Changing front bushings: how to?

ok well me and some racing buddies have come to the conclusion that i need to change my front control arm bushings on the stang. i have 2 1/2 degrees of negitive camber and i still roll on to the outside of the tire. like this

so anyway i want to use the MM bushing kit, so my question is how hard are these to change, what is the procedure to do this? thanks for all yalls help in advance

Re: Changing front bushings: how to?

not really that hard. you just have to remove the control arms and press the old bushings out and press the new ones on. and by press I mean beat them with a hammer.

now If you need directions on how to remove the control arms just let me know. also you will need to realign the car after this.

If you are going to do it, i would recommend getting 03/04 cobra A Arms as they are setup differently and handle better. I would go Delrin only NOT URATHANE

I don't think getting to the bushings is all to hard. But to replace them, well vice clamps and C-clamps may be your friend as well as a little enginuity.

The reason for delrin over urethane is urethane will wear out like rubber will. Delrin are harder and will last longer than urethane.
