        will these fit v6 axle 7.5" ? If so I suggest you include it in the description . I am confused if it fits all mustangs with 8.8" only . Thanks!

        • This will no fit on any of V6 or 4 cylinder mustang 7.5" axles, we do apologize as it does say all in the description and it will have to get fixed on the website.

        What is the C clamps for? Do they come with instruction for a 1993 convertible mustang gt?

        • The C clips are actually designed to hold the axle in place within the differential housing. Without the clip in place, you can definitely get a lot of play with the axle or potentially it could slide out entirely. If your clips are shot and you don't want to replace them or utilize the c clips in this kit, an alternate option would be to get a c clip eliminator kit.

        Are the rubber bushing supposed to spin easily inside the metal sleeves on my Mustangs upper mount on the rearend?

        I have a 2001 gt and I've been trying to beat and pry the old ones out but they will not budge. Any answers to help? And the new c clips... they have nothing to do with the new bushings? Just axle c clips they are?

        • The Ford Performance Rear Upper Axle Bushings includes 2 axle c-clips. They are not meant for the bushings. Also, we recommend soaking the stock bushings in penetrating oil for a day. That will make it a bit easier to remove them.

        Are these bushings the same durometer as the 1993 Cobra/FRPP units?

            Awesome kit!

            These fixed my rear end noise and while the c clips and friction modifier seemed wasteful I ended up rebuilding my Trac Lok clutches a few weeks later and already had these! Awesome price and everything was good quality!

            Works well, came as described. The bushings made a massive difference in how the rear end of my car handled, compared to the blown out stocks

            Worked great

            Old axle bushings were worn out luckily American muscle sells these ford racing axle bushings. You don’t need the c-clips or limited slip additive to install the bushings but it’s nice they come with it. I work in a shop and it took some work to get the old ones out with an air hammer so keep that in mind if you’re doing it yourself. There’s a huge difference in the rear after replacement.

            I did not use the tool, and one side was a pain. I ended up getting one side out pretty easy, but the other side...it mushroomed when I tried to bang it out. BUY THE TOOL!
