    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.

    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?

    • Hello! Ford Performance does not list the Durometer of the Ford Performance Rear Upper Axle Bushings

    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.

    Where exactly does this go? Im wondering if this bushing is for where the rear axle connects to the rear control arm (or aka track arm)? Mine are completely shot and I am having no luck finding them, so is that what these are? 1 answer

      Great

      Product came fast works as expected. Only thing wad once the old sleeves are removed you have to use them as reference on how far to drive them into the axel housing. A line or rib indicator of depth would be nice.

      Rear Upper Axle Bushings

      I bought these for my 1999 Stang V6 because the rear upper axle bushings needed replaced as well as the rear control arms. I ordered them from AM and a few short days later they arrived. Shipping was qick and worry free. The bushings fit like a glove and now I'm ready to install my rear axle. The bushings also came with c-clips, which I used, and those fit no prob! The bushings also came with a small bottle of friction grease which came in handy. Overall, very happy with this product! Thanks American Muscle for coming through again!

      Definitely tightened my car up

      The rear end bushings always get over looked while fixing up a car, (lower arm, upper axle,etc,), they really help stiffen up a sloppy rear end. My personal belief is if youre going to drop your rear end to install new gears as I did or for any other reason you may as well just put new upper axle bushings in while you have easy access. Dont let the stories of it being hard scare you, its actually very simple. Beat the old ones out with a hammer and with a little less force, tap the news ones in. Just tap your way around the bushing, it honestly doesn't matter if you bend the flange a little by hitting it.

      good quality

      Ordered mainly for the bushings, but when i purchased my 5 lug swap axles the c-clips and friction modifier were nice to have, and its all ford parts so, you know they fit right. Bushings arent too bad, if you have the car on a lift you can use a fairly big hammer to pound the old ones out and then you can either press, or (like i did) hammer the new ones back in!

      Looking for factory upper axle bushings, here you go. Mine were shot, replaced with these and noises went away. I'm not really sure why the Ford kit comes with the c-clips and the friction modifier. I didnt end up needing them with the install.
