They will be the same for the Ranchero as they are for the Torino and Montego up through 76, the Cougar from 74 - 76 and more than likely the same as the Thunderbird/LTD II/Cougar from 77 through 79. They are all on the same frame/platform. It should be simple enough to find, that's for sure.


Here's an excert from the Ranchero and Torino Handling Manual which is available online at http://www.mre-books.com/ranchero.html. ( We recommend setting the alignment to the following: Caster +3 to +5 1/2, the more positive the better. Camber 0 to -1/2. Set toe inn 1/16 inch to 1/8th. You'll need the toe closer to 1/8th if you're using rubber bushings instead of polyurethane.) I hope this helps you out, Good Luck, Kenny/MrBlueOval
