Post mustang II ifs bushings????

My son and I have purchased a 1976 ifs off a mustang II and we need to replace the bushings.We are planning on purchasing a kit crossmember but I figure we may as well get the small stuff out of the way. Does anyone know all of the bushings we will need( ie:upper control arm and so on) and where we can find them at a reasonable price. I have seen some of the heist bushings in cool colors but, I can't find where to purchase even the black one's.
Thanks-Mario and Tyler

Mario & Tyler:

I may not be much help, but here goes!

As far as which bushings to replace... ALL OF 'EM. Remember, your talking about a front end set up that's 26 years old. Want to know which bushings are which? Cruise by your library and hunt down a shop manual for the 76 Mustangs, photocopy the page and voila!

Now, where to buy... check your local Napa and CarQuest parts stores if you have any there. I've also got a 72 Mustang and you'd be surprised what these folks have in stock or can get from a warehouse overnight at a VERY REASONABLE PRICE. If you just can't find anything, check with some of the Mustang rebuild magazines like California Mustang or Mustangs Unlimited and ask for a catalog.

Surprisingly, even though you can't find much in the way of body/restoration parts for the "Mini-Mustangs" you can find suspension parts because so many of them were scavenged by the Street Rodding fanatics. That also gives way to checking with some of the street rod companies who sell the Mustang II "mock" front ends/suspensions. Pick up a street rod magazine the next time you're at the supermarket and see what's available... you might even see the colored ones you were talking about.

fatherandson53; Don't overlook the stock MII x-member. It is actually fairly easy to cut out of the donor car and graft into your stock frame. Also, I contend it is stronger than the aftermarket units (see recent post on this board with pictures of Heidt's unit that failed from fatigue fractures). I have a couple of tech articles I can send you on this installation if you are interested. Just send me your e-mail address.
