The fron end squeak is gone! Turns out the upper control arm was stripped where the bushings go. New Arm, full-o-grease... Silence is golden. Guess I'll keep the car a little longer. Anyone familiar with the turn signal cam? For some reason I can't get this one squared away. I'm using one of those universal fit "HELP" parts... Not very satisfied with it. Anyone know where I can get an original fit cam?

NPD, Mustangs Plus, or Mustangs Unlimited should carry them. Good Luck,

Brope,
I purchased a repro one from NPD. It lasted about a year because I didn't know that I had to put some sort of grease on the contacts or they would wear out.
Then I purchased a NOS one from NPD, thinking it would be better built and hold up better. Cost about $30 more. Turns out that they are exactly the same and made by Scott Drake in Camarillo, CA. He makes them both but puts the "NOS" one in a box with "FORD" on it and it sells for a lot more $$. So...grease the contact rings and don't assume that New Old Stock has any old parts at all. By the way, the last one is working great.
