I plan to make my own upper and lower control arms. (and possibly change the angle of the uppers) What I need to know is.

Where can I get some hi quality race app bushings and grease fittings for the control arms I intend to make?

URLs, or shop names wanted. :)

TAD out

I made my own lowers and used Energy Suspension bushings. Grease fittings are available at any hardware store. They are usually 1/16-27 NPT but a 1/4-28 tap works perfectly.
I bought my bushings through Summit. Think they were about $80.
Let me know if you need any dimensional info before you start cutting.

Tad, have a look here http://www.suspension.com/4-bar.htm
These guys are a huge Energy Susp dealer and will happily sell singles. The link I set you has specs on building Mustang lower bars. I used their bushing end specs for my lowers except the width on the Chev pin needed to be 2.65 rather than 2.75.
The bushings are a three piece deal with softer flanged outers to allow leaning and a rock hard center to control fore to after movement.
They will also sell you single bushings for the housing uppers.
Regards, Gerry
