A quick search on "strut rod bushings" on this forum lead me to a thread I remembered reading...

http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...-bushings.html

This should get you a good idea. This thread is for a different year, but I bet they're the same procedure.

Ride On,
Noel

I just replaced the strut rod bushings on my girl friends 66 today. The car was already on jack stands from finishing up a transmission swap ( god I hope that thing works.) I just took the bolt off the bushing end and then then unbolted the rod from the control arm and took it out from the back side of the wheel, and installed it in reverse. I torqued it down to what if felt like it came off, and put the bushing end back as close to what it was as possible. If yours were as bad as hers, I figure getting them close will make a big difference in its self. I will probably have to fine tune it later on but I will worry about that when we get it out on the road.
