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 ...

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.

Looking to replace the front lower control arms since they're going bad after 90,000 miles. Are these sold individually or as a set of two?

    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..

    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

    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!!

    No more clunking front end

    I bought my '08 Mustang last year and noticed some clunking noises from the front suspension when I went over speed bumps and when making tight turns to park or back out of parking spaces. I did some research and found out that the stock ball joints on the lower control arms were prone to failure and that these Ford Racing control arms were the solution. I decided to order these and within a week they arrived. Good thing because the clunking on my car got progressively worse. It really wasn't drivable by that time. Got the new control arms installed by my buddy at the shop and installation took roughly 4 hours. The stock ball joints were only a little worn. Not as bad as I thought. My buddy told me the control arms were actually loose and that's what made the clunking worse. Whoever owned this Mustang before me apparently did(or a shop did) something to the front suspension and didn't know what he was doing and didn't tighten the bolts right. Well at least I upgraded the control arms now and my front end is super quiet. I'm extremely satisfied with them. The front feels tight now and it doesn't feel like my whole front suspension is going to fall apart when I run over a pebble. I definitely recommend the Ford Racing control arms to everyone who's having a clunky front end issue.
