Doesn't matter if it is dated or not... good info is good info. Some noobie down the line might read this thread and get it. That is the purpose of taking a few seconds to type a response with good info. It might be futile, but on the chance it is not, it is worth the effort.

Have a good one.

Unless you really want to purposely screw up your Mustang, spend the money to do it right the first time. Shortcuts inevitably get really expensive and cost a lot more in $$$$$, headaches, and love for your vehicle. Be patient and save your $$$$$ in order to save your Mustang.

The suspension bind does not occur at the outside of the bushings but more so on the connecting pin/bolt that hold it in place. Shaving off the outer edges of the bushings will do nothing to prevent this binding . Spherical bushings however was the answer to this .

Polly bushings actually create the snap over steer , and I would never recommend them for hard cornering, shaved or not they will bind. They are great for a straight line launch . For the best of both worlds spherical is the way to go.
