Product Description

J&M's street tuned rear lower control arms will help keep your 05-14 Mustang's rear end planted even under high RPM launches. Their exclusive design eliminates undesirable handling characteristics of the S197 suspension without compromising on cornering.

J&M then solved the shortcomings of the factory rubber and other aftermarket polyurethane and stiffer rubber bushings. This was accomplished with our Patent Pending 3 piece Poly-Ball bushing combination. By spending countless hours looking and dissecting the geometry and the need of the rear suspension we come out with bind-free bushings set up. Our Patent Pending Poly-Ball bushing combination incorporates a very hard inner polyurethane ball which is surrounded by soft socket outer cups. This combination allows the bushing to articulate like a spherical bearing during cornering but the hard inner ball does not allow the bushing to deflect during acceleration giving you great traction during acceleration like solid bushings but remains completely bind free like a spherical bearing during cornering for great predictable traction in the corners.

Bushing Lubrication
The suspension bushings included with this part can only be lubricated with PTFE grease, also referred to as "Marine Grease". PTFE grease is a very sticky, opaque grease that is water proof and will not degrade the bushing material. If lubed properly at installation, these bushings will not need to be lubricated again. Use of any other grease on these bushings will cause the bushing to fail and any bushing warranty to be voided.

5 Stars   Built like a tank and zero binding
By on 11/16/2015
Just put a set on my GT500 and have had a set on my GT for 5 years now with zero issues. They are extremely solid, the bushing design prevents binding, and the rear stays planted. They do transmit a little more noise so expect that.

5 Stars   FIRM!

Fast shipping, best price. Install was very simple on my 2011 GT. Used a floor jack and two jack stands in my driveway. Took about 1 1/2 hours. Sprayed nuts and threads with liquid wrench day before. Grease is very thick and sticky, use rubber gloves. Ball in the rear was very tight fit, had to press it in with a large C clamp. Rest of the pieces went together easy. Car was 3 years old when I installed these and the bolts came right out, no problem. The J&M LCA are very high quality, no complaints. LCA went right in no problems. Did one side at a time. Rear end is a lot tighter, better traction, no wheel hop. Very satisfied.

3 Stars   Missing pieces
By on 8/15/2015
Just got these to the house opened up the box only to read instructions that say if it's missionary parts that you need to call the company for replacements, this was the first sign of trouble. Foolishly believing that this was just a courtesy note thrown in to be helpful and not a sign of the horrors that would follow, I started to put the first side together. I grabbed the bad of parts and inspected it to ensure all was right. I pulled out the parts for the passenger side and began to put tighter. Remeber to leave some space for air to escape when putting the rear end together because the little ball will trap air and make it very hard to put together. I put this on the car and went back to build the other side, trouble now watching closely over me to laugh in my face at what was about to happen. I grab the metal sleeves that hold the bushings and to my surprise they are the same size, I double check to make sure I am not seeing things because they we all make mistakes but nope same size. Next thought I put the wrong size on the one already on the car, great that means pulling the arm back off. So off it comes only to laughter at me because it was the right size I was just giving the wrong pieces. Now to stop and make a phone call to the company, this leads to an hour of trying to get a hold of someone. Finally a real person answers the phone, horay I have hope again but only for a minute. The voice on the other end of the phone tells me they will send me the past but it will take a few days, a problem that would not happen if I got everything I needed to begin with. So now now here I am waiting for a small piece of metal to arrive in the mail so I can finish my car. I will say for what I did receive the prices look very sturdy and feel like they will do a great job once I can place then on the car. I am only recommending these because they doo seem like good pieces but be warned you might not get everything in one order, check the box for everything when it arrives.

4 Stars   Everything they promised

Image uploaded by brent H. I received these at 7:30pm and had them installed by 9pm. Everything went in easy. If you use the supplied grease, the bushings and ball push in by hand. Put one bushing in, then the ball, then the sleeve for alignment and finally the other bushing. Test drove right after install and had zero noise. Best of all, no wheel hop. These went on my 08 GT500.

These Non Adjustable Lower Control Arms are a serious Bargain, when combined with LCA relocation brackets they will certainly setup your suspension for drag racing and getting those 60 foot times down.

5 Stars   Monstrous Ability To Hook
By on 5/5/2014
Upon purchasing the Lower Control Arms I had not decided which ones to get and was only going off of recommendations from other owners. I decided to get the J&M and it was the best choice by far!

I can hook decently hard and the car pulls much stronger in all gears now. The rear axle does not get jumpy as it used to with stock parts in turns or launching it.

If you have you have sticky tires and gears then get these lower control arms and let the competition see your tail lights!!!!

5 Stars   A different beast
By on 5/29/2014
Got this mod over the week end and I got to say I was impressed with the way the car felt after. Much more stiffer but in a good way I'm dropped 2 inches with apex springs and car finally feels like it should not bouncy its controlled. Combined with adjustable panhard bar. To center your rear diff if lowered. Believe it or not mpg whent up to that's a +.

5 Stars   Effective Suspension Mod!
By on 12/10/2014
Bought these arms during the holiday sale. J&M makes high quality products with great value. Stop light/sign launches feel much more planted. Only downside is slightly more noise transmission into the cabin, but not bad at all for the performance gain.

These were a perfect fit to replace the worn factory arms. The installation was easy and the ride is much improved.
