Review & Installation Video

Hey I’m Justin with, and I’m taking a closer look at two products from SR Performance, I have with me their adjustable and non-adjustable rear lower control arms, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. SR Performance has taken the Mustang world by storm lately with their wide variety of high quality performance and suspension components with prices that should fit nicely into just about anyone’s budget. And if you want to find out more about SR Performance and what products they offer for your ride, just click the link below to head back to our site and see for yourself. Alright, so SR Performance just released their two rear lower control arm options for the S197, one features full adjustability while the other does not. Both options feature strong TIG welded tubular steel, along with this nice gloss black powder coating. They do feature greasable polyurethane bushings on both, with the exception of these spherical heim joints, located on the adjustables. If you’re not quite sure what option might work best for you, don’t hesitate to ask our award winning customer service team what they think, email them at, or give them a call at 1-855-422-7439. Even though the control arms are slightly different by design, to reduce your Mustangs wheel hop and improve your traction off the line. Plain and simply, they do this by using a superior material, permabushings, and in the case of the adjustables here, they allow you to dial in your optimal alignment settings and pinion angle, especially important if you’ve lowered your ride, and I’d say that would be the main benefit of going with the adjustables, if you want to have to luxury of really fine tuning your accessories to achieve the best 60ft times possible, the adjustables would certainly be the way to go. But if you’re just looking to hook up better and reduce wheel hop by replacing those stock control arms, and soft rubber factory bushings, the non-adjustables from SR would certainly be a low cost options which would get the job done. Both options are relatively easy installs that should only take you 2 hours from start to finish using basic hand tools, with a little bit more time needed for fine tuning the adjustables. So if you’re looking to improve your traction off the line and reduce wheel hop in the process, then you have to check out these two options from SR Performance, right here at and for more product overviews from SR Performance and many other products, go ahead and subscribe to our YouTube channel already, just maneuver that mouse down below or up in the corner and click away. In the meantime that’ll do it from me and we’ll see you next time.

Improves Traction. Everyone knows that you're going nowhere fast if you can't hook up off the line. That's why SR Performance designed their Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms to provide better traction, quicker launches, less wheel hop and as an added bonus, improved 60ft times.

Tubular Steel Construction. Made in the USA from TIG-welded heavy duty 1.5" steel tubing for superior strength, SR Performance completes their Rear Lower Control Arms with a black powdercoat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

Polyurethane Bushings. These SR Performance Control Arms use greasable black polyurethane bushings on both the chassis and axle side, which are far superior to the factory rubber bushings. The result is great traction during straight-line acceleration and predictable grip during hard cornering.

Application. This set of two SR Performance Rear Lower Control Arms with Black Polyurethane Bushings are designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

What is the difference between polyurethane and urethane bushings? Which is better?


  • Polyurethane and urethane are usually the same thing when it comes to bushing, I believe.

Can you reuse the nuts and bolts or are they a one time use?


  • Yes, you can reuse the factory bolts and nuts....just make sure to keep them separated because one is for the front and the other is for the back

will these work with loweing springs i wanna know if these will work with ford racing lowering springs on my 2010 gt


  • Yes. These LCAs are the same length as the stock arms. If your car is currently lowered, be sure to check the side to side axle placement, as the rear housing will shift to one side when the car is lowered. The amount of shift is dependent on the distance the car has been lowered. If a correction is required, an adjustable Panhard bar (AKA as track bar), will allow you to re-center the third member.

Every time I hit a bump in the road it sounds like something is loose in the trunk. I check the trunk and every thing is secure. I recently replaced my tires and the service guy at belle tire said he thinks it might be the bushing in the lower control arms are worn out. My mustang only has 26,000 miles . Do you think this maybe causing the rattle.


  • It is quite possible. The factory control arms aren't very durable and they do very little to keep the tires planted to the ground during wot and launches. If you are asking if these upgraded control arms are causing te noise them yes it's probably them. Whenever you add a part with performance in mind you are gonna lose comfortability and quietness so yes it probably are these that are causing the noise. I had the SR performance swaybars, end links, control arms (upper and lower) panhard bar, lowering springs, and Koni shocks and struts. My car squeaked whenever I drove over a pebble, that being said my 60ft time was almost 1.9 seconds before I added all of the suspension mods. It was a 1.59 by the time I was done giving me a 12.6 1/4 mile time with some engine work as well.

    Doesn't Last

    I like many thought these were great when I 1st received them. Now a little over a year later I've had to replace them twice. Last time was only after 4 months. Bushings in these don't last. This is in a fairly stock GT daily driver that for the most part is babied and only occasionally driven on weekends. Do yourself a favor and get from a known brand. I replaced with Ford Racing control arms myself. American Muscle is great as always and both times stepped up to the plate to replace these but I'll never order anything SR again.

    Great Product, does what it claims.

    Good quality build. Product came in well packaged. Only issue was they are not made in mirror image (according to sales rep), so the grease valves were upside-down on the driver side. Not a big deal, just had to get a flexible hose for the grease gun. Installation was relatively easy. Putting grease on the outside of the bushing made installation easier, and it was also recommended. These LCA are lighter by comparison, which is also a plus. In terms of performance, they do what they are supposed to do. I did NOT have a wheel hop issue to begin with, so I got them mostly to stop the deflection of the original LCA/bushings for faster acceleration. In terms of performance my 0-60 acceleration time decreased by 0.2 seconds with /- 80 consistency. That is very impressive for a mod that does not add any power to the engine. It definitely lessens wheel spin so the tires are able to stay planted better as compared to the original LCAs. All in all, it was well worth the money.

    Squeak is gone but disappointment is not...

    I ordered these to get rid of the known squeaking issue on my S197. My car would squeak when I was backing out of my driveway after coming to a stop and then move forward as the body flexed. It would also squeak when hitting slight bumps in the road and also between hard shifts. All of that is gone now! Total install time was about an hour and a half at a leisurely pace. The good...these are very sturdy lower control arms with grease zerks. They totally eliminated any squeaking and the car feels more firm with slightly improved handling. The polyurethane on the ends of the arms that protects the bushings also prevents squeaking like I had before. The bad...the grease zerks that were install on these are CHEAP. One of them broke off during the install as I used a hammer and piece of wood on the shaft near the zerk to tap the lower control arm into place. The fitment of these seems off as the polyurethane that protects the bushings and ends of the LCA's makes it much wider than OE parts. You will need some grease or lube on these areas to help slide them into place. I had my car with jack stands under the axle and had to use a jack to press these into place and then pound with a hammer for a proper fit. The polyurethane is necessary however since that is where the squeak originates. I could see on my old LCA's where there was metal on metal between the ends of the arms and the mounting brackets. Overall I would recommend these as they definitely eliminated the squeaking coming from my car and firmed it up a little in the process, but I am also disappointed in the quality of the grease zerks. For a part that is over $100 I would expect that a company spends a couple of bucks to install quality zerks but I will be doing that on my own. In the past I've never had to think twice about purchasing an SR Performance part as I've heard nothing but good reviews but this experience now has me wary for any future purchases. I would strongly recommend replacing the grease zerks before attempting an install of these LCA's if you intend to grease them down the road.

    Good Product - Install was kinda rough

    The SR Performance Control Arms are great, I felt a difference from the first hard acceleration, my wheel hop has been completely eliminated. The install was the only problem I had, and it was only due to the factory bolt that WOULD NOT come out of the factory control arm. I ended up having to use a Sawzall to cut through the bolt in two places...

    Upgrade your suspension

    Got this done along with several other suspension mods so I can't objectively say how much this one particular part played a role but guys at the shop seemed impressed with them. With these the rear end feels more planted and no hops. These along with other suspension mods made my driving experience so much better. Never realized what an upgrade over stock suspension would do but it feels like an entirely new car. Much more responsive and no more plowing through turns. Full suspension upgrades included... 1. GT500 Strut mounts 2. Koni struts/shocks 3. SR front/rear sway bars 4. JM adjustable panhard bar 5. SR Bumpsteer 5. SR Rear Upper/Lower control arms 6. Ford Racing front control arms 7. Ford Racing Lowering Springs So for all practical purposes a new upgraded suspension. Bought everything gradually over the course of the winter and I recommend to anyone to do something similar. You won't be disappointed.

    Wheel hop

    Took it to the shop to get installed, its just to hot in AL right now to do anything, cost was about 130 and it didnt take long. I have a 2010 gt which had terrible wheel, like a jake hammer going off in your trunk when heating the tires up. After install i tested them with a hard launch. There still was wheel hop but nowhere near as bad...i wasnt expecting for total hop elimination so its all good. Going to get the upper control arms and a few other suspension mods to help out. Fast delivery as always and good customer service with AM. Thank you.

    Just Average

    First of all they come with black bushings now. Not a big deal. OTOH they were fairly difficult to install. The rears slipped in easily. The fronts were a different story. I had to bend both mounts out a bit to get the front end to slip in place. I was hoping they would eliminate the pretty bad wheel hop I was having with my daily driver tires - 305/45-18 Nitto 555Rs. I still get a little wheel hop. Much better than the stock set up though. My old '89 GT never had any wheel hop issues.

    Good product for the price

    Happy with the product, was easy to install, took about 2 hours total with a help from a friend. Be sure to grease the outside of the bushing to avoid any serious rubbing. Rear end deffinately feels stiffer when accelerating but feels the same wen turning compared to the stock control arms. These aftermarket parts are a bit lighter which helps those trying to get a better time down the track. Not a night and day kind of change for your mustang but absolutely an improvement.
