Improved handling

06 Mustang GT 57K.The install took about 1:30 for the right side and about 45 minutes for the left side. When removing the bolts for the steering gear make sure to remove the bolt not the nut on the bottom.

amazing

I installed these on my 06 gt and man is it a difference in handling. I can now do corners much faster and safer then the factory ones. The install wasnt too difficult. The worst part is dropping the rack

ball joint size I understand the ball joints are beefier, however, are they still compatible with the original gt ball joints? Better question is, will I be able to press in the steeda x5 or the moog k500112 into these lower control arms?

  • I don't know about the Steeda or Moog stuff that you mentioned, but I do know that I replaced my stock ones with these and they ROCK! If you drive on rough roads or go to the track like I do you need this upgrade. Far superior to the stock junk!!

Answer This Question

Heat Shield Required? Do these control arms need a heat shield? I have seen comments about the OEM control arms having a heat shield on them, and that these replacements do not come with one.

    Improved handling

    06 Mustang GT 57K.The install took about 1:30 for the right side and about 45 minutes for the left side. When removing the bolts for the steering gear make sure to remove the bolt not the nut on the bottom. The nut is spot WELDED in. I've read reviews saying that they had a "heat shield" on their LCA's, my old factory LCA's didnt come with a heat shield. So no need to install a heat shield. Also, these look exactly like the originals. But the difference is these use stronger stamped metal and better ball joints. Ford has a TSB for 2005-2006 mustangs ball joints. When I removed the right side you could turn it like a door nob (definitely not good). My car is at 57K, the ball joints should have lasted a lot longer. These LCA tightened up the front end and took away a clung sound when my car would go over bumps. The instructions on AM were straight forward and follow them, they are to the point. Thanks AM!

    amazing

    I installed these on my 06 gt and man is it a difference in handling. I can now do corners much faster and safer then the factory ones. The install wasnt too difficult. The worst part is dropping the rack and pinion to get to the two bolts on the control arm. Other then that it took me about 45 mins to do both sides.

    Amazing!!

    Great product. Ford will charge you $316.99 per arm. This is a much better deal for much less! They have a slightly larger ball joint. If you need a new control arm this is the way to go. I checked with AM and Ford racing and this Will fit V6 mustangs. This is a great product!!

    Good replacment for OE

    Good and inexpensive replacement for OE control arms. I drifted into a curb and had to replace these. Replacing them also fixed a ticking sound I had when slowly turning left, I think it was in the ball joint. However, I didn't notice a big handling difference.

    v6 replacement

    What can i say, another great product from American Muscle, fast shipping, recieved in three days, other reviewers mentioned removal of rack and pinion bolts to crossmember, I was doing a bit more and replaced inner and outer tie rods, by removing the inner tie rod exposes the stubborn bolt that people speak of and made install a breeze. really improved handling. great bang for the buck, I even did the same job for a friend..

    Nice upgrade

    I put these on my '06 GT after wearing out the factory ball joints at the road course. I choose them due to higher load capacity over stock replacements, and my car has Roush supercharger, so I thought it was a wise upgrade with the added front end weight.

    New frt control arms on the V6

    At about 100k on my 05 V6 daily driver this was the perfect replacement part. Its new life for the frt end as it really tightened the frt end back up like it should be. Thanks once again am for a great price on the parts i needed (and the ones i just wanted). Not too bad of a install, took me a long afternoon taking my time. The steering rack is a challenge. I found out the hard way ( with my impact gun) the nuts are spot welded under the rack. I`ll have to fab some brackets to mount the heat shields, not sure why they dont come with them. Other than the heat shield brackets they are a exact replacement and a real bargain for new arms, bushings and ball joints. I`m real happy with the parts. Great to have you on the forums, you guys (and gals) rock !!!

    Winter Project

    Over the winter I updated all the suspension parts on my 07 GT. Originally I put in Eiboch springs with stock parts. After a few seasons of dirving camber had become an issue. As winter happened it became the project. Installed: 1. Koni SRT struts, shocks - huge improvement on ride. 2. Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arms - easy install, added improvement over old stuff. 3. Ford Racing Jonce Bumpers - In there doing the parts replaced all with new 4. Ford Racing upper strut mount - smooth steering, no noise 5. Eibach camber bolts - easy install. Took car to the best alingment guy in the valley...made setting alignment super easy. Alingment guys feedback...." I have done quite a few mustangs for the guys in the valley, I have to say yours is the nicest riding one!" Thanks AM!!

    good product

    Over all it is a good product. Just make sure that the took-off OEM control arm have a cover in one end. You can choose to remove the cover and put it on the new control arm
