If I replace the strut rod bushings on a 65 do I need to get an alingment? It looks like these simply lock the strut rod in a specific place, not like there is an adjustment. Also any tips on doing the job? Also the 65 and 66 use the same bushings, right?

Thanks in advance.

I agree with dino.

I did mine at the same time I did the Shelby drop, so I had to have mine aligned anyway...but if your bushings are worn, and your car was aligned with worn bushings, putting in new ones could potentially change things.

As far as I know '65s and 66's are identical. One thing some people have said is that Polyeurathane Strut rod bushings can cause your strut rods to break. I don't know. I put in PE ones and haven't had any trouble (knock on wood).
