1985 Mustang Convertible Front Suspension: Part 2

Quite a bit of progress on the Mustang yesterday.

The accident that the car was in bent the A-Arm, broke the strut inside and bent the sway bar link (all driver side). Used a death wheel to cut the link in half. Once that was done the rest was pretty easy.

I’ll need to take a look at the other strut when I remove it to make sure how the top of the strut is correctly assembled.

I also removed the sway bar to replace the bushings.

All in all it’s going well.

Not looking forward to putting the springs on but I do have the Maximum Motorsports spring tool and that should help.

1985 Ford Mustang Front Suspension: Part 1

Here’s a pic showing the front suspension of the Mustang. I’m in the process of changing the A-arm, the tie rods and the strut. Can you see what’s (horribly) wrong?

Pretty easy so far but then again, this car was stored inside and has 35k miles.
