Manual steering does not have any of that. In fact, neither does power steering. Those parts are usually on 4wd or off road trucks. If you can say why you think you need them, maybe we can come up with the right terminology.

Thats for power steering and you said you have manual. Sooo if i were you id crawl under your car with a long screw driver and start prying on things to see if you have ant bad bushings. Now just because your mechanic said you needed it doesnt mean its true

Mechanic could still be referring to a steering stabilizer like on a Jeep. I don't know if they make them to fit a Mustang. I agree with Travis its not needed if it's in good shape.

Thanks. That's exactly what it is. At high speeds the manual steering does not feel safe, trying to sure it up. Any other suggestions?

Entire front end rebuild kits with tie rod ends, ball joints and control arm bushings aren't too expensive, but labor will drive the price up. Make sure your tires are balanced first. If the front end just feels loose and you have to constantly correct, get the steering gear box checked.
