Control Your Control Arm Flex. Improve your Mustang's straight line acceleration and cornering grip at the same time with these Extreme Joint Mustang Lower Control Arms from J&M. With your stock lower control arms, the exceptionally soft OEM rubber bushings insure your control arms don't bind, preventing undesirable handling characteristics like snap oversteer. However, if you try to accelerate or stop quickly in your 2005 - 2012 V6, GT or GT500 Mustang and you're likely to experience wheel hop or rear end instability. Control your control arm flex with J&M's Extreme Joint Mustang Lower Control arms and go faster - everywhere.

Better Handling. With J&M's exclusive design, you get the benefits of a rigid bushing, resulting in better straight-line grip, but the performance of a spherical bearing under cornering, so you get the best of both worlds. The exclusive design of these lower control arms features a steel inner ball surrounded by polyurethane outer cups. The result is great traction during straight-line acceleration, and bind-free performance during spirited cornering for predictable grip.

Quality. Though harder to work with, J&M selected round tubing for its superior strength and resilience to bending and torsion when compared with rectangular or square tubing, while also being lighter. With an offset design to guarantee bind free geometry, these lower control arms are the perfect suspension upgrade to your 05-14 V6, 05-14 GT or 07-12 GT500 Mustang.

lowering If I decide to lower my car would these effect my traction in a negative way since they are not adjustable?

ebgonzalez1

  • No, I had these on my stang prior to lowering and kept them after. Traction is still improved if anything being lowered and with these it still feels as tight as some with adjustable arms that I have driven.

Would this effect the traction control in adverse conditions? I'm sure this is a stupid question but my 2012 5.0 with 3.73 gears has entirely to much wheel spin but living in Alaska when I push the magic button during winter snow (traction control) the car is simply amazing. Was just wondering if this product would hurt that?

akbandito

  • No. This product is designed to keep your axle planted to prevent wheel hop. The axle ultimately is more stable, slightly improving traction. Should have no negative effects on your car.

    No more wheel hop!

    (NOTE): These are just as good as the expensive ones-very solid and Energy Suspension bushings. Install was quick (Get new bolts & nuts from Ford). Down to the dirty...When people say wheel hop, they also mean when you take a corner and the rear bounces out over a bump. You know the drill; lifting on the throttle around a bumpy corner so the end doesn't bounce around and slide out. These will cure most of that issue if not all of it. First test drive and I had none of that issue anymore. The car became very predictable and I no longer braced over bumps. Rear end is more controlled and because of that, my grip increased.

    One drive will make you a believer!

    Here in metro Detroit there are lots of terrible roads that would make the rear end of my 2005 GT hop and shudder like a clumsy piece of junk when I tried to drive fast over them. Well, my first drive after installing these control arms was a revelation. I immediately headed for a really bad section of road to see how they would do, and was amazed. The rear end stayed planted over all but the biggest bumps and broken sections, and even then it only hopped a little bit. Hard launches were a breeze, with no more hopping or shuddering just wheelspin! Because the rear suspension is so much tighter and more precise it makes the whole car drive better. Handling feels much sharper with the vague feeling from the axle gone - I really felt the difference when taking on-ramps! I honestly can't think of any negatives to these control arms. They ride nicely and are very quiet, and can be installed in less than 2 hours if you have someone to help you. Bottom line - if you still have stock lower control arms on your car, spend the $175 and get these. Beg, borrow or steal if you have to, you will not be disappointed!

    The Perfect LCAs

    I had some hope that these LCAs would help with the traction issues, and it helped big time. My launches before were a "squat and go", but after the installation, there is little "squat" and a lot of "go". I have to mention that the passenger-side LCA gave me and a friend of mine the hardest time - it didn't line up with the bracket on the chassis. I needed 3 people to push the entire rear assembly forward just to have someone put the bolt in. Other than that, I'm very happy with these LCAs. There's no comparing these LCAs to the stock ones.

    Throw away your stock Lower Controle arms

    These control arms function better than I ever thought possible. The car is smother , corners better and accellerates better. The squeeks went away now that the suspension can work without binding or flexing the stock control arms. The instructions had pictures and not all the references in the text appeared to align with the pictures but if you do what the picture shows you will be able to install these in about an hour.

    Hop-B-Gone

    I really loved putting these control arms on my Stang, i did go to Ford and buy new bolts and nuts I really suggest doing so the rear bolts looked fine however the front bolts has some marks on the threads. The new arms fit perfectly and once I got driving I tried a few launches and it was amazing how much of a difference there was while i still have alot of wheel spin it stayed planted and gripped up much sooner. Cornering is much tighter and feels much more confident. I am very happy and really recommend these to anyone looking to get a great lower control arm with a lube point. Oh, that reminds me the energy suspension bushings that come with them are fantastic.

    J&M lower control arms

    If you want to improve the traction and handling without putting new springs and shocks on your car then i recommend the J&M extreme control arms. Why? because the amount of sway that the stock arms give is terrifying in the corners, and the amount of wheel hop is annoying while accelerating but with the J&M you have no sway, so much more confidence in the corners and no more wheel hop. Installation is easy part from the parking brake cable goes through the old control arms so disassemble takes some time. For guys who like to show their stang the corners at much higher speeds without spinning out you have to get the J&M Extreme!!!

    Great quality, great price, a must have for your S197!

    I have yet to upgrade any suspension component on my '11 GT and I bought these with one goal - eliminate wheel hop. The only reason I gave this a 4/5 for handling improvement is because wheel hop was significantly reduced, but not 100% eliminated. Granted, the Pirelli summer performance tires that came with the Brembo package have little tread and I was driving on moist roads in 30 degree weather. I experienced some wheel hop with those conditions when launching really hard from first. However, in those same conditions, I have yet to cause wheel hop when downshifting. Even for the "sweet spot" - shifting into 2nd and 40mph. It just bites the road. Cornering feels more planted and is much more confidence inspiring. It feels more predictable and more solid. I would recommend having a friend to help. Unless you're a beast and can position the rear axle with one hand, while guiding the bolt into the control arm lol. Other than that, I didn't run into any issues during the installation. Overall, a superb product!

    Fantastic Difference

    My GT500 has about 650 hp at the crank and I can hook it now in most of 1st, 2nd, and all of 3rd gear with the factory Goodyear tires. Unbelievable how much traction these give. Car also feels better; doesnt fishtail, shimmy, or skip around at all anymore. Install was a piece of cake. Don't waste your time with new tires until you install these. I can take off from a light and really get on it and not worry about spinning the tires, and when you corner the back end stays tight and hugs the curve. The effects of these arms on the car are absolutely fantastic.

    Much quicker launches, more control on your car, best upgrade yet!

    Everyone is a bit hesitant about replacing their LCAs because its just a piece of metal. I was on the same boat. The stock LCAs are great for a daily driver that babies his/her car. This upgrade is for those who go hard on their car and want to get the most out of it. After experiencing wheel hop, wheel spin at hard launches, and car bouncing on bumpy roads, I knew it was time to update that suspension. I ordered this LCAs and the next day they were at my house! Install took less than 30 min on a lift. First drive after the install and I was speechless. The car is planted on the road, no wheel hop, much stiffer, and a true street car. I feel much more confident driving my car in bumpy roads (even tho I don't like to) and now I'm able to do full throttle launches without spinning my tires. I highly recommend this LCAs.

    Solved one problem--created another

    The product did indeed eliminate "rear wheel hop" on my 2013 GT Mustang---but due to the "hardness' of the new control arm bushings---I now have a lot of "clunking" sounds coming from the drive line whenever I engage or dis-engage clutch or slow down in one of the higher gears. The J&M tech told me "this happens and it's due to the "back lash" or "end play" of the transmission. Had I known this advance---I would not have installed the control arms. I would strongly suggest researching other products if you are planning on replacing your lower control arms.

    Excellent product and easy install

    These J&M Ext LCAs do a great job of firming up the rear end when taking corners quick. I even notice a different when driving around town...much more solid in the back. Couple of pointers: 1) Arms shipped with stickers upside down...Make sure you triple check instructions and YouTube to make sure you get the offset correct. 2) The chassis is likely to shift during install. Use a strap with a racket to connect to the front bolt and rear chassis to bring the back end forward about 1/2" so the bolt will fit. 3) If you use new bolts (Ford recommends this, but is it not necessary), buy them online. I was totally fleeced by the dealership! 4) Buy some extra grease. I'm using Royal Purple, but a silicon based Marine Grease might be a better choice (but is VERY messy) 5) Torquing the bolts properly was the most difficult part. Getting enough leverage on the wrench is tough if you are using jack stands. Overall, great purchase. I appreciate the help from AM before the install and after the install.

    Jackstand Install

    The hardest thing with the entire install was getting the bolts torqued to 129 ft/lbs with the car at "ride height with a loaded suspension"(thanks to the guys at Tire Connection for use of their drive on lift). I found it easier to install the rear bolt first and then lift the differential with a jack and push the arm into the the front mount. I did the install using jack stands in my carport. The new arms are quiet and they give you a feeling of confidence while driving, unlike the soft feeling of the stock LCAs.

    What a Difference

    Very pleased with the results. I thought that lowering my car made a big difference in the corners until I had these babies installed. Huge difference going in and out of the corners and almost eliminated wheel hop. If I had known how well they work, I would have installed them when I lowered my car… maybe even before.

    2011 Mustang J&M Lower Control Arms

    These are improved compared to similar LCA a year or so ago. The old ones required assembling the roto-joint into the control arm, while the new model, it is pre-assembled. Thank you J&M. While it wasn't difficult to assemble the prior version, it was tricky and frustrating. The extreme control arms are quiet and smooth. I recommend them. 1 Hr + install time; not an afternoon
