why would u want to have the control arms to be adjustable compaired to nonadjustable?

02stang3800 Year: 2002 Model: V6

  • If you lower or raise the rear of your car significantly, you will change the pinion angle of the rear end(the angle that the rear end is in related to the transmission). If the angle is too sever, it may cause vibration, premature wear on the u-joints or worse. By using the adjustable control arms, you can maintain the correct pinion angle to prevent these issues. Also, the geometry of the rear end is critical for correct weight transfer at launch when racing and small adjustments here and there can improve your launch grip (if you know what your doing) and a tenth here and there is a lot to a racer.

can this also raise or lower the rear of the car change the rear wheel gap

redfoxbody Year: 1987 Model: GT

  • No they are mostly used to replace the stock flimsy parts that flex and cause wheel hop at the track, they are also used to correct the rear axle's pinion angle to achieve better traction. If you want to change ride height then either use lowering springs to lower the car, or add a set of adjustable spring perch lower control arms to raise or lower the rear of the car but the best way to do all of this front/back and keep good ride quality is to go with a set of coilovers.
