What's up guys? I am Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and welcome to my complete breakdown of the RTR Tactical Performance Rear Adjustable Upper Control Arm and Mount fitting your '11 to'14 Mustang. Your rear upper control arm is just one of three links in your S197's rear suspension, the lower control arms being the other two, and as you might expect, is very important when it comes to both your traction and your handling performance, but even more important when it comes to adjusting your instant center and also your pinging angle, especially for those of you out there with lowered Mustangs and one-piece drive shafts. Vaughn and his team at RTR took a tactical approach when it came to designing and developing an adjustable rear upper control arm that will help you and your Mustang no matter what the situation. Whether you're trying to drop the 60-foot times at the drag strip or whether you are trying to put that power down coming out of turns on the back roads or at the race track itself. Now the result is this very easy-to-adjust upper control arm while on the car, it's going to eliminate any wheel hop and excess movement of the rear axle itself by eliminating those soft rubber factory bushings that do a great job of soaking up all the road noise and vibration but leave a lot to be desired when it comes to all out performance. But without a doubt the star of the tactical performance adjustable rear upper control arm here has to be the maxi bushing that is pressed into the forged end. Now this thing is actually going to give you all of the performance of a spherical bearing or a rod end joint without the excess of noise vibration or harshness or NVH as it's often called. Another nice thing about these bushings is that they are completely maintenance-free, meaning you're never going to have to grease it throughout its lifespan. Getting the upper installed is a little bit more involved compared to those lowers mainly due to the fact that you have to access a pretty big bolt underneath the rear seat in addition to the work you need to do underneath the car. So of course, make sure you have your jack and jack stands ready and leave yourself a couple of hours from start to finish. As always guys, don't forget to reach out to a Mustang expert anytime if you should have any questions. So if you guys are really looking to lock down that rear axle, eliminate any wheel hop, improve your traction, and have the ability to really adjust that pinion angle, then you want to check out the RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arm here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improves Traction. Everyone knows that you're going nowhere fast if you can't "hook up" off the line, that's why RTR designed their Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arm to provide better traction, quicker launches, and to eliminate dreaded "wheel hop".

On Car Adjustable. The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Upper Control Arm is on-car single adjustable, thanks to the spherical rod end bearing, allowing you to dial in your suspensions settings "on-the-fly" to be sure you go straight down the track every time.

Superior Construction. Manufactured from steel tubing for superior strength, this RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Upper control arm features a one piece saddle style axle housing for additional rigidity and is completed in a durable gray powder coat finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance. 

Forged Rod Ends. The forged rod end included with this adjustable RTR Tactical Performance Upper Control Arm is specifically engineered to house the patented MAX-C bushings which allows for maximum articulation, strength and durability of the bushing material.

Max-C Bushings. MAX-C (Multi Axial Composite) bushings are made from a dual-durometer synthetic elastomer with a unique non-bonded bushing design that allows the inner reinforcement sleeve to redistribute loads throughout the cushion and bearing allowing for freedom of articulation while still reducing deflection for improved handling predictability.

Grease Free Technology. The included Max-C bushings feature "Grease Free Technology" this is a process where a PTFE inner lining is bonded to the inner bore of the bushing during the casting process. The PTFE lining reduces friction, minimizes wear and eliminates noise. Because of this there is no need to lubricate the bushings during installation making these bushings grease and maintenance free.

Application. This RTR Tactical Performance On-car Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arm is designed to fit all 2011-2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models perfectly. Sold individually.

What is the best pinion angle for the RTR Upper Control Arm with the MAX-C Bushing. (-2) ? I have the 2013 GT Mustang, stock Springs.

COBRA

  • There is no set Pinion angle for each setup. The pinion angle will be different with every installation and cannot be determined until you install this Control Arm on your car.

    Quality part

    I had a driveline vibration due to the lowering springs I added. I needed to get my pinion angle set correctly and this part fit the bill. It is a good solid replacement that also takes out the slop of the factory arm. The downside is a slight bit more vibration into the car. I can live with that given that this fixed my pinion angle vibration. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is the size and the location of the flats on the center section. It is not easy to get a wrench that large over the center of the arm while its installed in the car.

    Pinion angle

    I initially bought this to adjust my pinion angle after dropping it. After installing it the retainer nuts have come loose twice. It is supposed to be adjustable on car but there is no way that is happening as you can't get under the car. Doesn't appear to have changed wheel hop but it has kept it in a straight line.

    Good fit, easily adjustable.

    I bought this and its bracket in fear of having pinion angle problems with a lowered car and installing a driveshaft guys one piece shaft, since there is only a 1/2 window on the shaft install.. Ran into no issue with that, but I kept the control arm on as it looks sharp and is much better quality than the stock part, that and if I ever do run into angle issues it is on there and the piece of mind is worth it.

    RTR GOODIES

    I installed this along with the RTR bracket when I lowered my mustang on spoetlines. Also have lower control arms and relocation brackets. Needless to say I hook much better off the line. Did a dig race against a pesky built vette and took him off the line until about 90 when his extra 150 horse took me.
