I was just wondering what type of bushings do in need to use on a 84 mustang. I've only been racing for about a year now and don't know if I should use rudder or urethane in the front or rear. And does any one know about how much rear percentage I need and how much left side % I need. I an building a new car this year and it is the first one that I have ever done so I need all the help that I can get. I think the car is going to weight just a little over 2,000 lb.

I can't give you any answers to the percentage thing, but as far as the bushings go spend your money on the polyurathane one's. They will hold up a lot better. Matter of fact they will outlast your car.

Mustangs and Pintos are very nose-heavy, so getting enough rear weight is a problem. On dirt you need about 52-53% left and 50-51% rear, with about 47-49% cross. I ended up with 49.6% rear and was able to use wedge and stagger to help balance things out. Hope this helps!!
