The subframe bushing kits are $325 shipped. The same price that Doug sold them for.

I'll work on a complete list, but basically, all of my prices meet or beat Doug's prices. :)

Thanks.. :)

I wasn't aware of all the parts that Doug made..So a list would be helpful..

I don't think he documented all the parts he made anywhere either.. :zdunno:

Are you making the SRB sleeves. I'll be doing the bushings as part of a massive front suspension overhaul and want to be prepared. Thank you

Yes sir, I am. $135 shipped.

I'm not at home right now, so I don't have a picture to upload at the moment.


Rayo--

Sorry I've forgotten to come back with a complete list. I'll try and do that later tonight.

Dont mind rayo's request, those who truly need this stuff will contact you regardless of what it costs. :D

Besides, right now the important thing is for you to work on machining the repairs for my speaker parts! :)
Based on what I've seen at the Ford online parts sites, these are actually cheaper than the OEM part which is pretty much impossible to get. The OEM part is around $90 each so that means $360 + shipping for OEM. The aluminum ones at SCP are $386 + shipping.

This is a good deal.

It will be a while before I get to putting mine on though. I'm still dealing with a back injury right now.

strut rod bushings?

Jay, ever get around to the full list of stuff you offer? Any way you can start turning out strut rod bushings? I know it was brought up to Doug 4+ years, but he turned it down because you could still get factory kits at the time. Think of the market for them...

What are the OEM rear subframe bushings made of? Were they all rubber? How do these rear subframe bushings compare, particularly in ride harshness, and noise/vibration? Are they suitable for use in a daily driver?

I've got nearly 204,000 miles on my '97 T-Bird, and I've got about 85% of the parts I need for a complete rear suspension rebuild. I would imagine my rear subframe bushings are, at this point, about shot!

Thanks,

Dennis

^yep.

The UHMW rear subframe bushings will likely give you some increased NVH over the stock bushings, but most people have said that they haven't really noticed it. If you're replacing all of the other bushings with like-stock replacements, I'd guess that you wouldn't notice it at all.

Not to get off topic but are the front strut rod sleeves still available?
I'm sorry for not noticing this earlier. Yes they are. I just sent out 2 different sets of them last week. :D

Here's a couple more pictures. I've beefed them up a little bit compared to the way DLF used to make them. As you can see in the last picture, these are TIG welded 360 degrees. Still 100% stainless steel. :D

Nice welds. :thumbsup:

I know what it is. The fact that they are on the inside circumference makes it easy for argon to linger around and protect them from the atmosphere as the heat dissipates so they don't oxidize as readily as an outside joint. Nice welds indeed.
