  Best Handling Combo Pack!
By on 8/20/2013
I just recently installed these a few days ago along with my 4.10s. I was contemplating on whether that price was worth it, if it was to cheap. I just figured since all the other brands go with the same style and bushing, how could these be different. after I installed my gears and control arms, Maaaaaaaaaan did the car hook! You just pinned to the seat! Turns are sooo much better! I havent had a single wheel hop yet with these so far, cant wait to run these at the track! Really glad I went with this purchase, and for that price, its a steal!

  Handles and looks great!
By on 9/9/2013
I was wondering how the product would handle my driving and all I have to say is, I am very pleased with my purchase. Installation can be a bit difficult at first due to the rusting on the original control arms bolts/nuts but over all, I completed the install in about 3-4 hrs. Definitely recommend!

  Excellent for price
By on 2/14/2014
I bought a set of these for my 88 GT and they were an easy install. Price is right and and fitment is excellent. Handling wise it seemed to help a little and they do a great job at keeping the wheels planted. My neighbor also has an 88 GT and liked them so much that he ordered a pair for his also. My only complaint is they do not include new isolators. If yours is like mine, all original, than I would definately order new isolators if you order these. All in all, a great product for an unbeatable price.

  Why Latemodel Rocks...!!
By on 6/24/2014
My first Set I wasn't happy with-Bad Welds, Crummy paint-Touched up with a different color...But Mike Called me 2 days Later and explained that they'd had an Issue with the old supplier-specifically on the quality issue-(see my pic and Review above)...But Mike made it right, quickly sending out a replacement set(Black ones) that were MUCH Nicer quality !! Sweet welds and nice Black Powdercoat ! The new models don't have Grease Zerks as I was told they are un-necessary if installed right with the supplied NON_PETROLEUM lube. Lube up the bushings/Sleeves/Frame Mounting points liberally and install. NICE !!! These new models have the bushings in packages that you lube then put into the arms (real easy, btw) that way you KNOW they're lubed right. They made a huge difference in my car with left/right rear sway and that mysterious clunk I heard once in a while was gone too !! No wheel hop, No more Quad Shock, No more issues. Thanks Mike. In this day and age, Quality service after the sale, proper follow up and just plain making it right after a problem are why I'll ALWAYS use and recommend LateModel !!! Nice to have a USA company follow through on their promises. I'm writing this so you can disregard my previous review on the old ones.
Thanks Again- Johnny NH

  Bad Paint,Messy welds-Cheap, but fit fine...
By on 6/12/2014
Image uploaded by John S. Let me start by saying-These ain't made in USA-they're from China. so, there's your first 'quality' clue...The "powdercoat"- (more likely paint) was awful, more pink than red and the welds/scratches were touched up with a different color red spray paint-touch ups over messy welds. They fit fine, and nobody is really gonna see them, but C'mon !! I would gladly pay another $25.00 for some quality control ! The upper control arms have a weak looking weld-and there is history of these welds breaking on this model. See reviews below, and Latemodel will back you up on these broken welds. The upper arms need a weld bead inside of the box end(Axle side). I did this before installing, grind off paint and lay a good bead inside...The lowers seem to be better and they do have good bushings in them, Energy Suspension I think. I'm not totally disrespecting these, -you get what you pay for-but I want folks to know. Also, Latemodel-Can you clarify why it says lower arms are "Side Specific" in the directions when they measure EXACTLY the same...? the Sway brackets/spring cups and length are all identical...and you state side specific , yet the arms are NOT marked in any way...so do we guess?. I'm sure you can remedy for us. I love just about everything Latemodel sells and been happy with all of it-except these- that said, they are installed and working fine,because I had to swap my old ones out (torn bushings), but I wished these were better quality. I will give a follow up on these after a month or so. Hate to say it, but these fall short of your usual stuff. I'll still shop here though, because you guys treat us right and stand behind your stuff.
Thanks- Johnny NH

  Direct Fitment
By on 5/10/2014
Install was relatively easy, it can be done in your drive way with your own hand tools, but make sure you have a breaker bar handy! I put in the lowers only for now and I can definitely say there is a difference in ride quality, but not so much that it blows your mind. Perhaps when I put in the uppers it will make the big noticeable difference and I am sure it will. All I can say is be patient and take your time if you are doing it at home, do not get frustrated and make sure you have some PB blaster handy!

  Better grip,launch,burn outs
By on 6/4/2014
Good,quality, easy to install as long as you have someone to help you and power/or air tools. A shop with a jack would make things easier so you won't have to struggle as much. Took me about 2 hours to do. All the bolts fit fine and and control arms are a lot more sturdier and just plain better than the stock ones. No comparisons what so ever. For the price you can't beat Latemodel Restoration Supply. No one can. Thanks Latemodel!

  Good price but...
By on 3/28/2014
I just received my control arms yesterday and was a little disappointed. The control arms were all scuffed up like they had been installed before and there was no instructions or grease included like stated. They look well built but not very impressed with the scuffs all over and missing items.
From LatemodelRestoration.com: We apologize for the inconvenience, one of our reps will be in contact with you shortly. We will get you fixed up!

  great parts even better customer service
By on 6/10/2014
Image uploaded by Bradley M. I bought these to install with my battle boxes. The install was extremely easy and straight forward. Only issue I had was the directions didn't say if the lower control arms got the 99-04 bushing sleeves in both of the bushings or just one, I watched the video and it said they are installed body. So being unsure I called and within minutes I had a rep on the phone who provded me with the correct answer that they go in both bushings. Thank you for such a great product and even better customer service.

By on 7/27/2014
Great part that was a must when I redid my suspension. Pretty simple installation, but the directions say side specific but that doesn't matter because they are exactly the same. Only reason why I gave 4 stars is because one of the grease fittings was broke on the lower control arm. I didn't call or complain because I was almost done with the car and just wanted to get her back on the road lol But overall is a must!!

  Good product NO INSTRUCTIONS
By on 8/31/2014
I liked the control arms but the worst thing is there where no instructions and It was such pain not knowing what is needed. First the kit comes with three sets of bolts and no idea what ones are needed until all the arms are off and the bushings there are two kinds that are needed for the different arms and that was fun figuring it out, many attempts later got them all in. But after all the pain the arms work great and look good.

By on 7/29/2014
The control arms fit great no trouble putting them in a better launch off the line. The only thing wrong was they came in spot painted which didnt matter to me because I painted over them and the upper control arms got an extra weld on the inside of the boxed side just because I think it needed them this is the second set I have gotten from here they work great.

  Good quality part, difficult install!
By on 7/7/2014
This part is good quality and fits good, but if you plan on putting these control arms on at home I would caution you a little. Removing the old lower control arms is a difficult task if the bolts have seized to the bushings as mine did. The required a sawzall to cut them out, which was a huge PITA.

Control arms were great quality, and did the job. Installation was easy. Make sure you buy a set of poly isolators. Also, if your planning on lowering your car I would do springs at the same time. I'm happy with them though. Virtually eliminated all wheel hop on my 91 LX.

Fast shipping compared to competitors, over all a perfect kit, comes with new hardware to replace the worn out old one. A must buy if you are trying to fit 17X10 wheels in the rear, kit allows you to remove the quad shock and still stay planted during launches eliminating wheel hop. Be ready to use a big pry bar to install the upper arms as you will need to shift the rear end forward.

  Good arms, bad hardware
By on 7/18/2014
These are very good control arms for the money, a definite upgrade over stock. However, if I were to do the installation again, I'd take the nuts and bolts which come with this kit and throw them in the trash. I'd either buy new ones, and I think that using the old bolts would even be a better option. Two of them stripped out before I was able to torque them to spec.... they weren't even close to the 100 ft-lbs before the threads started peeling off. Ridiculous.

Bottom line, yes, I would recommend, but a definite NO on using the supplied hardware.

I do not have to worry about the axle shifting at all! Great quality, great bushings, great price!!! Very well pleased with these arms and the quickness of the delivery. If your looking to replace your old bushings just buy these saw some money and get an upgrade as well when you put these on. Couldn't be happier. Great job Latemodel Restoration!

i searched & searched the web for the best possible price/quality scenario for control arms. i was hesitant on purchasing the SVE's because of a couple bad reviews. after making the purchase for the complete control arm kit and seeing it first hand let me tell you that they are quality. the welds are perfect and the bushings are better then stock. for my application they are a perfect fit. i recommend for someone who wants to hit the car shows but also make it to the strip a couple times a season.

  Great Parts !
By on 7/30/2014
First off, great price and fast shipping as usual from Late Model Resto !!
A few minor complaints,
1-no instructions
2-no lube packs
3-one of the zerk fittings was broken off
4-bolts too short
Now onto why none of this matters ! I'm putting these on a 1980 Capri Ghia that I'm restoring/customizing. This may be why the bolts are too short, but having a garage full of 30 plus years of excess hardware I had plenty of grade 8 stuff to use. The lube is easily found at the local parts store. Broken zerk fitting, again LOTS of excess stuff around. Lastly, no instructions, please, the video on the Late Model site is WAY better than any simple printed paper.
Now all that said, these are some REALLY well made parts, and installation was relatively simple. (of course that was AFTER the nightmarish hell of removing the originals which have been in the car since Oct. of 79 !! lets just say cut-off tools, air hammers, BFH's, and LOTS of cussing were involved )
At this writing the lower arms are in and the uppers should be in by tonight after dinner.
BIG THANX to LMR, without you guys this project would still be in the "planning stage" instead of over half done !!

  SVE Tubular Control Arms
By on 2/10/2014
Got it on Tuesday and had it in and driving around on Wednesday, and I'm not a hugely experienced mechanic. Really tightened up my sloppy rear end. Get some deep well sockets (18 and 19mm) and some replacement bolts for your rear sway bar. On to the front end!

Very easy to install. Much better built then stock. No fitment issues everything bolted right up. The only downside is that the grease fittings are very fragile. Take care when installing the arms

When these arrived, 2 of the grease fittings had been broken off at the surface. I immediately called late model Resto and they gave me a credit for both. Couldn't be happier with these! Great product and great service as always.

  Buy different control arms!
By on 9/24/2014
My control arm kit arrived with (9) of one side bushing and (3) of another. Upon further inspection, the bushings were obviously not polyurethane (as they used to be advertised). When I called to complain, I was told I needed to upgrade to a better kit if I wanted poly, even though that was how they were advertised. They finally agreed to provide poly bushings as advertised, but it took over a week.

Unless you are looking for the tubular look with stock ride characteristics (show car?!), I would not waste the money. They told me the rubber is "stiffer than stock", but not according to my hand durometer.

On the bright side, LMR corrected the website so it may not happen again.

  Good product but....
By on 8/7/2014
I will say that these arms are very well made. They look excellent and and the new bolts were nice. BUT...It really needs instructions. I can see a first time person getting confused very fast with all the bolts. You see the 94-98 rearends use a slightly smaller bolt. I've done this several times so I picked up on the extra bolts and sleeves. Once I got them installed they fit very nicely. And a quick bounce test, gave no squeaks. Remember to put a little grease on the bushing faces to prevent noise. Test drive coming after I get the engine back in.

  Nice and tight
By on 9/16/2014
I bought for my 351 swapnin my 1980 mustang. I upgraded to the 8.8" rear end and these fit perfectly. Nice tight fit. Will update when I see how they perform. The only negative I can say is they did not come with instructions. Now it doesn't take a rocket scientist to put these together but they would still be nice. Also I have seen other people reviews mention a grease fitting. Mine did not come with a grease fitting nor were they made to accept one

I bought these a week ago but just installed lowers and what a difference an old car has been reborn!!
Just want you to know they are an easy install but have an impact gun ready and handy after 21 years my 1993 LX hardware was rust and they were a pain to get hardware off that is why lowers were only installed. But I will get uppers on soon and have an impact ready but with only lowers on ride has improved!

By on 8/11/2014
I installed these a couple days ago along with some new lowering springs and shocks. Great improvment, I can't belive I havent ordered these sooner. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is they were a little scratched up on arrival and did not contain any grease or instructions. I would recommend these and don't forget new Isolaters, mine were gone.

I bought these to replace the stock ones on my '92. Lowers look stout. Uppers could be stronger but OK for price. Don't forget to buy new replacement spring isolators and upper axle bushings. Might look at getting some new grade 8 hardware to replace the included bolts too.

  SVE Rear Tubular Control Arms '99 GT Conv.
By on 6/24/2014
These are a good bang for the buck that these cars need. They are fairly easy to install (if you aren't doing it on standard small jack stands in your driveway). I had to remove the exhaust to access the bolts on the car side of the lower control arms. Plus, there were no instructions in the box to help sort the bushings provided, and no grease fittings as described. However, it rides better, has reduced wheel hop, and I'm not sure yet, but there seems to be more side to side movement when cornering, which I don't like. Hard acceleration in second seems to create a rumble in the driveline, so I may put the quad shocks back on and look into a panhard bar to stop any side to side motion and roll.
