    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with my review of Whiteline double adjustable rear lower control arms for 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. Whiteline's adjustable rear lower control arms are going to be a good option for the S197 owners that are looking to address the inherit traction and wheel hop issues that the factory's suspension allows for, especially if you've modded your car at all and you're putting down more power. Lower control arms are very beneficial for all Mustangs, whether you keep your car on the street or whether it sees any kind of track or strip time. Generally speaking, the idea is the control arms will be an upgrade over the stance steel arms, and they're going to stop a lot of the flex that the stock components allow for. One of the main reasons why the stock setup has so many downfalls is because soft rubber bushings are used. The soft bushings allow for a more comfortable ride that's for giving and it's an overall better experience for the average driver. However, these bushings leave a lot to be desired from a performance standpoint, especially when considering handling and traction. These Whiteline control arms have max-c bushings, which are synthetic elastomer. They're also a dual durometer bushings. What all of this means is a stiffer bushing for less deflection, which is a good. thing. Less deflection means less movement and flexibility and therefore improved traction. But you also have to keep in mind the compound of the bushing that you're using. The more rigid the bushing, the more abrasive the ride quality will be. This particular bushing is made from a compound that is stiffer than the factory bushing, but it also helps to dampen NVH at the same time. So you're not looking at a severely uncomfortable ride quality here. These are also a tubular design, made from a high quality steel construction. So this is a high quality tubular steel that's going to be a lot more rigid and offer more support than the factory stance steel arm does. It's a definite upgrade for sure. Another thing I see here is forged rod ends, which are also superior to your factory components. They're power coated silver, so not only are they going to look nice, but they also have some corrosion resistance, which is nice because they are a low hanging under car suspension part. When it come to lower control arms, there are a lot of choices. You can go with a fixed setup or an adjustable one or even a double adjustable arm like this one here is. One is not necessarily better than the other. It all depends on your setup and the specific reasons for the control arms. Generally speaking, adjustable control arms work better on lowered cars than fixed control arms do, because you can use the adjustability of the control arms to set a proper angle. Adjustable arms are used to adjust the wheel camber, which changes when you lower the car. Camber becomes a car when it comes to traction and performance, and the control arm can create the desired angle, even after the car is lowered. Like I said, these are double adjustable, which means that each arm has two points of adjustment. So some added adjustability makes it a little easier to really dial in what you need. The other thing to keep in mind here is that while these lower control arms will help performance-wise with things like better traction, better hooking, and better handling, they are only one component of a handful of other pieces that all work together. If you're really looking to improve things in the rear, there are a handful of other components you should look into as well, like an adjustable upper control arm setup, hand hard bar, relocation brackets, just to name a few things here. But these are still a good step toward eliminating wheel hop and getting the rear more stable, allowing for harder launches and keeping the suspension more consistent no matter what you're doing with your car. As far as price, these control arms are going to cost a little over $200. These double adjustable arms are going to cost less than Whiteline single adjustable arms and in the overall view of the lower control arm market, these are right in the middle of the pack. There are some options right under $200 and some options that cost more than the Whitelines. The install here are is really pretty easy, and I'll give you a quick overview of the install so you can decide is this is something that you'd like to try for yourself or not. You're going to need to get the rear of the car in the air and remove the rear wheels, of course. The brake cable does run through the control arms, so you'll have to detach that so you can remove your old control arms. Before you install you new control arms, use the old control arm as a guide to adjust the new control arms so they're the same length. Once you grease the new control arm bushing, they're ready to be installed. Just a side note, you should torque these down to spec and reinstall the brake cable. The process is the same for both sides, and overall this is a one wrench install on our scale and should take just about an hour to complete. I will say, though, that since these are adjustable, you should stop by an alignment shop after the install to get everything dialed in correctly, and make sure that you're fully utilizing the adjustable arms. Wrapping things up here, the Whiteline adjustable lower control arms are on car double adjustable, have a tubular steel construction, forged rod ends, and have max-c synthetic elastomer bushings that are going to tighten up the rear end and help deliver power to the ground. You can check these control arms out along with all the other control arm options for the S197 Mustang right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improves Traction. Going nowhere fast? If your Mustang can't "hook up" you're just spinning your tires. Whiteline Performance designed their Double Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms to improve the rear wheel traction of your 2005-2014 Mustang. By improving traction and reducing wheel hop, these Lower Control Arms will help decrease your 60 foot times.

    Double Adjustable. Unlike some other aftermarket control arms, Whiteline Rear Lower Control Arms are on-car double adjustable. This allows you to precisely dial in your settings, specific for your application, ensuring you stay straight down the track every time.

    Superior Construction. Manufactured from tubular DOM steel tubing for superior strength and rigidity, these Whiteline Double Adjustable Rear LCAs feature Synthetic Dual-Durometer Elastomer MAX-C Bushings housed in forged rod ends with a multi axial composite design. These Control Arms are completed in a silver powdercoated finish for corrosion resistance and good looks.

    MAX-C Bushings. The Dual-Durometer MAX-C Bushing compound of these LCAs helps dampen NVH, the reinforcement sleeve inside redistributes load to prevent binding or gapping and the PTFE liner serves as a lubricating agent for a grease-free, silent operation.

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

    Are lca's and brackets necessary for lowered mustangs if only used as a daily driver car. I don't track and rarely drive hard but I like the lowered look. My plan is springs, struts, shocks, camber bolts, panhard bar and bump stops. Will that be enough?

    Michael

    • No, lower control arms and relocationbrackets are not necessary to install springs on your Mustang although we do recommend them to improve the handling even on a daily driver. If you purchase the springs, struts, shocks, camber bolts, Panhard bar and bump stops that will work great.

    I plan to lower my car. I'm expecting a 1.5" drop. Are these necessary for lowered mustangs

    • Whenever lowering your car, it is a good idea to get a pair of Whiteline Double Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms.

    • Unfortunately we do not offer any type of full suspension package or wheel hop package for the Whiteline products.

      2 weeks in!

      Install was super easy, it was much harder to take off my earn out fixed J and m! I would recommend a silver sharpie to mark the head of the bushing so you can accurately adjust the length ! Car seems more planted under acceleration , be the j and M ! And the angle is much better as my car is quite low , to adjust my pinion angle without a UCA!

      Should have done it sooner!

      These LCAs replaced the ones that I had with the heim joints and it made a world of difference. I now don’t have any squeaking coming from my rear end and I love it.

      Great trusted name and part

      My only complaint is, it would be nice if the lock washer had a flat surface to lock against. To lock it in place you torque the the bolt down against the lock washer, which starts to compress against the nice painted bars and as the washer seems a little oversized, it starts to ride up and into the bar. I think they should have welded a washer to the bar for the lock washer to seat against.

      Adjustable rear control arms

      One of the control arms came un lubricated so it was a bit of a pain trying to loosen then up to make them easier to adjust.

      Road worthy LCAs

      These LCAs have firmer bushings and do not contribute to road noise. I have these in combination with the Roush Wheel Hop Reduction Kit (Upper Control Arm) and the Boss 302S relocation brackets. This combination has eliminated all wheel hop. My only complaint is that the Bushing retainer is quite large, so it will only fit in the middle hole of the Boss 302S bracket. There is interference issues if you want to use the lowest setting on the relocation bracket. I am fine using the middle hole with my setup, but it would have been nice to have that option. Installation was easy and quick! Easy to adjust on the car as well!

      Installed these with a set if prolines and a whiteline panhard bar. It doesn't feel like the same car anymore. Suspension should be a first upgrade for any mustang.

      ROCKIT SHIP

      Did the upper and lower with a new mounting bracket on top and relocating brackets on the lowers, along with a adjustable pan hard and new mounting bracket for that guy, it really pinched down that axle, no more hop, no more feeling like the axle is trying to head one way while the rest of the car is going another. The thing stays in place and puts the power down in turns and straight line. The max c bushings do as advertised I don't notice anymore nose compared to stock, you get a little more clucky cluck from the two piece drive shaft but that's getting replaced soon enough.

      These control arms cured my wheel hop all while not adding any more noise like some previous ones I have used before. Would recommend these to anyone looking for control arms.

      Another awesome product from Whiteline. I have their sway bars, upper and lower control arms, lower control arm bracket, pan hard bar, and pan hard bar brace. Whittling products are second to none! Will continue to purchase their products from American Muscle in the future.

      Great quality and feel

      I have had mine on about 3 months. . .I used AM lowering springs from SR performance at same time. . .still no traction. .then I realized I changed angle of lca and now no weight transfer to axle on launch. Ordered the Whiteline lca relocating brackets. . huge difference. . this is a must have combo. If you lower the car you need the brackets and arms combo. . cut my 60 foot times by 4 tenths. . . awesome product

      Excellent LCA's

      These control arms make all the difference in the world. I had previously installed a handful of performance mods including a cold air intake and 93 octane tune and was experiencing wheel hop through 1st and 2nd gears. I paired these LCA's with Whiteline's upper control arm and I can't get wheel hop if I try. Rear end is solid and feels like a completely different vehicle. Install took less than an hour on jack stands and everything was easily adjustable. These give you a great deal more confidence leaving the line and handling imperfections in the road.

      whiteline LCA's

      The only complaint I have is that the lock washers are way to big, at least it seems like they are. They basically start sliding over the silver tubing of the lca when tightening the nut. Other than they they are great. I had the BMR non adjustable ones before this. The whiteline ones are a tad bit louder. Barely noticeable though.

      Back on the road again!

      After buying a recently used 2012 Mustang GT I really disliked how the stock factory rear end felt. While going over bumps or gaps in the roadway at speed I could feel the car hop and skip off the roadway with speed. I had my friend install these for me and they made a huge improvement no more wheel hopping and felt more traction and I like fact they are adjustable so I plan to drop the car this spring it will be an easy adjustment.
