All the 67 Mustangs that I have ever worked had the 4 hole riveted original ball joints or the bolted on replacements. To my knowledge only the very early Falcons and Comets (1960 and part of 61) had the 3 bolt type. Good luck :nod:

Your welcome but you should really check yours out first though, just in case if it has already had a set replacement aftermarket control arms installed in the past. Good luck :nod:

The lower balljoints are replaced by replacing the entire control arm.

New bushing, stamped arm, and balljoint all in one.. usually about $25/each.

67s can have either one, however they are most likely 4 bolt joints. as noted check to be sure first, its easy enough just count the rivits.

Recently I have replaced upped ball joint on '66. It had 4 bolt one. The one I removed was replaced by previous owner not that long ago by cheap ones. I went with Moog brand this time, I think it should last longer, will see.
