Review & Installation Video

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. 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 Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms to provide better traction, quicker launches, less wheel hop and as an added bonus, improved 60ft times.

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 powdercoat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

Polyurethane Bushings. These SR Performance Control Arms use greasable black polyurethane bushings on both the chassis and axle side, which are far superior to the factory rubber bushings. The result is great traction during straight-line acceleration and predictable grip during hard cornering.

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

Can I use these with the bmr lca relocation bracket?

SnowWhite5ohh

  • The BMR Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets, Item 49602, require the use of the BMR lower control arms, and these SR Performance Rear Lower Control Arms would not be a direct fit. http://www.americanmuscle.com/bmr-lca-relocationbracket-0512.html

Every time I hit a bump in the road it sounds like something is loose in the trunk. I check the trunk and every thing is secure. I recently replaced my tires and the service guy at belle tire said he thinks it might be the bushing in the lower control arms are worn out. My mustang only has 26,000 miles . Do you think this maybe causing the rattle.

Greg

  • It is quite possible. The factory control arms aren't very durable and they do very little to keep the tires planted to the ground during wot and launches. If you are asking if these upgraded control arms are causing te noise them yes it's probably them. Whenever you add a part with performance in mind you are gonna lose comfortability and quietness so yes it probably are these that are causing the noise. I had the SR performance swaybars, end links, control arms (upper and lower) panhard bar, lowering springs, and Koni shocks and struts. My car squeaked whenever I drove over a pebble, that being said my 60ft time was almost 1.9 seconds before I added all of the suspension mods. It was a 1.59 by the time I was done giving me a 12.6 1/4 mile time with some engine work as well.

Track ET ? The description says it will give faster launches, so will this help to lower my times then ?

Willis0414

  • Most LCAs reduce wheel hop considerably. This should be reflected in your 60 foots, as well as your 1/4 ET. I installed Eibach LCAs on my 2012 and my 60' decreased on the average by a tenth. Good luck.

will these work with loweing springs i wanna know if these will work with ford racing lowering springs on my 2010 gt

andy770

  • Yes. These LCAs are the same length as the stock arms. If your car is currently lowered, be sure to check the side to side axle placement, as the rear housing will shift to one side when the car is lowered. The amount of shift is dependent on the distance the car has been lowered. If a correction is required, an adjustable Panhard bar (AKA as track bar), will allow you to re-center the third member.

But I did notice a reduction in wheel spin, everybody knows, one of the most important factors is grip, and especially for the price, I just had to get it, if your on a tight budget like me, then its a definite must!!

    Don't buy these

    At first these work great, traction, wheel hop, are improved. A year later and my rear end started dancing. One of the poly bushings split in 2 places and warranty is 6 months. They work good, look good, but don't last. If you like replacing them yearly, then buy em, but if you want quality then try something better. In defense of SR my boss is putting out roughly 485hp and sees hard track use, but they don't have a hp limit either.

    Great product but mine came in wrong

    Now these control arms definitely improve the grip that your tires have on the road. They are lighter and tougher than the stock ones and they are a must have for any mustang owner. The only problem I had was that I got two identical control arms, but in order for them to fit on the car with both studs facing down, you have to get mirror versions. So what my shop had to do was install the passenger the right way and the driver side with the studs facing up. Now they said that it doesn't really affect anything but I'm not sure whether or not it supposed to be like that or if I got an incorrectly packaged product. Either way I recommend this product to anyone who wants better launches and turning.

    Good product for the price

    Happy with the product, was easy to install, took about 2 hours total with a help from a friend. Be sure to grease the outside of the bushing to avoid any serious rubbing. Rear end deffinately feels stiffer when accelerating but feels the same wen turning compared to the stock control arms. These aftermarket parts are a bit lighter which helps those trying to get a better time down the track. Not a night and day kind of change for your mustang but absolutely an improvement.

    Fun but rough on the driver

    I've had these on the car for about a week now, along with the upper control arm, and I could immediately tell the difference as soon as I drove away from the shop. I upgraded to these because the old stock ones were squeaky and flexible. The entire rear end is so much more direct than before, which can be both good and bad. Upon acceleration, braking, and turning, the rear is much stiffer and gives more confidence. However, in a parking lot and driving down the road, you feel every little hole, bump and rough spot that wasn't noticeable before. This has loosened up a bit in the week I've had it so far, so it does get better with bemreak-in, but it is still pretty hard on the road. Overall, it is a good product and worth getting to upgrade your suspension.

    Worked like a champ

    I recently purchased this item bc if your not looking to lower your mustang it's perfect and you don't have to deal with the adjustable control arms. I have a supercharged 08 mustang gt with 10 psi boost. Took about an hour to install just simply the fact you have to pry the new bushings into place but with a pry bar it wasn't to terrible. Took my mustang to the drag strip the weekend before purchasing this product and had a nasty wheel hop in the burnout box. Went to the drag strip the weekend after installing the control arms matched with a new panhard bar and absolutely no wheel hop. Performed just like I hoped. Excellent results!!

    Installing The Lower Control Arms

    Other reviews said these fit tight they were not kidding! The factory ones sort of fell out when bolts removed but the only way to install these is to use a small jack to "press" them in place plus a lot of pushing, prying and cussing. They fit tight which is good. My real complaint is with the grease fittings. Passenger side no problem as the fittings face down. On drivers side they face up so it is impossible to get a grease gun on. I had to swap the fittings with angled ones so I could get the hose on. They recommend one squirt of grease every 3,000 miles so I gave it 3 squirts, figure I'm good for 9,000 miles LOL. Seriously its a pain in the neck so I don't think I will ever try and lube these. SR could solve this by making arms specific for left and right side rather than just the one. Installed with a new panhard support bar and this combination seemed to tighten up the rear end noticeably.

    SR performance rear lower control arms

    This is a nice product and an awesome upgrade from the factory control arms. I installed them on a cool day and had to put them in the freezer for a while to shrink the the bushings on the front mounts. Even after that I had to wrestle with them to get them in. The rear mounts slid in with a little grease, I only had problems with the front.

    Doesn't Last

    I like many thought these were great when I 1st received them. Now a little over a year later I've had to replace them twice. Last time was only after 4 months. Bushings in these don't last. This is in a fairly stock GT daily driver that for the most part is babied and only occasionally driven on weekends. Do yourself a favor and get from a known brand. I replaced with Ford Racing control arms myself. American Muscle is great as always and both times stepped up to the plate to replace these but I'll never order anything SR again.

    Easy Install / Easy Upgrade

    Install was easy and simple. I did use my floor jack to get the front of the LCA into the bracket. I also had to pry the back end back towards the mount so the bolt hole was accessible. Other than that the instructions were spot on. Just hit the bolts with WD40 before to help loosen them up.

    Rear Control Arms

    First the bad... Front bushings are 1/4 inch wider than stock. Which means they are really hard to get into place. I did grease them on the outside to help. Seems like they could fix that problem. Other than that they look good and rear fits good. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to install because of the excessive tight fit in the front. The round tube design should be stronger than a flat tube. Overall I'm Happy with them.

    What Ford should have installed to begin with!

    I purchased these control arms because the wheel hop was driving me crazy. I could not believe how flimsy the stock arms are. After installing these, the difference is like night and day! Wheel hop gone. They took about 2 hours to install. It was a little tricky, because when I upbolted the stock arms, the axle would shift to the rear about an inch. No worries, this is not the first Mustang I have replaced control arms on. I used a come-along to winch the axle back into place. The front mounts do need to be coaxed into place. Rather than using a hammer and risk any damage, I used a scissors jack instead. I recommend this upgrade to all S197 owners.
