I am not too familiar with Mustangs upper control arms and what suited what model.
I have tried to attach this pic as I am trying to ID what these suited in USA. I was told 1970 mustang, but I believe the upper shaft mount is not correct. I thought 1970 mustang had larger 3/4 ID hex bushes with greas nipple in the end. The ones in pic had a metal and rubber bush pushed into upper arm and 5/16 bolt holding shaft to bush. Also main mounting bolts I thought 7/16 UNC and these ones UNF.
Any advise please

I had a look around and in USA some companys sell a modified shaft mount and bush kit. I think that's what happened here. These came from USA. I got sent over and the guy said they from 1970 mustang. Someone else in USA said arms look correct but not the mounting shaft. On ebay you see kits from MOOG etc and they look like this shaft. I am guessing it was replaced at some point
I just wanted to make sure no mustang around that era came out with that as std. Just on that anyone can give me a lesson on upper arm when they had 4 hole ball joint and when they had 3 hole ???
Correct me if I'm wrong fella's but I think the 3hole to 4hole ball joint change took place between the '67 to '68 models.
(PRAYER) Oh thank you Wild Turkey American Honey & Cola in those small thin bottles, for giving me the strength to act like a half wit, and say stupid things at inappropriate times, semi-anonymously, on a public forum.
So are you saying lets say from 65 it was a 3 bolt hole BJ and say 67 it went to 4 hole.
So in 1970 did it go back to 3 hole ?
I cant attach file but I noticed on USA ford parts list they show 1965 mustang & falcon with thie type of shaft mount bush and bolt as per my original pic of arms. I am wondering now if they are 1965 arm upper but the 3 hole thing confused me so that's why I asked about the BJ
