    Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of the SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit for all Mustangs, except for those that have IRS, of course, that are in the '79 to 2004 range. This complete rear control arm kit is going to be for the Fox Body or SN95 owner that's looking to get the rear end a little more planted and solid and reduce the wheel hop and improve traction. This kit comes with a set of fixed upper and lower control arms, powder coated in either black, like these ones here are, or red. So these control arms in this kit here are obviously tubular steel as opposed to the box steel that you might find with other brands. But no matter which way you go with aftermarket control arms, you're still going to be upgrading over the factory stamped steel arms. The big thing to call out here is going to be the difference in bushings, though. The factory control arms have soft rubber bushings that allow for a lot of movement in the rear end, which is where you get your wheel hop and traction issues from. But this SR Performance kit comes with polyurethane bushings, like most aftermarket control arm kit options have, which are going to be stiffer than those rubber bushings. And what I like abut this is that it should make things feel more firm but not harsh. So the driveability is still going to be there. As far as price, this kit is right in between $100 and $200 for both upper and lower control arms, and the bolts, washers, and nuts needed for the install. This is less expensive than a set of just uppers or lowers alone in other brands. And if you want to get really fancy with it, you can go adjustable, but you can expect to spend a good chunk of change more if you go that route. As for the install, I'm going to call this a two wrench install, and I'll just say that if you haven't done anything like this before, then it might be best just to go to a professional. But if you have a little experience and decide to do this yourself, you're probably looking at about half a day since this kit does have both upper and lower arms to install. You're gonna wanna make sure that you have a jack and stands if you aren't doing this on a lift and a torque wrench for sure. Other than that, you'll just need a few different sockets and possibly a plastic or wood hammer, and you should be good to go. Wrapping things up here, if you're looking to get the rear planted so you can put down the power and improve your launches or even your all around handling, then a set of upper and lower control arms is a great place to start. This kit from SR Perfomance has fixed tubular steel arms with stronger polyurethane bushings, and you can check it out for yourself and do some more research online. I'm Stephanie and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improves Traction. Replace those weak stamped steel factory control arms on your 1979-2004 Mustang with a SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit to significantly improve traction for quicker launches and to reduce annoying wheel hop under heavy acceleration or braking.

    Correct Bushing Sleeves. This SR Performance Rear Control Arm Kit comes complete with sleeves for bushings for both the 1979-1998 and 1999-2004 model year Mustangs. The sleeves are easy to install, just choose the correct sleeves for your model year and insert them into the control arms with the supplied lubricant, its that simple.

    Quality Construction. Manufactured from tubular DOM steel for superior strength to reduce control arm flex, these SR Performance upper and lower control arms are completed in a durable gloss black powder coated finish for long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Application. This Black SR Performance Rear Control Arm Kit comes complete with two upper and two lower control arms and are designed for use on all 1979 to 2004 solid axle Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and 1994-1998 SVT Cobra. Does not fit 1999-2004 IRS equipped Cobras.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    I've read reviews where people have said that the bushings wear out quickly. Has this issue been corrected by the manufacturer?

    • With the bushings on these SR Performance rear control arms, it is important that the control arms are installed with the rear suspension under a load. If they are installed with the rear suspension hanging free, when the control arms set after being put under a load, the bushings are put under additional strain, torque, and contortion which can cause accelerated wear and deterioration.

    Helpful (2)

    Recently purchased the SR Performance control arm kit and noticed after a few hundred miles the bushings were trashed. Is there a replacement that is more durable and compatible with the kit?

    • Please contact our customer service department so we may assist you with replacing the control arm bushings. Please note that while the control arms can be installed with the car off the ground and the suspension unloaded, the control arm bolts must not be tightened until the suspension is at ride height to prevent premature failure of the bushings.

    Helpful (1)

    I've also read several reviews about the poor quality of the bushings that are in these upper and lower control arms, and would like to know also if there has been a correction for this

    • The SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit has a lot of great reviews as well. There has been no change in the product at this time but there are a lot of customers that have had great experiences as with these control arms. If you have any other questions feel free to call or chat in.

    The discription doesn't show the upper axle housing bushings, Is there a pair included or do I need to purchase them seperately? If needed are they available through AM?

    • The SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit - Red comes with everything that is in the picture. These do not include the upper axle housing bushings. They will have to be purchased separately. I would recommend the Ford Performance Rear Upper Axle Bushings Item #50384 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-88-axle-install-8604.html)

    I purchased a set of these recently. I was told by one of the representatives that these fixed arms are ok to use with the 1.5" sr perfomance lowering springs. I wanted to check again and make sure they are ok when lowering 1.5". And also when is it necessary to use adjustable arms? If there are No issues using these when lowering 1.5" then I'm happy with my purchase. I will wait to install arms until I buy the springs.

    • The SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit will work well with 1.5" of lowering. Drops in excess of 1.5" we typically recommend adjustable control arms, or applications where the pinion angle needs to be adjusted.

      Great deal

      My old control arms were original and the bushings were worn out. I bought these on sale and they came fast and seem really high quality. The rear feels planted now. I also installed ford racing axle bushings and new spring insulators. I had to use an air hammer and a lot of patience to get some of the old bolts out luckily the kit comes with new hardware but I would reuse the factory nuts because the ones supplied aren’t very strong. They give you just enough lube for the poly bushings so try to make it last. It should be noted that the bolts have to be tightened when the car is on the ground so that you don’t shorten the life of the bushings I used an alignment rack. If you need more lube I was told it has to be silicone based with PTFE.

      Bought the kit and it was delivered within 2 days. Tightened up the entire back of the car !!! Great bolt on kit. Comes with grease for the bushings and they are better than advertised!!! My Mustang hooks better and stays straighter when I get on it hard!!! Couldn't ask for a better product.

      SR Rear Control Arms

      The factory arms finally rotted on me so I had to get those replace. Got about 140k miles on my 04 Mustang so I wanted to be cost effective as I need to get shocks and structs replaced also. The mechanic did great work and only charged me $150. Where as the dealer was looking about $2000. Happy so far. We'll see the overall improvement once I get those shocks and structs replaced. Couldn't be happier with this part. A great choice for cost effective replacement as it the whole set for the rear. Would definitely recommend this product and American Drive Shaft for the install if your located in the Atlanta area.

      Arms and bushings are a great value. Do yourself a favor and buy some better nylock nuts. The supplied nuts easily strip with a little torque.

      No video to show you what to do if your control arm bolts are seized. If this happens to you, be prepared to buy an angle grinder with 7" cutting disc. This is the only way to get them out unless you have a cutting torch! I wish somebody would have mentioned this to me before I spent 2 entire days killing myself trying to get them out! But once removed, replacing the new parts only took about 20 minutes.
