Product Description

SVE Tubular Rear Upper & Lower Control Arm Kit

These rear upper and lower control arms for 1979-2004 Mustang are a quick and cost-effective way to improve the looks and performance of your Mustang's suspension. This rear lower control arm kit includes the proper inner bushing sleeves & installation hardware for the lower control arms to fit both 1979-1998 & 1999-2004 applications.

New Heavy Duty Design

These control arms have been revamped to sustain higher horsepower applications. The welds are beefier and stronger than ever before! The bushings are made from a natural rubber compound to perform great yet offer a smooth ride over poly bushings. The SVE control arms are designed to provide maximum strength and built from heavy wall tubular steel with durable welds. They come complete with a jet black finish and natural rubber compound bushings. This rear control arm kit comes complete with class 8.8 hardware for an easy & complete installation.

Installation Note

- Bushings must be fully coated in the proper lubricant before installing the control arms.
- Upper 12mm Bolts should be torqued to 60 lb-ft (79-04)
- Lower 12mm bolts should be torqued to 60 lb-ft (79-98)
- Lower 14mm bolts should be torqued to 90 lb-ft (99-04)

Assembly

These SVE Control Arms are NOT assembled. Due to the difference between the 1979-1998 & 1999-2004 bushings & sleeves, you will need to assemble them according to your application. Don't worry though! Sets for both applications are included with these control arms.

FAQ

Q: Do they fit 1979-2004 Convertible Mustangs?
A: Yes!

Q: Are they strong enough to allow removal of the quad shocks?
A: Yes!

Q: Do they come with grease fittings?
A: No.

Q: Why are grease fittings not included?
A: The particular bushings included in this kit are engineered specifically so that they do not require added grease.

Q: How much grease should I apply to the bushings?
A: A generous amount of the included grease should be applied to all of the bushings.

Q: What grease should I use before I install these control arms?
A: The grease included with the kit.

Q: How much horsepower will these support?
A: Supports up to 400 horsepower.

Q: Will they work on my lowered Mustang?
A: Yes!

Q: Do these control arms prevent wheel hop?
A: The bushing material included with these arms are stiffer than the stock rubber bushings. The arms are also much stronger than stock stamped arms. The included bushings and stronger arms both help to eliminate the flex that leads to wheel hop. In most cases you can replace your stock control arms with these and reduce or eliminate wheel hop issues, even if the quad shocks are removed.

Application

- Fits 1979-1998 - V6, GT, & Cobra
- Fits 1999-2004 - V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, Saleen, Roush & solid axle swapped Cobra.


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.

    I purchased these because I ordered a set of 18x10 wheels and needed to remove my quad shocks on my foxbody for correct fitment. Not thinking it was going to make a difference on how my car rode, it's great! So much more smooth with bumps in the road. I lowered my car with eibach sportlines, and had bad bad suspension travel. I felt every bump and was almost embarrassing to have people in the car. Now with these new upper and lower control arms it's smooth, no more rough ride and now just time to upgrade my shocks and struts! Thanks LMR for another great product!

    I bought this kit about 2 weeks ago. Finally got around to putting them on yesterday. Everything fit great, easy to install maybe 2 hours. I changed out my axle mount bushing along with this kit. Huge inprovment over stock worn out parts and looks great under the car. Highly recommend

    5 Stars   Not bad at all.
    By on 2/29/2016
    I heard negative reviews at first, saw that they revamped production of the control arms. Since my car won't see the track I went ahead and ordered these. They fit perfect and tightened up the rear. I can't believe what difference it makes. I had the original bushings and arms.. If you plan on racing your Car at the track or using some slicks, buy a better set like UPR or MM. These are a much better upgrade over stock.

    5 Stars   Major Improvement, but Need to Update Guide
    By on 1/5/2016
    These control arms improved the ride quality on my 1990 Mustang coupe. The Mustang is now less wiki wiki and more vroom vroom. The install guide video needs to be updated because there are bolts in the kit that are different sizes now and I had to reuse two bolts for the lower control arms where they meet the rear axle due to the supplied bolts being too short.

    5 Stars   Really helped!
    By on 2/29/2016
    Having ordered several parts from LMR over the years, I decided to order these to remedy an issue with my rear tires wearing badly on the inside edges. The reviews were favorable, and the price was great (plus LMR had a sale going on), so I thought I would give them a shot. They fit great, and I really liked the fact that they came with bushings for the 79-98 cars, as well as for the 99-04 cars, since my 1998 has a 2004 rear axle. The online tutorial really helped, too! Total install time using only hand tools (in the rain, no less) was about five hours, since I messed with some other stuff while I was under there. My only issue is that the bolts for attaching the rear end of the lower control arms to the axle housing are barely long enough. I like to have 2-3 threads sticking out past the nut, but the bolts are just barely flush with the end of the nylon nut insert. I may replace these bolts with some longer ones, but other than that, I am completely satisfied, once again, with my purchase from LMR!!!!

    1 Stars   You get what you pay for
    By on 6/16/2016
    Image uploaded by Brett L. Figured I would give these a try as they are half the cost of anything comparable.
    These are about a 1/8 inch to narrow on the axle housing end and will not fit over stock or poly bushings, might work if you had spherical bearings.
    Was told by LMR that I should pry them open, sounds like a good way to make them unusable and unreturnable.

    These will be going back and exchanged for something made in the USA.
    From LMR.com: Brett,

    We apologize that you ran into an issue with this part. We would never advise a solution for you that would, in turn, take away your return opportunity.

    Did not come with new hardware. Had to use old bolt sleeves in the bushings and the bushins swelled out making them nearly impossible to install. Took 2 days and alot of hammering. Pain in the butt!!!!!

    3 Stars   Jacked Up the Back!
    By on 10/7/2015
    Image uploaded by ted e. I really didn't want these but the guys at LMR told me I would love the results. Well I did. So much though that I wish I bought some higher end ones. You get what you pay for and these are the low end Chinese models. I have a press and lift so installation was not as bad as it could have been but still a pain. 3.5 hours. I bought front suspension goodies too, but left them off so I cold just review these only. I did add new rear KYB shocks too. The car is on rails now. It really does handle a lot better. I would just say if you do want these, it may be worth getting a better brand. They might even make handling that much better.
    I lowered the front of my car to match the back. Sagging fox body....right? Turns out it is not the stock springs that sag. It is all the old rubber in the control arms. My back fenders went from 27" to 281/4"! Now I need to pull it all apart and lower the rear springs. It looks like a jacked up 70s Nova!

    4 Stars   Good, but
    By on 2/27/2016
    Control arms look good, but too many scratches on the arms, could use better quality control. Biggest gripe, the supplied grease for the bushings not enough.
    LMR says "A generous amount of the included grease should be applied to all of the bushings." There is not enough supplied for that. Called LMR about the
    grease, told me to use lithium grease.....well turns out I should have used marine
    grease. So I have the wrong grease on one of the arms. I like the arms, but.....

    By on 3/8/2016
    I bought this kit maybe 2 years ago, installed it. Car hasn't been driven maybe 1500 miles since. I put lowering springs in this weekend and the front bushings in the lower control arms are shot. Come to find out, there's and upgrade that I had to buy to correct this. Should not have had to replace the bushings already. I used the supplied grease in the kit also. I've spent a lot of money with Lmr and everything else has been reliable thus far but this bushing issue kinda ticks me off.

    5 Stars   New ride
    By on 10/28/2015
    Bought these a few weeks ago and had them installed two weeks ago. I waited to write a review until I could get a real feel for these control arms. Wow, what a difference they have made in the ride quality of my 93 Coupe with 173,000 miles. The rear suspension is significantly tighter and it rides like a totally different car. Also replaced the rear spring Isolators, which caused the rear to rise up. They have since settled and the rear is back down like before.

    4 Stars   Great price and product
    By on 9/8/2016
    Great product. I did struggle with getting the bushings together. I ended up getting another tube of PTFE grease made by superlube because the little pack wasn't enough.
    Pro tip:
    1) Use lots of grease
    2) Put the bushings in first then hardware
    3) 4 bushings are shorter than the others, they go to the uppers

    I purchased sve control arms about month ago. They where easy to install but had trouble getting old control arms out. Only problem is now I can hear my rear gears whining from where I had 4.10s put in. Other than that no more feeling like my rear end is gonna come out every time I hit a bump.

    3 Stars   Okay, but....
    By on 4/10/2016
    I bought these a few months back and had a shop install them for me, since they were doing some other things. The car did ride better with these installed, but I was replacing the stock ones from a 23 year old car. The only bad things I wanted to mention that they are not made in USA when it seems that all the others are) and I had HORRIBLE wheel hop after the quad shocks were removed (the quad shocks were removed AFTER these control arms were installed). I guess this is a classic example of you get what you pay for.
