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.

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

Can you put it with a panhard installed?

BryanC

  • You are indeed able to install both lower control arms and a panhard bar at the same time.

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.

    Great mod

    After doing a little research trying to improve some traction issues, I decided to get a set of LCAs. For the price the Whitelines looked to be the best bang for the buck and were maintenance free. Upon arrival getting the box off the front porch I was already surprised at how much these things weigh. I must say they definitely could have been packaged better. The box was very beat up, to the point where it chipped the finish off of one of the edges on the arm, but no one sees it anyways. Taking them out of the box you immediately can tell the quality of these arms is great. They are seriously heavy duty and the bushing are far better than the stock ones. Install took no time at all on my back in the garage. Hardest part was getting the bolts torqued to 130lbs. Fitment was perfect. First turn out of my neighborhood I could feel the rear was stiffer. I didn't expect to feel it in the turns like I do. Traction is still an issue, but the wheel hop I had is gone! And the first couple times I put on the brakes it also surprised me. There was a very noticeable difference in that as well. I highly recommend these control arms to anyone looking for a set. Only thing I wish is that they had a company name or logo on them. Like I said though, no one sees them anyways.

    Cost effective improvements, fast.

    These Mustangs have way too much wheel hop; anything would be an improvement. Installing the whiteline lower control arms did provide relief from what I can tell lunching in 2 gear with 3.73 out back. They weigh 2.5 (each) more than the OEM webbed ones, plus being made in Australia is just cool.

    Increased handling performance!

    As expected, another high quality part from Whiteline. Installation was straight-forward. Make sure to do one side at a time to make it easier to align the arms in order to get the bolts through. Lift the car as much as you can to get enough space for leverage required to torque bolts to 130 ft/lbs. Car launches straight every time, and got rid of the annoying squeak coming from the factory control arms. The control arms did increase the amount of road noise transmitted inside but that may be because I also have a Whiteline Panhard bar, RTR Panhardbar brace and Steeda torque box frame connectors but man you can really feel the difference!

    Rock Solid Control Arms

    I am VERY happy with these control arms and have always been a fan of Whiteline. They make GREAT products. I had them installed with Whiteline Relocation Brackets because I am lowered 1.5" front and rear. I also Have the Whiteline Adjustable Panhard bar and Panhard Brace. I could not ask for a better set up with my 4.10 gears. The car stays planted (no wheel hop) and tracks straight through the launch. If you are not lowered these control arms alone will make a HUGE difference over the weak stock control arms.

    solid arms

    The arms seem to be much stronger than stock and the bushing design is impressive. Installed the arms in just a few min. Straight forward and easy to do with just jack stands. Also installed the Whiteline upper arm with mount and my complaint is a huge increase in noise, so much so that it seemed like the suspension was coming loose. Have retorked the bolts twice to try to ease my mind about the noise, but no change. Hope that installing boom mat in trunk and under seat will solve noise issue.

    Great replacement part!

    I had these lower control arms shipped overnight due to an unexpected broken factory control arm and was impressed yet again by American Muscle's prompt and well packaged shipping. The part itself is a great control arm, very sturdy tubular design with a very attractive "non greaseing" bushing that has not given me a hint of noise yet. Not extremely impressed with the handling difference from the factory arms but a great replacement part no doubt

    Control arms fit well with a slight increase in transmitted noise, but that is to be expected. The main thing is that they eliminated the wheelhop.

    Major improvement

    I purchase these to replace a set of SR performance LCA's that I put out on the last year that had already failed and had no warranty on them. These wentry in extremely smooth, with no hangups or issues. Definitely fix the issues I was having due to a bad bushing, and definitely firmed up the back end.

    control arms

    Be sure to remove the rear tires if you are not using a lift. It will make the install go mush faster. First side 35 minutes - tire on - second side 14 minutes - tire off. Make sure to torque them to 130!!!! I removed the old arms with a half inch drive ratchet (12 inch). And use blue lock tite.

    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!
