Product Overview

When replacing the front strut rod bushings, you will often find that your OEM inner steel sleeves have rusted together, leaving them unusable.  

To make the job easier we are offering strut rod sleeves machined out of billet stainless steel

OEM front washers - E9SZ-3A141-B - have been drilled out to accommodate the thicker stainless steel sleeve. 

The OEM Ford Bushings are no long available from Ford. We have source blueprinted after market supply of these bushings created to the same specs as the originals

to replace E9SZ-3B271-A and F7SZ-3A225-AA

Feedback from the less expensive blue or gray colored aftermarket bushings have not been great.  

This kit will replace the both the driver and passenger strut rod K member bushings and includes the following - 

2 - New Solid Stainless Steel Sleeves - Made in the USA

2 - Ford OEM Front Washers - E9SZ-3A141-B - Drilled with an one inch center hole to accommodate the upgraded sleeves

2 - New Blueprinted Replica Front Bushings  to replace E9SZ-3B271-A

2 - New Blueprinted Replica Rear Bushings  to replace F7SZ-3A225-AA

The OEM steel sleeves are no longer available from Ford, this set replaces the following part numbers:

    Everything needed in one shot

    When rebuilding the front suspension on my restomod project (1996 Cougar XR7 ) I wanted to make sure not to skimp out on bushings. This kit takes the guesswork and hunting down of genuine Ford bushings and sleeves away from the equation.
