I run a 77 ltd II.This off season I want to work on freeing the suspension up.I have found a mono ball front lower control arm bushing but can't seen to find anything for the rear.Rules state stock suspesion front and rear no tube arms, shocks on the rear can be remounted on the axle which I have already done but upper mounts must remain in stock location.The frame is shortened to 109".The car drives good most of the time but I want to do something to gain some ground in the turns. any Ideas?

Aurora Bearings has a great selection of Spherical Bearings from which you can make your own custom bushing inserts. http://www.aurorabearing.com/

Where did you get the front control arm mono-ball?

c21 ub machine part no.ubm32-0315 fits 65-78 full size ford.I'm from southwestern Michigan and the part is in a Lane automotive catalog.I don't know if ub has a web site but Lanes does where you can get a circle track catalogue.

I have restubbed the rear of my old LTD Super Stock with an early Galaxie rear stub that had 3 link and a panhard bar! The upper link on that combo stock was adjustable!! Just my opinion!
