      Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arms for '05 to 2009 V6s, '05 to 2010 GTs, and 2007 to 2009 GT500s. The Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arms are going to be for anyone that's looking to solve some of the common ball joint issues and improve a little bit of handling while they're at it and all without changing the ride quality too much or having to drop some big bucks for some of the more aggressive aftermarket options.These arms from Ford Racing are original equipment for the GT500s of this year range, but they're going to be an upgrade for the GTs and V6s so these guys are going to gain some handling benefits from a higher quality option that is still technically in the OE field. Putting the GT500s aside since these are going to be a stock replacement for those guys that need a regular maintenance replacement, the stock ball joints in the older S197s are prone to failure. The biggest and most complained about issue that this causes is the infamous squeak and the noises during road travel, but it's also going to give you some sloppy front end handling at the same time. So these control arms do look like the factory arms, but the ball joints are going to be an upgrade. They're low friction ball joints with an upgraded inner bushing. Now that may not sound like a whole lot to you, but it does translate to a largely improved impact harshness and that means a better ride quality. So ultimately you can net some handling benefits without gaining any NVH and it doesn't get much better than that.So more improved handling is going to come from the fact that Ford Racing also uses a better stamp steel on these arms than on the factory arms. The heavy-duty steel's going to be stronger which is going to help with handling. The GT500 was built as more of a high-performance platform than the GTs and V6s of this year so upgrading the GT500 components will help you got some better driving performance out of your car. So these are listed as being a direct fit upgrade for '05 to '09 V6s and 2005 to 2010 GTs, but you should check your production date because these are for the cars that specifically have 18mm ball joint shafts. So that's all of you '05 to '09 V6s that were built on or before 2/26 '09 and the '05 to '10 GTs that were built on or before August 3rd of '09, and of course all of the '07 to '09 GT500s no matter what the production date is.As far as price, these lower control arms are going to cost just over 300 bucks. These are less expensive than other more aggressive aftermarket options, they're about half the price, but they do cost a little bit more than the factory replacements do of course. The factory replacements aren't going to have upgraded components and these are a little bit more expensive, but the improvements and handling and performance pays off, at least in my opinion.So the install here isn't too difficult, but I am going to call it a three out of three wrenches and you can expect the install to take about two hours. You need a handful of different tools for this install and a way to get the car in the air so you can work under it. Just giving a general overview here, but the stock front lower arms obviously need to be removed so you're looking at removing the steering knuckle pinch bolt, separating the steering knuckle from the ball joint and the control arm, and removing the forward pivot bolt. To get the lower control arm out the strut end brake assembly will need to be held out of the way.The new lower control arm is best installed by getting the pivot point in first and then get the ball joint into the steering knuckle. Then the rear mounted bolts come next and then you tighten everything down to spec with a torque wrench. Both sides install the same way and as always when you do suspension upgrades or replacements it's always a good idea to get a fresh alignment after the install.Wrapping things up here, the Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arms are a factory replacement for GT500s, but they're an upgrade for the V6 and the GT so they're going to give some nice performance and ride quality upgrades over the factory units. They have upgraded ball joints, they're made from heavy-duty steel so they're both stronger and better performing. They're a good option if you're looking to upgrade or if you're just looking to fix some high-mileage ball joints and you can check them out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
