    OPR's passenger side front lower control arm that we're taking a quick look at today is going to be a good option for any Mustang owner out there that might be in need of a new control arm after years of abuse. [In] terms of the installation here, expect a light to a moderate two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here and about a two-hour job. So these aren't going to be geared towards any type of performance benefit, as they're going to be fixed and nonadjustable, and a factory replacement for a broken one. If you're lowered or you're thinking about lowering your Mustang down the road, I definitely suggest checking out some of the options from QA1. Now, some of the telltale signs of failing or just a worn-out control arm would be similar to a bad sway bar end link. So you'd be feeling a little bit of a loose steering wheel, lots of noise, and some clunking. So OPR's offering here is going to be just like your factory lower control arm with ball joint, and it's manufactured from a high-strength steel with a black oxidized finish. Now, this front lower control arm will feature a preinstalled ball joint, as well as a rubber bushing, as well as being greaseable, which is great. Because they're not sealed components, and they can be maintained over the course of your car's life. But in terms of the pricing here, guys, expect to be spending around $100 per side for these replacements, which will likely cost considerably less than the factory equipment. So if you're looking for something a little bit more performance-oriented, QA1 has an adjustable set that is going to weigh less. But expect to be spending about $220 to $300 on those. Now, switching gears to the installation, like I said a little bit earlier, you're going to be looking at a moderate two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about a two-hour job. Now, looking ahead, I'd just make sure to have a full socket set, a jack, and jack stands. So getting started, you're going to want to get your car off the ground, pull your front wheels and tires, unbolt your calipers and ABS lines if equipped. You can then remove your sway bar end links and bushings. Then, get your floor jack under one of the control arms in order to support that.You're going to want to jack that up slightly in order to get the load off of the strut and the spindle. Once you're done there, remove the cotter pin and the castle nut on the ball joint. You then loosen the castle nut just enough to separate it from the ball joint, and then remove the castle nut itself. Now, you'll then need to loosen and remove the two bolts that are retaining the strut to the spindle, then slowly lower that jack down. So after that, guys, simply repeat the process on the opposite side. Then, you can begin getting your new equipment in place. So that's more or less the difficult part here, and your new lower control arm assemblies are going to be reinstalling in the reverse order. So that's going to wrap up my quick review of OPR's passenger side front lower control arm and ball joint assembly, fitting your '94 through '04 Mustang, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

            Lower control arm assembly replacement

            Takes some elbow grease and you have to be creative in what your doing but I did it on a lift In the shop lowering the car on to a jack to compress the spring and it worked out great. You have to use hammers and wale on it to get in to place but it works out great.

            Replaced left and right, dealing with the spring is a pain. Go into it with a plan. Oem this part is something like $200 while this does the same thing. would recommend if your hearing road noise. Full day on jackstands

            Great Product and amazing price!

            My local mechanic wanted to charge me $350 per side to have new front control arms installed. I bought the OPR front control arms for both sides and was able to install them in a few hours saving myself over $500. they came packaged well and arrived in three days from the time I ordered them. You can't really ask for much more than that. I drive a 2001 Bullitt and I could tell the control arms a ball joints were getting a little worn with all of the bounce on the road and the squeaking over speed bumps. you dont want a beautiful car like that to turn heads because its squeaky and they think something is wrong, you want to turn heads because the car sounds amazing and drives like a dream. These are a vital part of any suspension upgrade and basic vehicle maintenance. dont overlook things like this when upgrading your suspension if you want to get the most out of it.

            Shiny Replacement

            They were super shiny! Looked great compared to the rest of the 01 I am restoring. The fact it has ball joint in it already saves time and money. I had to replace my stock one because car is salvaged and had been in accident. I replaced both sides.
