David ~ DesertTBird is looking for the contact information for the '58 Tbird bushing replacement supplier and he can't find what he saved nor the info in the tech.resource library. I could not find it either. If anyone has the name of the company and web site that has the rear bushings please shoot him a PM with that information and copy me also. Last I checked they wanted $475 for the full set of 22 (or 44 pcs).

It might be Rare Parts Inc. They show a suspension bushing kit - rear.

Yup, John, that is who I was thinking of. What I saw was that there was supposed to be 22 bushings, but their 18109 Suspension Bushing Kit Rear only shows 18. But he can call them and they should be able to tell him exactly what he needs, if there are a few others not in that 18109 kit. Thanks!

Carl Heller ~ partsetal here on the Forum, just told me in email that HE has that '58 bushing set in stock. He also has the fasteners (nuts and bolts) available for separate purchase. So you might contact him about them. You can see his ad in the Advertisements Forum... Carl sent me a pic of his bushing kit and also the '58 rear suspension break out. You will be able to see the bushing and hardware in this breakout and what his kit looks like. Unlike other kits that might be out there that have more pieces in it that have to be put together, his is engineered in such a way that his 14 components are one piece and do not have to be pieced together to install them. Others have components of 18 or 22 that have to be pieced together. He can give you more information regarding his kit. Here are the pix. First the link to the breakout graphic, then a pic of his actual parts kit.
