PostSubject: Strut Bearing   Sat Aug 15, 2009 6:49 pm

Guys

Whats the skinny on replacing the strut bearing on my 83 Zephyr? By that I mean can I still source stock ones, or must I buy ones for a Fox Mustang? Also I'm to understand some Stangs have a different 3 bolt pattern?

Thanks!

Tommy

I can verify the bolt pattern is different. I have Mustang struts with the stock Zeph upper strut mount for that reason. i have a variety of issues with my front suspension right now, so i couldn't say for sure how well it works together.

From what I have read the bearing cap should be the same from model years 79 to 89. However in 90 they changed the pattern of the bolts.

Thoughts???
