This Idler Arm Mounting Bracket gets mounted directly to the frame rail to hold the idler arm securely in place. If you have felt your steering system develop increased levels of play and is nowhere near as easy as it once was to control your 1965-1966 Mustang, it’s a good idea to replace your idler arm mounting bracket. This will ensure that your idler arm is fixed in position correctly and securely and will make turning your Mustang easier and more accurate. This Idler Arm Mounting Bracket for all 1965-1966 Mustangs comes with the retaining castle nut and washer to firmly attach to the center link.
The idler arm holds the passenger side of the steering linkage in place and is designed to mirror the pitman arm that is attached to the steering gear on the other side. When you turn the steering wheel, the steering gear turns the pitman arm to make the steering linkage turn. This is what causes your wheels to turn and the idler arm helps to make the turning process smoother and more controlled.
