Hi,

Can anyone tell what the different between 68 and 71 -73 mustang strut rods? I switched out the LCA on my 67 with 68 LCAs. Trying to find some used 68 strut rods that will work and a guy locally has some 71 mustang strut rods I can acquire to get my car moving again. Will the 71 strut rods work?

Any and all responses are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

1968-69 strut rods have a stepped down threaded end, 1970-73 do not

CougarCJ,

Thanks for the reply. I thought they were pretty much the same with the exception of the threaded ends. I feel more comfortable about purchasing the 71 strut rods now.

Again thanks for the response.
