    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.

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

            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.

            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.

            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.

            These replaced the old rusted stock control arms. Man just really tightened up the rear end. Look nice too. I read that there are problems with durability so time will tell.

            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
