Mustang and cougar are the same for the same year car. 69 and 70 have different spindles, tie rods, drag link......

If you have a 69, stay with what fits 69 .
There is never time to do it right, but always time to do it over

i think he said he had a 70. So he should stick with that, 70 is a bit stronger

Keep in mind that tie rod ends changed from 69 to 70!

A-arms and strut rod parts will remain the same.
