I thought I saw a question like this a while back, but I can't find it. I need a strut rod for the right (passenger) side of one of my '68 Coupes. NPD lists it as "OUT" but Mustangs Unlimited shows one with a footnote that states: "Designed for 69 Boss & 70-73 all, but will work for all '68-73"! What's up with this? Does anyone know the difference or where I can find the correct piece? I really dislike dealing with Mustangs Unlimited, and am worried about correct fit of the part, after getting upper control arm shaft kits from them that had wide, coarse threads on the outside of the bushings that didn't match the fine threads on the control arms until I massaged the arm. Please help me avoid buying more parts that need to be cobbled just to make them fit. All comments are welcomed.

I have checked CJ pony parts and Larry's Thunderbird & Mustang parts and they both show 68-73. CJ has P/N C80Z3468A for RH and P/N C9ZZ3468D for the LH. Hope this helps.

We replaced a bent one in my 68 with one from a v-8 Maverick.

The LH side is a reproduction. We had them but pulled them from catalogs years ago.

Vintage-mustang.com is a good place for parts. There are a number of people selling 67-68 parts. I have had good luck with marco but he is gone 'till June 1. How about Mustang Ranch in Washington? I also had good luck with PonyExpress in Md. 301-937-5648

would that be the Wild Mustang Ranch in Woodinville, Washington? If so they do have many mustangs, most parts are already pulled. If you need help with them I could check out parts for you. Let me know

Yes, that is the place. Do they pull the parts off and put them away, or are they Just picked over. A friend of mine locally, got a sheet metal part for his 67 Shelby. They cut it EXACTLY as he requested, and for a price that was quite reasonable.
