    Features & Details

    • Upgrade LCA Kit
    • Better Traction
    • Less Wheel Hop
    • Firmer Launches
    • Increased Bushing Durometer
    • Direct Replacement
    • Fits All 2005-2014 Mustangs
    Improve Traction. If you're not "hooking up" off the line, then a set of Ford Racing Lower Control Arms will certainly help. These lower control arms will eliminate wheel hop and improve traction, keeping your Mustang's rear end planted for firmer consistent launches.

    GT500 Original Equipment. These Ford Racing Lower Control Arms are the same exact ones found as standard original equipment on the 2007-2014 Shelby GT500, 2013-2014 Mustang GT with Track Pack and 2011-2014 Mustang GT with manual transmission.

    Durable, Firmer Bushings. These Lower Control Arms resemble the stock GT control arms in appearance only. These Ford Racing Control Arms come with higher durometer (harder) bushings that are firmer and much more durable over the stock standard bushings.

    Application. These Ford Racing Rear Lower Control Arms are designed as a direct bolt on replacement for 2005 to 2014 V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby Mustangs.

    Hi, what are these bushings made from?

    SamuelE

    • These will be constructed of rubber that is stiffer rubber than stock.

    I’m buying these to stop the rear wheel hop on my GT when accelerating quickly. Will they make the ride any stiffer or worse, if so what will I notice? This is my daily driver.

    When I install these, will I want to put a silicone-based grease on the bushings? (I'm assuming they are rubber?)

    Austin

    • I would recommend High Temp Molly grease, a white lithium grease will destroy the bushing. These are a stiffer rubber bushing compared to the stock bushings.

    My car is lowered 1.5" with the K-Springs. Will these Ford Racing Lower Control Arms work with relocation brackets and will the pinion angle be affected?

    Buchjr1

    • The Ford Racing Rear Lower Control Arms will work just fine with the K springs and the relocation brackets. The pinion angle should not be affected by this, but I would recommend checking after installation.

      Good for what they are

      These must have been OEM for convertibles, since they look exactly like the ones that came off my 2005 GT Convertible. The part numbers are the same. It's not hard to install these, you should be able to do this within an hour in your driveway. I did the replacement in roughly 30 minutes. There are many reviews here that tout "improved handling" or "better launches" or "less wheel hop". To be honest, I didn't notice any difference after replacing these control arms. Not to worry though, I figured after 13 years on the OEM ones the rubber was worn out and required a change - and these fit the bill for replacement and the price was right. Overall I'm satisfied.

      I’m upset!

      These are so good I’m mad that I didn’t put them on any of the other ponies I’ve had. It adds a whole new launch dynamic to the car! If you were thinking about buying them do it!!

      Less wheel hop and better feel on the road

      What difference night and day.. in terms of handling and launching the car off the line. And installation was a breeze., it took me just 15 minutes on a lift. I would definitely recommend this item along with a decent tire.

      Got grip

      First side went in easy. Don’t tighten up first side too much the axle will shift causing the other side to not line up. Once installed the rear felt a lot tighter and seemed to hook up better

      Ford Racing Rear Lower Control Arms

      This was an easy install. Make sure that you torque the bolts up fully to spec. My first pass I tightened them to what I though would be about right - they creaked. I re-tightened with a torque wrench to the correct 129ft/lb, and all is great. I am not sure how they contribute because I did the sway bar bushes, sway bar end links, and rear shocks at the same time. The back end is now solid and predictable.

      Easy to install.

      My car developed a very annoying squeak that would come and go. My lower control arms had a good bit of salt corrosion so I replaced them with a pair of the Ford Performance control arms in less than an hour and my problem was solved. They appeared to be a much higher quality than my factory originals.

      Perfect fit - NO MORE SQUEAK!

      I purchased these control arms because I was getting an absolutely ungodly squeak from the rear end of my Mustang every time I hit a bump, accelerated, or braked hard. It was driving me nuts and made my entire car sound like a jalopy. I took it to a mechanic and he basically said he had no idea what it was. I got under the car and sprayed down different components with WD40, and while this was not a permanent fix, it helped me to identify that the worn out bushings in the lower control arms were the problem. I ordered this particular set of lower control arms because the price was very reasonable, and because they were Ford factory products. I'm not sure what makes them a "performance" lower control arm, because upon thorough examination, they appear to be exact replacements for the factory control arms. Install was very easy. I just put the car on jackstands, and was able to complete both sides within an hour or so. I used a heavy amount of silicone paste on the bolts and bushings. This paste will not destroy rubber bushings, but I figured that it would help with the squeak. One thing I really liked about these control arms is that they have the slots cut out in the middle of the arm, so you can replace the brake cable right where it was supposed to be from the factory. You don't have to rig something up like you would with a BBK control arm. That was nice because I like everything to be factory, because when you start rigging stuff up you start running into problems. I'm proud to say that a week later, I have yet to hear any form of squeak from the rear end. It's completely silent. I'm not sure if hook up is any improved from the old arms. It's definitely a lot better, but I'm not sure if that's because these are performance arms or just because the bushings are solid. Either way, for the price I am very happy with this purchase and it has definitely made my Mustang a lot more enjoyable to drive

      I like real Ford parts

      These are exact real Ford parts. Top quality. I did paint them as the paint was chipped in spots. The original ones the front bushings broke and walked so the metal would rub against the mount. I found nylon washers they could protect this, if these suffer the in the same way.

      Disappointed with these

      I bought these because they were a Ford product, I had installed them back in 2015, In July of 2016 began hearing my car to make a rattle noise like something was loose in the back which can really get to you if you don't have your music turned up, It was until I took it into a shop they discovered the noise was coming from these control arms. My mustang is my daily driver so I'm not sure if its what caused them to wear out so quickly. I didn't feel a difference with the handling, and now I must replace them.
