Our ’68 was in dire need of many new rear suspension components. Much of what was existing was so rusty it was completely useless and needed replacement, so we decided to upgrade the components to include urethane bushings and a rear sway bar while we were at it. We completely redid the suspension, replacing the trailing arms and spindles.

Follow along as we lead you through this rear suspension project. Of course, we’ll be explaining just one side of the car, and you’ll need to repeat the appropriate steps on the other side as well. When you’re completely finished, have a professional alignment done.

As with any project where you’ll be beneath the car, carefully jack the car up and place it on jackstands. Be sure the car is in Neutral with the parking brake off. Remove the wheel and let’s get started.
