    Lower control arm bushes

    Hello all
    I want to order some poly bushes for my front suspension but have a choice of 7/16" or 9/16" lower control arm bushings.
    I have a 68 coupe with a 200.
    Does anybody have any idea whether a 68 coupe would need the 7/16" or 9/16" set?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately there are no guarantees that the arms are original so best way is to pull the arms and check the existing bush sizes. I have done this job on 2 Mustangs and found a large bush on one side, and small on the other. Worked out well as luck would have it, by mixing the parts from 2 kits but it was just pure luck!

      I thought that might be the case! It was worth a try asking though!
