Description
Improves Traction. If you can't "hook up" you are going nowhere fast. That is why QA1 designed their Rear Upper Control Arms to be adjustable so you can dial in your Mustangs suspension to eliminate excessive wheel hop, improve traction, and decrease your 60ft. times. Tubular Steel Construction. QA1 Rear Upper Control Arms are constructed from 1-1/4" diameter, 0.120" wall steel tubing for light weight and superior strength. Graphite impregnated polyurethane differential bushings are included to replace the soft stock OE rubber bushings.

On Car Adjustable. The QA1 Rear Upper Control Arms are designed to be adjusted without removing the arms from the car. Simply loosen the jam nuts and set the pinion angle as desired for improved traction and better handling.

Application. These QA1 Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arms are designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for the 1979 to 2004 Mustangs with a solid rear axle, not intended for use on 1999-2004 SVT Cobra's with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS).

are adjustable control arms better than fixed? If yes may you please explain why?

  • Depends on what your mustang is used for, daily driver, fixed would be better in the end. If you take your car to the track once in a while you might see better numbers with these control arms.

  • Your car won't reach anyway really, from what i know these adjustable control arms are used for better launches. Like at a track for instance, when u launch your rear end sinks and your front end lifts, when that happens the angle of your driveshaft into your rearend changes. Most people try to set this up so when the front end raises they try to acheive basically a straight line from tranny to diff.

    I bought these because I have my 2002 GT lowered approximately 4 inches on Bilstein coil-overs in the front, and than H&R springs with Bilstein shocks in the rear with adjustable lower control arms, and was experiencing some drive line vibration since my angle was thrown off. Also my UCA bushings were making all kinds of racket because they were shot. I embarked on the job thinking it would be a quick in and out procedure. Not quite. The bushings in the axle were a nightmare to remove. I ended up having to take a 3/8's drill bit and having to drill out the bushings until they were nothing but powder on my garage floor, than having to clean out the inner part of their housings with a metal wire drill attachment. Once the bushings were out, the new ones slipped in fairly easy, and adjusting the drive line angle was a breeze. First test drive with the new ones on made the whole project worth it though. Completely transformed the way the car felt. No noise, much more sound feeling, and puts down the grip much more efficiently. These are completely worth the project, just be ready for a full day if not two if your bushings are as difficult as mine were.

    QA1 sticker in box, but the arm says edlebrock? No big deal.... The old was a pain to remove, old bushings stuck in the mount. These arms being adjustable makes sense, but no direction in how to adjust them, still getting noise (and i replaced lowers too). Seems non adjustable uca's would have worked easy, maybe easier! They have a grease fitting, good idea, look good, lightweight.. Ended up adjusting them about 5 times before pinion angle good and no noise.

    Adjustable is the way to go!

    I recommend getting these if you have a lowered stang and much more solid then stock uppers.
