Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at two products from SR Performance, I have with me their adjustable and non-adjustable rear lower control arms, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. SR Performance has taken the Mustang world by storm lately with their wide variety of high quality performance and suspension components with prices that should fit nicely into just about anyone’s budget. And if you want to find out more about SR Performance and what products they offer for your ride, just click the link below to head back to our site and see for yourself. Alright, so SR Performance just released their two rear lower control arm options for the S197, one features full adjustability while the other does not. Both options feature strong TIG welded tubular steel, along with this nice gloss black powder coating. They do feature greasable polyurethane bushings on both, with the exception of these spherical heim joints, located on the adjustables. If you’re not quite sure what option might work best for you, don’t hesitate to ask our award winning customer service team what they think, email them at support@AmericanMuscle.com, or give them a call at 1-855-422-7439. Even though the control arms are slightly different by design, to reduce your Mustangs wheel hop and improve your traction off the line. Plain and simply, they do this by using a superior material, permabushings, and in the case of the adjustables here, they allow you to dial in your optimal alignment settings and pinion angle, especially important if you’ve lowered your ride, and I’d say that would be the main benefit of going with the adjustables, if you want to have to luxury of really fine tuning your accessories to achieve the best 60ft times possible, the adjustables would certainly be the way to go. But if you’re just looking to hook up better and reduce wheel hop by replacing those stock control arms, and soft rubber factory bushings, the non-adjustables from SR would certainly be a low cost options which would get the job done. Both options are relatively easy installs that should only take you 2 hours from start to finish using basic hand tools, with a little bit more time needed for fine tuning the adjustables. So if you’re looking to improve your traction off the line and reduce wheel hop in the process, then you have to check out these two options from SR Performance, right here at AmericanMuscle.com. and for more product overviews from SR Performance and many other products, go ahead and subscribe to our YouTube channel already, just maneuver that mouse down below or up in the corner and click away.

These were pretty easy to install, but make sure you do the measuring. Took a few times tweaking them, but worth it.Helpful (0)

Great for the price!
I've only had these installed for a couple weeks now, but so far these are working great! The install was straight forward, however it would be nice if it came with grease...If the poly bushings were to come separate (not pre-installed), you could then easily put grease everywhere it needs to be. I look forward to seeing how these hold up in the long term.Helpful (0)

More like a race car
These look very sexy on the car. I like the build quality, they seem like a really nice piece. Compared to the stockers, they look like so much more like a true race car. I like the fact that they bring in the best of both worlds with regards to the Heim joint on the end that attaches to the axle, and the greasable polyurethane bushings where they mount to the frame in order to isolate the harshness a little bit. I am waiting on my rebuilt clutch to arrive from McLeod, so I haven't driven the car with them, but I expect a noticeable difference between them and the OEM pieces.Helpful (0)

better than stock for sure
These came assembled not to proper length. They are assembled with grease in the threads. Unfortunately, one of mine was gauled up very bad. The threading inside the bar was damaged delivered. It was very difficult to get it disassembled. Once apart, I coated everything in antiseize and put it back together. Threads still not great but it should work properly not that length is set. No instructions on what to do with the extra bolts they include in the package. I had 2 extra small ones once complete. Road noise is slightly increased but the feel is much better and slop greatly reduced on turns so its a good tradeoff.Helpful (8)

Bushings fell apart
Great product and easy to install. Really noticed the difference . However, after about 12 months of summer use (2 years), and 10,000 miles, I heard a very loud squeak only to find one of the bushings ripped and I was rubbing metal on metal. I lubricated regularly too. Of course AMs only response was to buy a whole new set of control arms. Terribly disappointed.Helpful (10)

No more squat, all go.
I was a little skeptical before installing the LCA's as I did not think it would help much. Not only do my wheels hook up 10x better, but the cars rear end is so much more predictable after installing them. I would recommend this product for anyone who wants to drive their stang the way it should be driven! You'll be surprised how much they help!Helpful (9)
I have recently discovered that the bushings are almost completely worn out and am wondering where I could get new bushings or if I could have the size of the bushings so I can order them
Is a relocation bracket required on a stock height mustang when upgrading LCA to Aftermaket
I bought these control arms about 1 1/2 month ago and one of the rubber bushing is falling apart. What do I do for replacement bushing?
For issues with a part purchased from here, we ask that you contact us at 1 (866) 727-1266 or email@example.com.
Where can I get replacement bushings for these, preferably something better because I've mushed the right side twice now.
If these have failed in warranty, please contact our Customer Service Department so we may assist you with this. For bushings outside of the ones included, you would need to bring the sizing of the bushings for the SR Performance Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms to a bushing manufacturer of your choice to see if these are a setup they make, or if a custom bushing is required.
Do I need upper and lower adjustable ones
It is a good idea to change the control arms to adjustable ones when the car is lowered.
Any lower control arm relocation bracket would work just fine with these control arms.
You do not need the SR Performance Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms (05-14 All) with a lowered Mustang, however I would suggest purchasing them because they allow you to dial in your optimal alignment settings and pinion angle. This is important with a lowered your ride and a big benefit of going with adjustables.
