State College?
You should check out the North East section. We have quite a few members in your area, they get together every now and again and I'm sure they would be glad to have you join them.

Actually it is one of your members that turned me onto Contours and the site... Auto-X Fil is the guy that I hold responsible for me buying this Contour

Oh, NO!!! Not HIM !!!



Just kidding! He's a good guy. He's been very helpful in the Auto cross SCCA section expecially. I've saved some notes from his posts & used his sage advise to improve my driving skills. His approach to Auto-X has been quite thoughtful & measured in many respects.

Since I've never said it before, thank him for me.

Hey Mark, what's up? Here's Bill's contact:

Bill Jenkins
Internet Dept.
Team Ford
5445 Drexel Rd.
Las Vegas, NV 89130
800-791-6436
www.TEAMFORDPARTS.com
bjenkins@teamfordlv.com

He's faster on the phone than via e-mail. Just let him know you're from contour.org and ask for the CEG price. It's usually 10-30% off the prices listed on typical internet parts catalogs, which are already around 30-40% off list.

I'll be in town for the weekend of Sept 8-10 for the autocross. If you want to work on the 'tour on Saturday let me know. PM me here or on the lpac.

I might be up for working on it Saturday... The only thing is that without Justin's garage and tools I am very limited on tool offerings and garage space. I can borrow some stuff from him (or at least beg to borrow) if you tell me what you need and dont have.

Also tomorrow I will be draining and refilling the tranny, and installing the TSS.

Let me know what you want to do...


Edit:

Also, the part you were talking about... Control arm bushing or whatever... Is it the insulator on the pictures at this link:

Nope, that's a subframe bushing. That picture shows the two-bolt control arms anyway, which aren't like yours. You're looking for the control arm bushings. The control arm - that stamped piece with a ball-joint on one end - has bushings on the other end where it bolts to the subframe. You have to replace the whole arm at once if the bushings are gone.

Well I cannot seem to find this 'Control Arm Bushing' in the list of parts for the '95... Is this something that is only on the SE and I need to call to order?

Also, I completely forgot that on Saturday I am heading up to New York to take my sister sky diving for her High School graduation... So I wont even be in State College that weekend.

If any of you have a part number for the control arm bushings that I need that would be great.

Thanks

You can't order the bushings. You have to order the whole control arm. Are you sure yours are shot?
