Description
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 Upper Control Arm 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 Upper Control Arm in a black powder coat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

Polyurethane Bushings. This SR Performance control arm uses greaseable red polyurethane bushings 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 SR Performance Rear Upper Control Arm with red polyurethane bushing is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for all 2005 to 2010 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 Details

Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m going to be breaking down 2 rear upper control arm options both from SR Performance, I have with me their adjustable and non-adjustable option, both fitting the 2005-2010 Mustang. SR Performance is a company that’s been earning the respect and attention of a lot of Mustang enthusiasts lately, thanks to their budget friendly yet high quality performance and suspension components for all generation Mustangs. IF you’re not already watching this video on AmericanMuscle.com and you’d like to get back to our site, to read more about SR’s killer lineup, just click on the link below. The job of an upper control arm is to locate the axle side to side and prevent any pinion angle changes otherwise known as axle rap or axle windup. The factory stuff utilizes some pretty soft rubber bushings, which are notorious for flexing or distorting on hard launches, and aggressive cornering which can cause a bunch of wheel hop, and inconsistent handling. If you want to learn more about making your Mustang handle better and reducing your wheel hop, well, then you have to subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking the link below. Here you can check out numerous suspension overviews on all of our products, in addition to some pretty cool suspension builds that we’ve done to our own cars. Both of the options I’ve got on the table should do an excellent job of dropping your 60ft times, and reducing wheel hop and axle deflection, while increasing your rear end group by using superior materials compared to your factory control arms. The non adjustables here feature a strong TIG welded steel construction, along with these polyurethane bushings which are greasable. Poly bushings will do a great job of reducing any noise vibrations or harshness, that you otherwise might find on the spherical bearings found on the adjustable control arms here. In my opinion this is a great option for someone who enjoys doing some spirited driving with their Mustang, maybe just a few track days, and just wants to replace those soft rubber factory bushings in the control arm. The adjustable option from SR Performance is for someone who is serious about their track performance, and would ultimately like to dial in their optimum pinion angle settings. For only a few bucks more compared to the non-adjustables, you’re getting full on car adjustability, strong TIG welded steel construction, and these spherical hind joints here, which are going to take all the unwanted movement out of your Mustang’s rear end. Both options aren’t terribly difficult to install and should only take you a couple of hours in the garage using some pretty basic hand tools. Whenever you switch out your rear upper control arms I recommend getting your pinion angle checked out just to make sure everything’s within spec, especially if you decide to go with the adjustables. An incorrect pinion angle can cause unwanted traction, wear and tear on your pinion bearing and drive train vibrations. If you’re not quite sure which option would be best for your application, you should get in touch with one of our Mustang experts, you can call them at 855-422-7439, or shoot them an email at support@AmericanMuscle.com. So if you’re on the endless quest to make your Mustang perform better on the street, or at the track then you have to check out a set of these adjustable or non adjustable control arms from SR Performance, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Way better, much tighter rear end.

    The rear end on my 2007 GT was loose and squeaked like an old porch swing. I have 52k miles on it. I could feel the dislocation of the rear end on every corner, and I was afraid the axle was going to grenade itself from the tire hop. I installed this upper control arm, the SR performance lower control arms and the heavy duty panhard bar in about 5 hours. Took me a while because I couldn't find an 18mm gear wrench or an 18mm wobbler impact socket. You gonna need some torque to get the old bolts off. The two 18mm bolts are easier to reach if you use a long box end wrench to loosen them, and then a shorter gear wrench to get them out quickly. Grease this one AFTER its installed, otherwise the grease will blow the bushings out. There's a lot of room inside the tube for air/grease, so fill it up and makes sure it's lubed good. Silicone based grease for these. Mine came with black bushings, but they are polyurethane. Replacing the stock control arms and Panhard bar make a huge difference in the feel of the rear end. It's much tighter, corners without dislocating the axle and doesn't hop around on launches.

    Be prepared for the install

    First off buy new bolts for your brackets. I started accidently breaking the bolt under the rear seat. It was torqued super tight and flexed a lot. Overall it installed super easy removal of the stock part is the worst. I used all hand tools (also dont do) and it was miserable. Next time I'm just gonna have a shop do it.

    wheel hop gone

    The SR upper control arm install on my 2009 gt was pretty much straight forward. Did not like having to lower fuel tank but because of fitment there is no way around it. Quality and construction of the upper and lower control arms are excellent. They really do make a difference especially when coming off the line. The car hooks up so much better! I highly recommend this product.

    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. Rear end feels much better w/ these. No squeaks and feels more firm. 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.

    SR Performance Rear Upper Control Arm (05-10 All)

    Very good. Instruction can be a little,confusing on bolts and control arm and bracket. Other that I recommend following them the install recommends lowering the fuel tank to remove the bracket. You can't do the job without doing this but makes for a challenge for torquing the bolt for the control arm. Make sure not to put to much grease as this causes the two part bushing to push out. It you do this no problem stop and remove the grease fitting and press or us a rubber mallet to push the extra grease out and the bushing back in.

    works nice, went in exactly right.

    This piece went in exactly the way it was supposed to. Was a little cramped getting a wrench up in there, but it took me total about 2 hours. Took me longer to get the old one out that to put the new one in. I did not have to drop the gas tank either., had no problems doing it without dropping the tank. The two rear bolts holding the bracket to the car were very, very tight and took me a little bit to break loose, but once I did that, they came to easy. I notice that it 'plants ' itself on the road better and it is coupled with my new tubular lower control arms and works great. Product is a little on the pricy side, I think, but not rediculous and it does just what it says it will.

    Definite Difference!

    This along with the SR Performance lower control arms completely eliminated the wheel hop problem! Install was a bit tricky so I went to my local shop but otherwise well worth the any trouble!
