Does anyone here know if the front control arm bushings from a 88 TC are the same as the mustang GT bushings? If not what should I use?
Thanks

I think we covered this over on the turboford board. They actually are different. I think I listed the Energy Susp parts numbers over there.

I called Them yesterday. They told me they are different, but PST told me they work. So I was just asking to see if anyone here might have actually done this. Hmm maybe I could sell the GT bushings.
Thanks guys
