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.

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.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service.
