    Review & Install Video

    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 stock 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 red powder coated finish for long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Application. This Red 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

    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.

    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.

    Helpful (1)

    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.

    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)

    Which sleeve goes in the lower control arm bushing for a 2001 GT? Mine were mailed to me with the smaller diameter sleeve pressed in wasn’t sure if I needed to replace with the larger sleeve. I am certain I tried fitting the larger bolt into the axle mount and would not fit

    • The lower control arm should typically utilize the smaller sleeves.

      Review from SR Performance Complete Rear Control Arm Kit - Black (79-04 All, Excluding 99-04 Cobra)

      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.

      DECEIVING

      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.

      Cheap bushings and lower snapped

      First set I bought and installed the bushings got chewed up in just a couple months when car was stock plus flowmasters. Second set they covered warranty, but they only lasted 10 months now with just bolt ons and tires that don't grip, the right lower snapped in half by where the spring and away bar are. Very weak garbage. So do yourself a favor and spend 50 to 100$ more for a stronger set. These were so weak. Was able to weld control arm for now but buying a proven and known well brand very soon. ... and no bushings included for the upper to diff?? Using the old ones is only option I had at the time. Save your miney buy better set

      Low cost and fast shipping only down side is no instructions came with it thought , ended up with four extra bolts and sleeves that were not used but slightly larger size than other 8 that were needed for install. New arms did help quite a bit with the handling and ride of the car !
