Moog rear lower control arm bushings

I boxed my rear lower control arms and welded in ride height adjusters . And none of my local parts store show the lower bushings at all. I was hoping somebody could throw me some moog part numbers or anything they could cross-reference . Thanks

Upper and lower rear - 1989 - MUSTANG - FORD - Control Arm Bushings and Bearings - Bushings & Mounts - Chassis & Suspension - SummitRacing.com see if that works, should bring up everything on summit with upper/lower rear bushings.

Re: Moog rear lower control arm bushings

I would replace the entire lower control arm, leave the uppers (as with stiff bushings they can create bind issues when flexing side to side vs a full squat of the rear)

replace the uppers with OEM if worn though

I would go Delrin vs Poly for bushing material~ check with maximum motorsports, if you are only interested in traction in a straight line lift bars can do great things but at the price of handling

I know new would work . But I boxed the lowers and welded in ride height adjusters . To give it some personal flair. I was shooting for kind of an old school touch. I was just hoping somebody else ran into the issue of no local parts store showing the bushings. And didn't know if any other bushings would work. Thanks

Like possibly the fronts fitting or a bushing off a different year or car.
