Idler Arm for all 1965-1966 Mustangs with a V8 Engine.

If you have noticed decreased ride quality and drastically increased tire wear, perhaps it is time to revamp and update the components of your 1965-1966 V8 Mustang’s steering system. No one wants to ride in a noisy, bumpy and rough ride and a new idler arm like this one can help eliminate those excessive vibrations you feel. This Idler Arm for all 1965-1966 Mustangs with a V8 engine is a direct fit replacement that will help tighten up the steering and you can get yours from CJ Pony Parts today.

The idler arm attaches at the one end of the center link on the passenger’s side of the vehicle. The other side of this 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 comes with the necessary washers, castle nuts and cotter pins for a proper, secure and straight forward installation.

Idler arms are generally more likely to break down and become unreliable than pitman arms because of the pivot function built into them. It is a good idea to replace this component of your steering system after years of use and stress has most likely effected its integrity. A worn out idler arm can lead to poor ride quality, unpleasant vibrations and unpredictable, uneven steering abilities.

*Will NOT fit the Shelby GT350.
