    Hey I’m Justin with, 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, 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 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. In the meantime that’ll do it from me and we’ll see you next time.

    Improves Traction. Everyone knows that you're going nowhere fast if you can't "hook up" off the line, that's why SR Performance designed their Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms to provide better traction, quicker launches, less wheel hop and as an added bonus improved 60ft times.

    On-Car Adjustable. SR Performance S197 Mustang Lower Control Arms are 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.

    Tubular Steel Construction. Made in the USA from TIG welded heavy duty 1.5" steel tubing for superior strength, SR Performance completes their Rear Lower Control Arms with a black powder coat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

    Polyurethane and Aluminum Bushings. These SR Performance control arms use greaseable red polyurethane bushings on the chassis side and feature Aurora (heim joint) spherical rod end bearings and aluminum bushings on the axle side. The result is great traction during straight-line acceleration and predictable grip during hard cornering.

    Application. This set of two SR Performance Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms with spherical rod end bearings are designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

        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?

        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.

        Helpful (0)

        I recently purchased these and was curious on which relocation bracket would work best with these. I was considering the Steeda or BMR bracket but I wanted to make sure first. Thank you in advance.

        • Any lower control arm relocation bracket would work just fine with these control arms.

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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!

            I'm Amazed

            I originally bought another set of arms but they didn't ship to Canada so when the rep contacted me I asked to suggest one that would satisfy my need and he recommended these adjustable. They are great so far, when the opportunity comes I will test the adjust-ability of them to see how they perform but I am confident that they will do just fine

            Great with drop brackets

            I didn't have any wheel hop but I lowered it so I wanted to adjust the pinion angle before my u-joints wore out. Simple install,had to file down the spacers to get them to fit in the drop brackets. Feels much better I like the rod end makes turning feel.. Safer lol. I didn't notice any road noise increase but I also have long tubes and straight pipe so idk

            Bye Wheel Hop

            Got these when I lowered my car to help adjust the pinion and suspension geometry for the track. Way stouter than stock, no side to side movement and wheel hop that cracked my ring gear with drag radials is gone! Just hooks and GOES!!!

            SR adjustable lower control arms

            Took about 3hrs. to install. I have a 2009 Gt glasstop. I received two spacers with each arm, one small and one larger. With the spacers, one of each size, on the adjustable end the arm was too big to fit the existing bracket. The two small spacers on the arm fit the bracket fine, so I put one side on then cut a 1/2 inch off the two longer spacers and then it fit. It took me longer than normal to put these on because of this problem. Took it for a test drive and now the front end wants to leave the ground. Worth the money!

            VERY NICE

            This was a great adjustment for traction. This, along with the panhard bar, with my lowered stang, has caused less wheel hop and a lot less spinning at the line. Recommend this to anyone.

            Adj Lowers

            Product fit very well. I look forward to seeing the difference. One suggestion though.... Include some type of alignment specs for adjusting them. I just used the bolts and the original Lowers to adjust them to the same length as stock. But purchasing the adjustable why not give some direction on how to improve your car. Otherwise you might as well just buy fixed ones.

            Excellent suspension upgrade

            Amazing suspension upgrade. Makes your straight line and cornering feel so much more tight in the rear end. Dropped my 60ft time from 2.2 to 2.0 and completely illiminated wheel hop for any burnouts. Being able to adjust them while still on the car, helps you fine tune them for your driving styles.

            SR rear lower Control Arms

            very nice looking product, easy to read instructions, before removing the old LCA's make sure you have the right tools, to include 2 magnetic angle gauges. that will reduce the change out time in half. best to be able to be on a lift, like a alignment stand so the cars weight is on the rear axle when fine tuning the LCA. yes matching the OEM to the SR units by running long bolts to set the base length gets you within a degree or two of the correct set up. then use the angle gauges to set the face of the differential to zero and the shaft should be at 2 degree. adjust the LCA's so that the face and shaft are within 2 degrees of each other. that will give you an overall great setup for street, have yet to try strip, it winter in the NW. but the wheel hop I used to have is all but done.

            Nice Part

            Quality of the product is excellent. SRP instructions are not useful at all, too generic, mostly useless. It's a simple part, but it's so different than the stock piece it's not even clear which end is installed front or rear. It comes with two differently sized spacers for the adjustable end. Not clear which one goes inboard sort outboard unless I missed something in the instructions. Follow the nice write-up from AM customer listed on the product page and you'll be fine. I did need to use a floor jack to squeeze the grommet ends into the bracket. Won't know if the part is useful until I go to the drag strip and adjust it a few times. For now, it's the same length as the stock piece. I installed these LCA's with FRPP "P" springs and Strange adjustable shocks all around. I have an auto tranny.

            Goodbye wheelhop

            WOW what a difference. This has almost completely eliminated the wheel hop from the factory control arms and still haven't installed the upper control arm yet. The tires hook up so much better and I feel the burnouts so much more. However since I do feel the road more so its more bumpy and a rougher ride. Not a huge deal for me since I prefer a firm ride. But if you like a smooth comfortable ride then these are not for you. In fact I don't think any control arm will be for you at least none with polyurethane bushing. I will say tho that if you live in a nice area with very smooth roads then its barley noticeable but if you hit a pot hole or bump in the road you will feel.

            The control arms are much more solid than stock. Improved handling and keeps tires in solid contact with road. Grease fittings keep bushings smooth and quiet. Installed by a shop as I watched, much easier installation with a lift.

            The SR LCA's are a nice addition. Instructions are for Non Adjustable, so a little knowledge of LCA's will help installation. No grease provided and will be needed to prevent damage of the poly bushings. Provides good hookup and nearly removes all wheel hop. Good purchase.

            great for the money

            All I can say is "WOW!" What a difference. My stang's wheel hop is gone and my pinion angle is much better. My launches feel SO much better after these arms. The rear end no longer feels like it is going to fly out from under me when I hit a bump going around corners either.  The instructions made the install super easy. The previous reviewer made me a little hesitant but I'm glad I bought these. Yes they fit tight in the bracket, which is exactly what I wanted. These don't have any slop in them like other brands I've seen complaints about.  Bottom line: These have to be the best bang for your buck adjustable LCA's on the market. They fit great. The car handles great. They allow my other go-fast mods to actually be useful since my launches are so much better. Love, love, love these! Good work SR Performance!!
