S550 Rear Lower Control Arm Bearings
Replace your weak factory bushings with Steeda's 2015-2018 Mustang rear lower control arm bushing kit! When you launch from a dead stop, the factory rear control arm bushings deflect so much that the rear tires can toe inward over 2 degrees. Steeda's replaces those bushings with a spherical style bearing that greatly reduces deflection and wheel hop. Steeda's unique design does NOT increase NVH (noise,vibration, harshness) and maintains a factory ride quality.
Replacing your factory bushings with this spherical bearing replacement kit will eliminate the alignment change under load as well as create more predictable handling. The new design removes suspension bind that allows it to move more freely which will correct understeer under acceleration. This all works together to reduce wheel hop and ensure your tires hook immediately.
Steeda constructs these bearings from 1018-steel for strength and durability. The bearings are then nickel plated to prevent corrosion. The spherical bearings in this kit are Teflon-lined that provides smooth operation and prevents binding. All of this is designed and manufactured in the USA.
Look, getting these installed requires removing the LCAs, pressing out the old bushings, pressing in the new bearings, and then re-installing the LCAs. It's a gazillion bolts and the process takes forever, disabling the car in the process.
But... the results are totally worth it. The car feels like it was actually bolted together after installing this and while there is some additional "thud" over harsh bumps from the back (similar to if you over-inflated a tire), NVH is unharmed. If you have adjustable shocks like me, you'll have to adjust them as this completely changes the compliance of the rear IRS movement.
My wheel hop is nowhere to be found. Handling feels more stable, with none of that sort of subtle but weird "jitter" or "squirliness" when the car is upset by road imperfections in a turn.
