Eliminate wheel hop and get more traction in your 2005-2014 Mustang with Steeda's billet rear lower control arms. These lightweight arms reduce unsprung weight and allow you to launch harder. With spherical and polyurethane bushings, these control arms reduce deflection and vibration, giving you a better performing suspension for competition or serious street use. These are a heavy duty version of the ST-5554405 control arms and will produce a bit more noise. Pick up a set today to get your S197 performing better than ever!
I put these on my '08 Bullitt about a month ago and have been very happy with them. They are labeled as "hardcore race" parts, but I noticed very little difference in interior noise. If your differential makes noise, I'm sure these parts will amplify it, though. I'm still a long way from 500hp (as in stock), but I wanted the spherical bearing because it lets the axle rotate a lot better than polyurethane does. They were very easy to change out and the instructions clearly stated what needed to be done. I had previously replaced the upper control arm with no noticeable difference in wheel hop (got it at a swap meet for a really good price, otherwise I would have done the lowers first). The lowers definitely cured the wheel hop. I think the combination of polyurethane and spherical bearings makes for a nice street setup. These definitely weren't the cheapest, but I'm glad I chose them. I don't do a lot of reviews, but I thought these were good enough to post something.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Works great, looks good
I called about these and LM said they would have to be shipped from Steeda , I thought maybe a week and a half later I would get them, No, 2 days later I got them and installed them as instructions said. Can fell a little more of the road but hey!!! The blower makes more noise ... Ride fells a lot stiffer .. Can't wait to try at the strip .. You won't go wrong with these.

Testimonial: The best company I have ever dealt with
LRS hands down is doing everything right. Every experience I have ever had with them shows just what an amazing company they are. There is a reason I come back time after time, instead of going to those "other" mustang aftermarket websites. Customer service is the name of their game, and they are winning. It does not matter whether you call, email, forum PM, or go to the actual store, they are always incredibly helpful and enthusiastic. (Getting to see the Cobra R in their showroom was awesome). I'm proud to have the LRS windshield banner on my car, because I know they will always have my back.
"Just a 2 valve" is what I hear consistently. Up until it comes time to actually put up or shut up. This car isn't the typical drag mustang. Its built for the road coarse. Makes a whole whopping 300rw...
