I searched the "tech write ups" section and couldn't find one on replacing the axle pivot bushings, did I just miss it? I have a 95 and need to replace the pivot bushings. VERY little info in Chilton and Haynes says to drop the whole ttb assy. I'm mechanicaly inclined but this is my first Ford. Any help would be great. Thanks

Thanks! Very helpful. So, once the bolt that goes through the bushing is removed it will drop down far enough to work on? Anything else need to be removed or disconected? Does a jack or jack stands need to be placed anywhere? Sorry bout all the questions. This is my first time working on this type of suspension
Thanks

no, i removed the coil spring holders and radius arm bushings so it would drop down enough for the ball joint remover to fit. in the end it prolly would have been easier to just remove the whole ttb assembly, one of my bushings didnt go in straight. and it was a pita to get anything done under there. you need to support it by the frame with jack stands.

Be safe and always use jackstands to support the frame when working on the suspension or axles. The stands will allow you to lower the axle beams enough to change out the bushings. The bushing ends need to clear below the mounting brackets and engine crossmember. I use a floor jack under the axle beam, and another bottle jack under the hube for leverage (wheels removed).

Ah ha..Thanks! Does sound less frustrating to just pull the whole damn thing!
