      • Upgrade LCA Kit
      • Better Traction
      • Less Wheel Hop
      • Firmer Launches

      • 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.

        Stock upgrade

        Despite having lowered the car 1/2 “ with some Roush springs, these ford performance control arms provide a better ride than the stock arms.

        5 2008 GT - Derek08GTCS Installation Time: Afternoon

        No more annoying squeak.

        These are exactly the same as what was on my ‘07 GTCS convertible. The rubber wears out and then you get play or in my case the rubber collapsed and cause metal against metal when there was any articulation. Perfect fit easy install.

        They remain as Originals, as if you have not changed them because the car looks new.

        5 2007 GT - Rich42 Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Easy upgrade with instant results

        Very straightforward job that can easily be done in a garage or driveways. Do one side at a time so the rear axle doesn’t move too much more. Be prepared as the axle willl shift about 1.5 inches so you have to get creative with pushing it back while trying to line up the hole with the control arm and sliding the bolt through. The ride is noticeably stiffer. After 159,000 miles my stock bushings were shot and this was such a simple fix upgrade I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner! Total job took me 64 minutes from start to finish, which includes me pulling out tools through putting them all away.

        Great upgrade

        Changed from an aftermarket race setup back to this and these are much better than OE for wheel hop. Great option for replacing or upgrading from factory arms.

        5 2005 GT - MrKABC Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        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 have a 2005 gt convertible. I just looked at my lcas and they look identical to these. Do you know if ford made ones that look similar to these?

      so if i have a 2013 gt manual i do not need these correct ?

      • That is correct. All 2011-2014 Mustang GT models equipped with the manual transmission included these control arms from the factory.

      Will these improve "wheel hop" on a v6? Have a 2005 V6. The rear end gets skiddish when accelerating over bumps or surface irregularities. The traction control comes on and the interruption due to wheel hop is quite disconcerning. Will these help to mitigate this significantly? 3 answers
