WHY   DO   I   NEED   THESE   BUSHINGS  ???

65-66 Mustangs with V-8 and POWER STEERING have a unique driver side outer tie rod.  When installing disc brakes from  Granada, Maverick,
Versailles, or 70-73 Mustang or Cougar on a 65-66 Mustang with power steering, a later model tie rod can not be substituted for the unique driver side
unit.  One company offers a customized tie rod for $90.00.  I'm sure that is a fair price for a custom made piece, BUT, with one of these $20.00
bushings you can save $70.00 !!!

Six cylinder Mustangs have a very small outer tie rod end that can not fit the larger disc brake spindles.  Until now, it has been necessary to install a
complete V-8 Mustang steering setup on 6-cylinder cars in order to install disc brakes.  Now, all it takes is two adapter bushings and the outer tie rods
will fit right into the spindles with no further modifications!!!   Use of any spindle other than the stock spindle can cause bumpsteer issues on six
cylinder cars.

Any pre-1970 Mustang requires larger outer tie rods installed in order to install the disc brakes.  For some cars, a simple change to the Granada or 1970
Mustang outer tie rod can be implemented.  That is fine if new tie rods are actually needed, but two of these adapter bushings can do the trick with a
lot less work!!!  Plus the added benefit of never having to replace the tie rod with "custom fit" tie rods that weren't original on the car.  The bushings
can be loc-tite mounted into the spindle and become an integral part of the spindle from then on.

NOTE: This is a modification to the steering on your car.  MustangSteve will not be held responsible from any consequences of modifications using
this product.  Owner must determine suitability and determine that the installation is done safely.

NOTE:  If you purchased spindles that use a rotor that is 1" thick or thicker, they are NOT Granada or Versailles spindles.
Some of the LTD II and Cougar spindles circa 1975-79 look similar to Granada & Versailles spindles and
they
WILL NOT FIT any Mustang or Cougar from 1964-1/2 to 1973.

All Granada and Versailles rotors are 0.875" thick, with minimum thickness of 0.810"

If you have spindles that have a part number starting with C6, they are typically 67-69 drum spindles and NOT 66
spindles as the Ford numbering system would normally indicate.
IMPORTANT:  Once adapters are installed, check to be sure the tie rod has full range of its intended travel. If it does
not, you may be required to grind a small part of the Granada spindle for clearance.  Failure to do so may cause the
stud to break off if the tie rod body comes in contact with the spindle arm during suspension travel.  This is not
typically a concern, BUT CHECK IT ANYWAYS!!!

WARNING:  Some combinations of spindles from different year cars can cause bumpsteer and ackerman angle issues
and may make the car handle quite different than stock.  65-66 Mustangs work best with 65-66 Mustang spindles.  Use
of 67 or newer spindles on 65-66 Mustang can cause the car to handle differently.
