Hello everyone!

I have a question that no other forums seems capable of answering, and I was referred by several people to come here. I hope this is OK.

I have an Australian 1975 XB Falcon GS (yeah, I know it isn't a vintage Mustang, but it's as close as I could get; I'm an Aussie). I've been updating the car using Mustang aftermarket parts. However, I want to run a roller bearing idler arm, unfortunately I don't know what Mustang my idler arm is the same as.

Here is an Ebay auction with a picture of a NOS Falcon idler arm:

Here is an auction with a better picture of an aftermarket one:

These idler arms have a bush on both sides, instead of a balljoint type fitting that some Mustangs use.

Thank you all in advance,
Kind regards,
-Matt

Visually, it's the same as a '65/'66 Mustang idler arm. I second contacting John Dinkel at OpenTracker.com. The guy knows Mustang and Falcon suspensions. He's the only one, that I'm aware of, that is producing roller idler arms for the '65/'66 Mustang (and I wouldn't buy from anywhere else if I learned of some other place).
