 T-Bird

I've been searching the internet, as well as catalogs pretty thouroughly trying to find a full suspension bushing set for a 1957 T-Bird. I've found a few pieces here and there, but they've all been standard rubber, whereas I'm looking for the polyuerthane, neoprene, or comparable. If anyone has any leads for a full front end, as well as rear end kit, I'd be greatly appreciative if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks!

I have not come across any dedicated polyurethane bushings for anything beyond 1961. About all you can do is sway bar bushings and end kits as they are mostly universal. Maybe leaf spring eye bushings from a later model if you find a size chart.

I don't know if you want to change the origionality of the car but rack and pinion and even a P/S box is now available to upgrade from the old steering system.

Well, regardless, if polyurethane is unavailable, even a full setup would be great. I'm having trouble finding even the stock rubber ones! If you could help me that, I'd love it.

-Here- is one source.

You may be still be able to source most of this from MOOG which would give you a better quality.

Send all the parts to a polymer machine shop and have them cast them. It's not really a big deal for them. That way, you can choose not only the material, but how stiff or soft the suspension will be.
