Product Description

These rear upper and lower control arm kits for 1979-2004 Mustang are a quick and cost effective way to improve the looks and performance of your Mustang's suspension. Wait, did we just say 1979-2004? Indeed! 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. The bushing sleeves installed in the lower control arms out of the box are for 1979-98.

They are designed to provide maximum strength and built from heavy wall tubular steel with durable welds. They come complete with a brilliant red finish and greasable Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings. This rear control arm kit comes complete with Grade 8 hardware for an easy & complete installation.

Warranty Note - The use of any grease other than urethane bushing grease (most commonly seen in small packets labeled by Energy Suspension or Prothane) will void the warranty of your control arm bushings. Bushings must be fully coated in the proper lubricant before installing the control arms.

  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.

  Wonderful Upgrade
By on 2/24/2014
I purchased these control arms in an effort to improve my 60ft. times at the strip. The arms were easy to install and have stiffened my rear suspension greatly. I don't know of another upgrade as simple and affordable that will give you as much improvement.

These arms are really good quality and decent for the price! I'm a man on a tight budget and these are great alternative to some of the other brands pricey control arms. If I had another mustang I would buy these arms for it.

  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!

Thus is the second set of these control arms I have bought, a set for my 91 and this set for my 94. They fit perfectly and the ride is awesome. Increased handling and helped a lot with wheel hop. Outstanding product and they look great on the car.

The zerk fittings are nice, suggest getting a tube of silicone grease for your grease gun. Can be found. Don't use typical petroleum based grease on poly.
From LatemodelRestoration.com: Amen brother! No petro grease on poly bushings.

  perfect fit but difficult
By on 2/10/2014
I bought these three weeks ago and installed them last weekend. the lower control arms went in easily but I could not get my old uppers out so I did not install them. Some instructions on how Ford does the upper control arms would be awesome. However the lowers have really changed how myr handle. I have so much more control now. I recommend these parts to anyone.

  Best bang for the buck!
By on 3/13/2014
Just bought these a couple of weeks ago. I've got the lower control arms on but not had time to put the uppers on yet. These control arms give the car a much more positive feel in the corners. 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!

  can't beat it
By on 3/17/2014
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.

  Money Well Spent!
By on 3/14/2014
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.

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!
