Perfect Replacement

When my bushing blew out on my GT500 I replaced the stock control arms with these. I got a great price through American Muscle and they work great!

GT 500 Lower control arms

Had a lot of shaking in steering wheel when braking. Cause was loose ball joints. Replaced the control arms and drives like new.

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.

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?

Flyer01

  • 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!!

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?

    Eh.

    Appear to be the exact same arms as the stock '09 GT arms I took off... No noticeable increase in handling even though my ball joints were so shot that the car could not be aligned. My car needed it done, but it wasn't so much as an improvement as routine maintenance in my opinion.

    Waaaaay better then Stock

    My front end was toast after 55,000 miles on rough California roads. So I bought these upgraded lower control arms and they worked perfectly. Got rid of all of my front end clunking noises and really tightened up the front end handling. These are not easy to install unless you have some mechanical skills so don't do it unless you can handle taking apart the steering linkage and the lower front end components. Having said that these are the way to go once you wear out the stock junk.

    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
