Need to reduce wheel hop and improve traction? The Steeda adjustable upper 3rd link for 2011-2014 S197 Mustangs gives you the ability to set your pinion angle and eliminate the torque deflection associated with the factory piece. This upper 3rd link uses our track proven three piece bushing package on the axle end to help reduce axle wind up, wheel hop, and allow proper articulation without deflection for improved handling and cornering stability. Steeda's three piece bushing package will not increase NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) keeping the factory's quiet, smooth operation unlike competitor's pieces. Direct replacement for the factory original bolting into the original factory location. Our 3rd link is a double adjustable design allowing you to make adjustments without removing the arm from the vehicle.
This spacer is designed to fix the problem with the OEM upper link. At the attachment point for the upper link to the chassis mount Ford uses a 14mm bolt, but the opening in the mount is 16mm. This is not typically a problem with the OEM mount as it uses a soft hydra mount bushing to soften this. But once an aftermarket upper is installed with a urethane bushing can transmit this noise or clunk. This space can be installed with all aftermarket upper that still use a 14mm bolt. The stepped spacer takes up the slop and eliminates all noise from the upper. Note, it does work with aftermarket chassis mounts with smaller then 16mm bolt holes.
pretty much does as advertised except the part where it does not increase nvh. i do hear some clanking around when im changing speeds, but im assuming that its just amplified from the rear diff. i checked pinion angle which did change a little after a few hundred miles, so recheck it every so often.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Fixed my problem

Had a vibration issue once I lowered and added LCAs. This fixed the problem. It's a good piece. Install can be a little tricky, but with some patience it works out ok.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!!
