Just buy new a arms. They will have new bushings, new balljoints and it will be much easier.

If you still want to just do the bushings... Check out Rockauto or see if MM has any poly bushings that go in stock A arms. For balljoints get Steeda X2 units if you are doing them separately. You will need an alignment.

If you can still find a set, 03/04 Cobra a arms are the best oem ones.

You're going to have to pay a shop to press the new balljoints in if you don't have a press. I seriously doubt between bushings and balljoints and the labor and having to do the bushings yourself it'll be any easier than just getting a refurb'd set like this.

Lower Control Arm Bushings are a B**** to change. I did it on my 04. You have to use an Air Hammer to get them out & a Ball Joint Press to get them back in. Took the whole day to do it.
You're much better off if you change out the whole control arm. Just a heads up on what you're getting into.

Rockauto also has the Moog units for $78 each.


More Information for MOOG RK620900


More Information for MOOG RK620899


You have to pay shipping but with 5% off using the code in the general forum (just google "rockauto discount mustangevolution") it is probably still going to be cheaper even with $25-$30 shipping.


Moog is a really good brand in case you are not aware.


That said, the LRS ones would be fine too if you already got them.
