    Here's the deal: I wanted new RUBBER bushings, sleeves, and washers. Couldn't find a kit that did not use thermo plastic, prothane, or poly bushings. So I bought a complete thermo plastic bushing kit from CJ's #SRB2 to get the sleeves and washers, and went to NPD for the original spec rubber bushings #3A187-2. After doing more research, I found that a popular and effective handling improvement is to replace JUST the front bushings with a harder compound. This mod is mentioned numerous times in forums and is recommended for both street and track.

    Hi Frank

    I hope you do not mind me messaging you.

    Quick Question about your 68.

    You mentioned in a post that you are running an explorer rear end with 4.5 Grad-A-Track leaf springs. Is that correct?


    I currently own a 68 coupe that needs new leafs in the back. I have an explorer rear waiting to put in it as well. How much lift did you get with the 4.5's? I would like to get at least an inch over factory.

    Just curious what you can recommend.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Peter
