After a cursory exam, it looks as if I'm going to need to rebuild the suspension in the 68 coupe. Anybody have experience with Midolyne bushings? From what I read, they are more durable than rubber but not as noisy or stiff as polyurethane. Pros and cons would be greatly appreciated.
TIA,

James

I've just installed the Canadian Mustang "Big Kit" on my '67. The
bushings seem to be as advertised - stiffer than rubber but not
as stiff as poly. Unfortunately, it's going to be a few more weeks
before I can get her out on the road so I can't speak to their
actual performance.

I bought the front end rebuild kit from Laurel Mountain Mustang. It's the same kit as the Canadian Mustang kit with the Midolyne bushings. I went this route after having read everything I could find on the forum and elsewhere on the subject. What I received looks good, but since I've been working on finishing my new garage, I haven't had time to install the kit yet. Hope to soon. From all I've heard, the feedback on Midolyne seems positive.

I just installed new Midolyne bushings for my rear spring shackles(along with new springs), shocks & front sway bar. It really made a big difference in the way my car handles. The steering doesn't seem to be as sloppy either. I'm impressed so far. I still have the strut rod bushings to install along with lower A arm bushings.

Been driving with the big kit for almost 9 months now.
No complaints or problems.
NO squeaks, not too stiff and handles alot better.
IMHO Buy them you won't be displeased.
I also bought a few other items from CM and they were very helpful and polite every time I talked with them.
Good luck. I enjoyed my suspension rebuild, learn alot!

If you have any questions drop me a private message and I'll try and assist.
