    Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my complete breakdown of Whiteline's Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arms. As well as, a few different lower control options that will help you and your 2005 to 2014 Mustang. For those of you that do not know, Whiteline has a worldwide reputation as a leading manufacturer of suspension components that provide innovative solutions to suspension and handling constraints. Whiteline's products are known to deliver proven performance and provide significant gains in vehicle balance, steering precision, and grip level. Taking a look at some of the main suspension components we have here today, we all know that the upper control arm is very important when it comes to traction and handling performance. And also when it comes to being able to adjust your instant center and pinion angle, especially for those of you out there with lowered Mustang's and one piece drive shafts. Whiteline offers this adjustable rear upper control arm with the mount that will provide improved traction, allow for faster launches, and eliminate that dreaded wheel hop through a longer-than-factory arm length. This upper control arm is adjustable through this crush tube which is what's going to allow you to change your pinion angle and instant center adjustment, all without weakening the arm. This feature is what's going to allow you to dial in your Mustang's optimum settings for the best performance possible. And lastly, the adjustable upper control arm features a synthetic elastomer bushing that adds increased stability to the rear but without the harshness that we would normally see with the commonly used bearing designs. Whiteline currently offers three different types of rear lower control arms that will ultimately work with the upper control arms to offer even better performance. Two of these options, the fixed lower control arms and the standard adjustable control arms, are made from steel tubing for strength and stability, and feature synthetic Dual-Durometer Elastomer Max-C bushings with a multi axial composite design. As far as the Max-C bushings, the Dual-Durometer compound of the lower control arms 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. The fixed lower control arms feature forged ends, while the single adjustable lowers offer an on-car singular pinch-fold adjustment so you can dial in your settings as with the adjustable upper control arms. Our third option from Whiteline here are the Double-Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms. These are made from tubular chromoly steel and have a non-bonded bushing design with a synthetic elastomer bushing that will allow the crush tubes to float freely. This eliminates bushing wind and snap-back, leaving you with increased handling predictability. As the name implies, the only other difference here is the dual on-car adjust-ability. Your choice here with the lower control arms, really depends on your current or planned setup and what you want to do with your Mustang. Either way, Whiteline has you covered. All of these options are relatively easy to install and if you look at them individually, you're looking at about an hour for the install with a bit more time needed for fine-tuning the adjustable options. And, of course, make sure you have your jack and jack stands ready. As always, be sure to reach out to a Mustang expert by phone or email if you have any questions regarding which option would be best for your build or even if you just have an install question. So if you want to improve your traction off the line, reduce wheel hop, and have the ability to adjust pinion angle, then you have to check out these options from Whiteline. Available right here from AmericanMuscle.com

    Improves Traction. If your S197 Ford Mustang can't hook up, you're going nowhere fast. That is why Whiteline Performance designed these silver powdercoated Fixed Rear Lower Control Arms that will instantly improve traction and help to eliminate wheel hop. The rubber bushings found in the stock control arms are squishy and too soft for a high performance Pony and should be replaced to enhance your driving experience.

    Superior Construction. Made from tubular DOM steel tubing with forged ends for superior strength and rigidity, these Whiteline Performance Fixed Rear Lower Control Arms feature Synthetic Dual-Durometer Elastomer MAX-C Bushings with a multi axial composite design and have been completed in a silver powdercoated finish.

    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 Fixed 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.

    Do I need an alignment after installing these?

    DavidG

    • We recommend getting a professional 4-wheel alignment after the installation of these lower control arms to ensure the whole suspension is positioned correctly.

    which is better if you drag race on weekends? The Fixed or adjustable ones?

    DemetriusJ

    • The Whiteline Fixed Rear Lower Control Arms will work well with Mustangs that are close to stock ride height, however the adjustable ones will allow you to correct pinion angle on a lowered Mustang, which is beneficial especially in drag racing.

    My mechanic installed both larger bushings towards the rear but has the wider part facing the drivers side for both, instructions state that wider part should face center of car. He is stating that the alignment is fine even though its not inline with the instructions. What are possible issues with this other than not following the instructions?

    AndrewD

    • If the Whiteline Fixed Rear Lower Control Arms are installed backward, there is a possibility that the alignment will be thrown off.

    What's the difference between these And BMRs non adjustable lower control arms.

    Anonymous

    • Both are a quality option for lower control arms. The main difference is that the Whiteline have a non greasable bushing and the BMR have a grease fitting on them to apply more grease if need be.

    Pros and cons of fixed vs. adjustable rear LCA's? Will these still work on slightly lowered Mustangs (Eibach pro kit, etc.)?

    FirstS197

    • Adjustable: Pros - Better fitment for lowered cars, ability to adjust drive shaft pinion angle, adjustable for racers Cons - More expensive, can be messed up if you don't know what you are doing, for best application needs to be adjusted by suspension expert. Non adjustable: Pros - cheaper, set to factory settings (which is really good for stock), no need to adjust; easier to set up and use, better launch over stock Cons - can improperly adjust the geometry of your suspension with severly lowered cars, can't be adjusted. Honestly, with a 1in drop you should be okay. Especially if you don't know much about how to adjust suspension and what angles you want. Its all about geometry. I would suggest a bump steer kit, but for a small drop, the adjustable LCAs shouldn't be required.

      Good but some NVH..

      Fit and finish was great. what sold me is the non greasable bushings. I also have these with the relocation brackets. No clunks or thumbs but now I hear more road noise and gear noise coming from the rear end. I ended up putting the axle weights back on and it helped some with gear whine. My car has the factory 3.73s so there known to be noisy anyway. But what can you expect from a solid hard bushing. Thats why the factory uses soft rubber bushings to cancel and noise and vibration.

      confidence restored

      Rear was getting a bit wild on me so I decided to replace lower control arms. These fit well with my BMR relocation brackets. Stiffened up the rear, and it is now much more controllable out of the gate. They aren't greasable which is great as long as they don't wear prematurely. Time will tell. As of today 5 stars

      Great Chassis Upgrade

      I replaced the adjustable lower control arms that were on the car previously for this Whiteline set. I had clunking issues and overall excessive NVH issues from the other set of LCAs. The moment I started driving on this set of LCAs I could tell the difference. I am very picky when it comes to feel and chassis set up and these are great! They allow for a "like stock" ride feel; i.e. they are not harsh, but they provide a great benefit over the stock LCAs from Ford, due to their stiffer tubing construction. These are the LCAs you are looking for if you DD your car or want a like stock feel but with the traction benefit.

      Got to have upgrade

      Simple install. Hardest part was getting the car up on jackstands and getting bolts to proper torque in that tight space. Might be losing my mind but with the installation of the LCAs and Whiteline adjustable panhard bar, I swear my steering feedback has improved such that the response during side to side transitions in straight line is more quicker and more stable.

      Whiteline Rear Lower Control

      I specifically wanted this style of control arm that had the rubber bushing and not the poly. Previous set of control arms needed constant attention and grease. With these rubber mounts, no grease needed. I will say it's a bit softer ride, but I'm actually enjoying less harshness and noise. The tubular design is stronger and better looking than the stock stamped steel arms. A little pricey for what they are, but I think worth the swap.

      Took more to setup then the actual install. Then will work on the watts link kit, to see how well the car is planted and how well it will handle.

      One of the best mods you can do..

      Installing the control arms was a fairly straightforward process. I was able to do it in about an hour and I couldn't be more happier with the results. The car feels so much more planted in the ground in the wheel hop is almost nothing now. Definitely a must do mod.

      Lower control arms

      As any Mustang owner knows, wheel hop with sticky tires is awful. Removed factory lower control arms and installed the Whiteline lowers. Very affordable and easy to install. Less than an hour. Absolutely eliminates wheel hop. Also noticed the the rear end stays well planted and feels tight in turns. Definitely recommend, you won't be disappointed!

      Planted in Kansas

      I followed the supplied instructions and the installation was very easy. I notice a small increase in ride firmness and noise from the back but no squeaks or noises from the control arms, just differential noise. My wife and I drove 600 miles after install and it was still very acceptable as far as comfort. The car feels much more solid in corners and during acceleration and it really hooks up a lot better. I still get some wheel hop on slick surfaces if I really get on it but much better than before. For the cost it's a great value and well worth the time and effort!
