    Review & Install Video

    Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m going to be breaking down 2 rear upper control arm options both from SR Performance, I have with me their adjustable and non-adjustable option, both fitting the 2005-2010 Mustang. SR Performance is a company that’s been earning the respect and attention of a lot of Mustang enthusiasts lately, thanks to their budget friendly yet high quality performance and suspension components for all generation Mustangs. IF you’re not already watching this video on AmericanMuscle.com and you’d like to get back to our site, to read more about SR’s killer lineup, just click on the link below. The job of an upper control arm is to locate the axle side to side and prevent any pinion angle changes otherwise known as axle rap or axle windup. The factory stuff utilizes some pretty soft rubber bushings, which are notorious for flexing or distorting on hard launches, and aggressive cornering which can cause a bunch of wheel hop, and inconsistent handling. If you want to learn more about making your Mustang handle better and reducing your wheel hop, well, then you have to subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking the link below. Here you can check out numerous suspension overviews on all of our products, in addition to some pretty cool suspension builds that we’ve done to our own cars. Both of the options I’ve got on the table should do an excellent job of dropping your 60ft times, and reducing wheel hop and axle deflection, while increasing your rear end group by using superior materials compared to your factory control arms. The non adjustables here feature a strong TIG welded steel construction, along with these polyurethane bushings which are greasable. Poly bushings will do a great job of reducing any noise vibrations or harshness, that you otherwise might find on the spherical bearings found on the adjustable control arms here. In my opinion this is a great option for someone who enjoys doing some spirited driving with their Mustang, maybe just a few track days, and just wants to replace those soft rubber factory bushings in the control arm. The adjustable option from SR Performance is for someone who is serious about their track performance, and would ultimately like to dial in their optimum pinion angle settings. For only a few bucks more compared to the non-adjustables, you’re getting full on car adjustability, strong TIG welded steel construction, and these spherical hind joints here, which are going to take all the unwanted movement out of your Mustang’s rear end. Both options aren’t terribly difficult to install and should only take you a couple of hours in the garage using some pretty basic hand tools. Whenever you switch out your rear upper control arms I recommend getting your pinion angle checked out just to make sure everything’s within spec, especially if you decide to go with the adjustables. An incorrect pinion angle can cause unwanted traction, wear and tear on your pinion bearing and drive train vibrations. If you’re not quite sure which option would be best for your application, you should get in touch with one of our Mustang experts, you can call them at 855-422-7439, or shoot them an email at support@AmericanMuscle.com. So if you’re on the endless quest to make your Mustang perform better on the street, or at the track then you have to check out a set of these adjustable or non adjustable control arms from SR Performance, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    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 Upper Control Arm 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 Upper Control Arm in a black powder coat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

    Polyurethane Bushings. This SR Performance control arm uses greaseable red polyurethane bushings 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 SR Performance Rear Upper Control Arm with red polyurethane bushing is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for all 2005 to 2010 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

    It is shorter than the factory control arm , is there any problem if i install it?

    • The SR Performance Rear Upper Control Arms will be the same length as your factory Upper control arms. If your Mustang is lowered, we recommend the adjustable to allow for better angle adjustment over the fixed control arm.

      Better than OEM replacement

      Helps reduce the wheel hop. I don't think it would be good for heavy drag racing, but fine for a daily driver. Installing the center arm does require lowering the gas tank to get the mounting bracket out. I have a hoist in my barn so it took about 1.5 hours to install. Installing these control arms on the ground off of jack stands could take a full afternoon. I installed the lower arms with the grease zerks down. everything works fine. I didn't see a difference from side to side, just front to rear on the outer arms.

      Nice control arm.

      Works well for controlling wheel hop and plants the rear well. Does clunk occasionally over bumps, but no big deal. If you don't want the clunk then order one of the aftermarket mounting brackets with it. Easy fit. (I already had aftermarket lower control arms.)

      Did great for about 2000 miles

      It is built solid fit great and did what it said it would do but i ran in to two problems it calls for grease that is compatible with the bushings no one local could say for sure what to use. And after about 2000 miles the poly bushing looks like it exploded. An I am unanble to find a replacement for it. And yes I torqued it to specs that were with the product at normal ride hight. Thank you

      Good OEM replacement

      Looks to be good quality, did not notice any difference in ride, but at 230,00 miles, thought it was time to replace. Replaced this along with the axle bushing, LCAs, panhard bar and its brace.

      SR Performance Rear Upper Control Arm

      Very happy with this product, it does exactly as advertised. However, Install was pretty tricky due to its location. Also, when it came time to torque the bolts back down to the degree specified on the instructions (129ftlbs and 85ftlbs) It was virtually impossible to get a torque wrench into place without extensions which mess with the torque settings. But all in all, if you have the right tools, and know what you are doing, you should be fine.

      Goodbye wheel hop!

      I installed new LCAs and got rid of most of the wheel hop on burn outs, but there was still a little chattering. Replacing the UCA eliminated all traces of wheel hop. I'm very happy with the results.

      stang it!

      You do not have to lower your gas tank on a 2007 like stated to get the upper bolt out. just take it loose from under rear seat and take the bolts under the car completely out and you can move the bracket enough to get the upper bolt out! no wheel hop after installing 410 gears as well!

      Quick performance improvement

      I am lucky enough to have a lift and air tools to complete the work I do. At almost 60 years old I found replacing the upper control arm fairly simple and it only took me less than 45 minutes to complete the job. The part arrived before expected and the salesman that I spoke with was extremely helpful and easy to talk with. My Mustang is putting out 350 H.P. to the rear wheels and the new part helps it hook up out of the hole.

      works nice, went in exactly right.

      This piece went in exactly the way it was supposed to. Was a little cramped getting a wrench up in there, but it took me total about 2 hours. Took me longer to get the old one out that to put the new one in. I did not have to drop the gas tank either., had no problems doing it without dropping the tank. The two rear bolts holding the bracket to the car were very, very tight and took me a little bit to break loose, but once I did that, they came to easy. I notice that it 'plants ' itself on the road better and it is coupled with my new tubular lower control arms and works great. Product is a little on the pricy side, I think, but not rediculous and it does just what it says it will.

      Great control arm

      Control arm is much stronger than original. My car only had 32k miles and already had small tears in the factory bushing. Install was easy just a pain to lower the gas tank. I do however have a problem with A.M.'s description of the product. Pictures and description state and show the product with red bushings it came with black. Not a big deal but I prefer red as it is easier to spot tears/bushing wear.

      Way better, much tighter rear end.

      The rear end on my 2007 GT was loose and squeaked like an old porch swing. I have 52k miles on it. I could feel the dislocation of the rear end on every corner, and I was afraid the axle was going to grenade itself from the tire hop. I installed this upper control arm, the SR performance lower control arms and the heavy duty panhard bar in about 5 hours. Took me a while because I couldn't find an 18mm gear wrench or an 18mm wobbler impact socket. You gonna need some torque to get the old bolts off. The two 18mm bolts are easier to reach if you use a long box end wrench to loosen them, and then a shorter gear wrench to get them out quickly. Grease this one AFTER its installed, otherwise the grease will blow the bushings out. There's a lot of room inside the tube for air/grease, so fill it up and makes sure it's lubed good. Silicone based grease for these. Mine came with black bushings, but they are polyurethane. Replacing the stock control arms and Panhard bar make a huge difference in the feel of the rear end. It's much tighter, corners without dislocating the axle and doesn't hop around on launches.

      As always great service, fast shipping, and great products. This was a little involved; but well worth the work. The payoff was a lot better launch off the line. Was impressed with the difference just one part could make. I already had the lowers installed an this was the finishing touch. Awesome! Thank AM

      If you're planning on installing this yourself...

      Be prepared to spend the whole weekend doing it, removing hte back seat and partially dropping the gas tank. But it is worth it! You might as well upgrade the whole back end if your going this far. Thats what I did and I couldnt be happier that Its done!

      Be prepared for the install

      First off buy new bolts for your brackets. I started accidently breaking the bolt under the rear seat. It was torqued super tight and flexed a lot. Overall it installed super easy removal of the stock part is the worst. I used all hand tools (also dont do) and it was miserable. Next time I'm just gonna have a shop do it.
