New! Mustang Roller Bearing Front Spring Perches

NEW!  Roller Bearing Spring Saddles / Perches for your Mustang, Cougar or other Classic Ford!
A part that almost always needs replacement in all 65-73 Mustangs (and other Classic Fords) is the Front Coil Spring Seat and Bushing Assembly.  This part is often referred to as the Spring Saddle or Spring Perch.  It bolts to the Upper Front Suspension Control Arm and the Front Coil Spring rests on this Assembly.  There is a "pivot" rubber bushing in this assembly that is almost always in poor condition, and the assembly needs replacement.

The original Ford design with this rubber bushing was obviously a "cost saving" style of design.  A reproduction of this original design is available as our Part Number SU-129. 

For those of you that wish to make a significant upgrade to your front suspension, we now have new Spring Perches with Roller Bearings!  These are just super nice and very well made parts.  These parts are even serviceable, but honestly, you should never have to take them apart or do anything at all to them. 

There are thousands of these special Roller Bearing Spring Saddles that have been installed on Mustangs and other Classic Fords over the years with fantastic results.  These cars have ranged from daily street drivers to all-out race cars, so this part is not really some kind of "race only" item.  The benefits are just as great on the casual street cruiser as they are on the vintage race car.

Like the originals, these Spring Perches fit a wide variety of cars.  Here is the list:

  • 1964-1973 Mustang
  • 1967-1973 Cougar
  • 1960-1970 Falcon
  • 1960-1974 Comet
  • 1966-1971 Fairlane
  • 1968-1971 Montego
  • 1968-1971 Torino
  • 1970-1977 Maverick
You can read more by clicking here - they are Part Number SU-1291.
