Ford Mustang Service Manual: Rear Suspension

Torque Specifications


WARNING: All vehicles are equipped with gas pressurized shock absorbers


WARNING: All vehicles are equipped with gas pressurized shock absorbers which will extend unassisted. Do not apply heat or flame to the shock absorbers during removal or component servicing. Failure to follow these instructions can result in personal injury.

CAUTION: Suspension fasteners are critical parts because they affect performance of vital components and systems and their failure can result in major service expense. A new part with the same part number must be installed if installation becomes necessary. If substitution is necessary, the part must be of the same finish and property class. Torque values must be used as specified during reassembly to make sure of correct retention of these parts.

  • rear spring (4460)
  • rear shock absorber (18125)
  • rear upper suspension arm and bushings (5500)
