Idler Arm Assembly Manual Steering 1967-1970

Product Description

Idler Arm Assembly for all 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs with Manual Steering.

If you have noticed a decrease in ride quality and drastically increased tire wear, perhaps it is time to revamp and update the components of your 1967-1970 Mustang’s manual steering system. No one wants to ride in a noisy, bumpy and rough ride and a new idler arm assembly like this one can help eliminate those excessive vibrations you feel. This Idler Arm Assembly for all 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970 Mustangs is a direct stock replacement that will help heighten the manual steering’s responsiveness and accuracy.

The idler arm attaches at the one end of the center link on the passenger’s side of the vehicle and this assembly comes with the bushings, hardware and mounting bracket included. The other side of the idler arm bolts directly to the vehicle's frame rail. Typically, the idler arm is attached on the opposite side of the center link from the pitman arm and the vehicle's frame which allows it to hold the center link at the proper height. This Idler Arm Assembly will fit any 1967-1970 Mustang with manual steering and comes ready to install directly in place of the stock arm with a straight forward, headache-free installation.

Idler arms generally break down and become unstable more quickly than pitman arms because of the pivot function that is built into them. It is a good idea to replace this component of your steering system because after years of use and stress, its integrity is likely compromised. A worn out idler arm can lead to poor ride quality, unpleasant vibrations and unpredictable, uneven steering abilities in your 1967, 1968, 1969 or 1970 Mustang.

*Mounting hardware is sold separately.

If the stock manual steering system in your Mustang has become less responsive, is malfunctioning completely or you just want to make a conversion from manual to power steering, or vice versa, CJ Pony Parts has got you covered. Ordering any of the more than 500 steering parts here at CJ Pony Parts for any year Mustang is so simple—you can order online right now or give the sales team a call any time to place your order!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Borgeson 800111 change over Used it in my 67 Fastback to replace the old power steering setup with the Borgeson: 800111. My old power steering box was 1 inch shaft (I did not know this when I brought the gearbox) so i needed the center link plus the 1 1/8 Pitman arm plus the idler to complete the change works super great now

Product Questions


I have a 68 Mustang. I think it was power steering. Now a manual. How can I tell the difference between manual or power arm?

Asked by: Raymond
If you have power steering, you'll be able to move the steering wheel with ease at low speed. If you have manual steering, it will be a LOT more work.
