They are real simple. The bottom fronts have mounting plates where the bolts go into the lower "A" leaf and the tops have a stem. On the rear its mounting bolts. There are lots of rubber bushings on them.

I had 2 1956 Fords myself, a Customline and a Crown Vic convertible. One had a 312 Interceptor engine and the other was a 292. Both had the Teapot carbs.

At one time you could get adjustable shocks or booster springs to fit around the rear shocks.

What rear brake backing plates can i put in a 1956 ford f100?


check around as some sedans have the same rear brake setups as the f100. Cruise the wreckers (ford specialists) with your backing plate and find a backing plate same as yours from any sedan around the same year as yours.. Brake capacity is calculated on vehicle weight and as manufacturers are reluctant to spend money on developing new brake systems they tend to use the same parts on as many different models as possible.. Another thought car manufacturers use brake systems built by brake specialists like Bendix and Ferrodo and others so check other makes (dodge,chrylser even the chev range for a possible match of brake assemblies in that year.

1956 ford customline 292t,b.special;my heater will not operate & no hot air out of vents. 1956 ford customline [292 thunderbird special engine]


usually this is air trapped in the system. Try leaving the cap loose on cold start and run engine until upper hose gets hot (ie thermostat opens). That should burp air. Then keep system full as it cools down. so it uscks coolant back in as it cools. Then, tighten cap.

95 ef ford sedan suspension problem


What was said about the wear of the front end part when the alignment was given? I could be wrong but, I would say, Not likely for the tie rod ends and definately not the shocks for knocking sounds.. It sounds more like bad ball joints poping, although the idler arm and tye rod ends could be worn also .
