RE: 1969 2+2 427 4 Speed


The Energy Suspension rear bushings I ordered are listed for 1965 to 1970.

However, 1969 and 1970 rear suspensions are different than 1965 to 1968 suspenions.

Rock Auto knew that.

But I ordered from Summit Racing.

The 69-70 use the same bushings for all the rear connections.

1965 to 1968 different bushings.

Lesson learned,

Fortunately, Energy Suspension's "help line" has got the right parts on the route to my place. (at extra cost)

Only the forward lower control arm bushings are different. The rest are the same.
I'm not sure that the big cylindrical pieces are for.

They install inside the bushing and the mounting bolt goes through them.

You Are making progress Randy!

The rings fit on the outside of the big end of the bushing where it sits outside the arm. Stabilizes the arm itself a little more inside the bracket I figure?

This is how they fit on a pair I did years ago.

 The picture is not accurate of contents, I have found out, the hard way.

 That's the metal tubes, I wonder about the big black ones.

One job to do tonight,

A little bit of blasting sand got into the differential.

I had to get every last grain out.

I think I will give it a final shot of compressor air tomorrow.

With the body 90% done, it needed a home until the frame is fully assembled.

Welcome home biggrin

This takes all pressure off me to assemble the frame.

I want to take my time and only do things once wink

As for the frame,
