Back in 2003/2004 I also had big problems with some bushings of my rear suspension on my '58. I searched for nearly two years (almost gave up and considered the strangest solutions and alternative ways to fix the problem so I could drive again) But my dream was to keep the car as original as possible so I took the time. I live in the Netherlands -Europe- and we need an inspection on cars every year by the goverment to drive it on public roads. I didn't passed the test that year so I had no permission to drive my car any longer. Just looking at my T-bird for a long time doesn't make you a happy guy, but I finally purchased the bushings I needed. I'm not sure what parts you need for your friends car but I will dig in my archives to help, if you like.

(Hope my English is not that bad.......)

Hi there
As the manufacturer of the 58/59 Lincoln rear suspension kit which has coils the same as the birds,maybe I could do a bunch of sets,if there is enough interest.
Are all the parts hard to find or only certain ones in the kit ?

Marco, if you spend much time reading forums, etc. trust me, your English is better than 95% of the people that think they know it.... I'm not sure that is because they don't know any better or if they are kinda lazy, like I can get when I type on these forums.

If you could come up with a reasonably priced kit, I would be happy to get one. I am sure when I look at those cracked and dried up bushings in my 58's rear, that original suspension is probably done.

Hi RustyNCa, I intend to join forums this year, so practice will be the keyword.
Which bushings are you looking for exactly? I saw the picture from Frank58 but in my memory the partnumbers of the pic I had were different numbers. (Hope to find this info back soon again)
