67 Mustang Rear Springs

Post #1 by Humpbackshooter » Wed Aug 15, 2018 9:18 am

Need some info. Putting the rear axle and springs back together. Is there suppose to be any rubber inserts between the spring and the spring plates for the shocks? When I pulled the axle out and tore it down, I didn't see any insulators ( I think that's what they are call in the Ford Manual) I'll try and load a pic or 2 to show what I'm talking about.

Is there a part number for that rubber insulator piece? Also my car doesnt have that piece on the top side of the spring where the 8" sits in. This is a 65 Ranchero with a 66' mustang 8". Should it have it? I always kinda thought it should have something to sit in like that

Looking at your above picture, there isn't any evidence that your car ever had those parts! Besides you would need a lot of extra parts (plus all the mounting hardware) to be able to use those rubber insulators. In my opinion it wouldn't be worth it to change to them, good luck :thumbup: :nod:

Thanks Bubba. I going to put it back together as I found it. (just like the Pic). When I pulled it all apart.....I didn't recall any bushings OR pieces of bushings between the spring and the spring plate. I was thinking that maybe the bushing may have worn out and came out. BUT looking at the springs, you can see where the springs and the spring plate was together. There was a slight wear patten in the spring plate where the springs had been riding.
I just ordered new bushings from RockAuto. The Poly ones. I hoped I got the right ones. 8 bushings for the shackles and 4 big bushings for the front of the leaf. They must be cut in half. ( not really, its the way they are made. You know what I mean. :D ) The ones that were in there was all in one piece (Rubber and hard to get out.) Had to go to NPD for the 6.5" bolts that go in the front hanger hole. Had to cut the passenger side off. The driver side came right out, no problem. I had read that them bolts were sometimes a problem child.
Thanks,
Hump

Thanks,

Look at the diagram again. It show's for the Wagon and Ranchero only.

The Mustang's did not come with an insulator pad.

The rear end looks good. Any more pictures?

O.K. Got my bushings in the other day. Installed the back 8 pcs. Now got to install the front. Only thing is.....both bushing seem a bit to big. No problem. BUT....... When I removed the old ones, there was a outer sleeve that didn't come out. Is it suppose to be there or is it part of the old bushings?

Ps.....still cant post up pics. :bang:

Yes the old bushing would have had a metal sleeve around it, that sleeve will need to be removed first. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:
