Today I blew some Christmas money. Bought a set of Ford Motor Sport's lower control arms. These control arms are interesting because the end that bolts to the rear subframe is a ball and socket type connector, no polyurethane bushings. The rears are polyurethane bushed with zerk fittings. These are a little more expensive than your average lower control arms. Anyway, I got the old ones out and they don't amount to much more than stamped pieces of junk. The FMS' are heavy....I had my head up under the passenger side lca when it dislodged and popped me in the eye, hurt like a mo-fo. So I spend a couple of hours lining up the holes in the lca with the holes in each of the forward control arm eyelets. It definitely was harder than I thought as it took a lot of coersion with a rubber mallet. You miss it by a couple of milimeters...its a no go. So I got both sides hooked up to the rear subframe and then quit. I had to order the rubber isolators that sit on the lca's spring perch, mine were pretty rotten. Dealer should have them in tomorrow. I'm sure I'm done with the hardest part unless its gonna be a bitch to line up the eyelets with the holes in the perch under the axle tube....probably will be...Murphy's law.... So, I hope I notice a difference with these thangs or I'm gonna be pissed at all the effort I spent. To be continued.........
