    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

        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 (10)

        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 (4)

        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 bought I set of these and recently installed them. I installed them with the suspension loaded and after 1000kms the rear lower control arm bushing is already destroyed on both. Where can I get new bushings at, will the bbk ones fit these?

        • We are sorry to hear about the bushing issue. Please reach out directly to our customer service department via our live chat feature, email at support@AmericanMuscle.com, or by calling 1-855-209-8876 we need to find some additional information about your build before making a recommendation and would be glad to help assist you with this issue!

            I purchased these awhile back and recently installed them on car along with new shocks and springs and a eibach sway bar. I have about 1000kms on them now and the rear bushing of the lower control arm is shot on one side already not to impressed the uppers and the front bushing is fine though. now I have to try and find bushings to fit these or get new better ones

            jig saw puzzle upper and lower rear control arms

            I bought these upper and lower control arms for the rear of my stang 5/19. I have owned 5 foxbodys in my life and replaced all upper and lower control arms for each of my vehicles. First time I purchased this brand. Well made but didn't come assembled. I had to install all the bushings myself. Comes with 2 different size bolt installation kits. Doesn't come with instructions so you better pick the right bolt kit and bushing sleeves the first time or you will be taking it all back apart. No zerk fittings included and rubber bushings not polyurethane. You get what you pay for. Better than stock for sure but not top of the line product.

            These are great replacements for worn out stock control arms. They cost about the same as a set of bushings. The swaybar mounting is a bit 'off' but not that bad overall.

            Best bang for the buck

            I purchased these control arms and paired them up with SR performance V2 coilovers. The rear end now is very predictable and under control. Wheel hop is gone!! Cheap and effective. Tough built and comes with solid bushings. Install takes a little time. Take into consideration that there can be issues with removing and replacing the control arms if you have exhaust in the way. Luckily for me. I installed new exhaust and had my stock exhaust cut out before tackling this project. Do not torque bolts until you load the arms and suspension up with the vehicles weight. Improper installation and to much preload on the bushings can result in bushing prematurely wearing out. Factort sway bar bolt bolts on differently. Purchased new bolts from a hardware store. Didnt have any other issues.
