Maximum Motorsports has constructed this pair of heavy duty rear lower control arms to have a spring perch design, which will allow you to easily adjust the height of your Mustang while it is still on the ground. With the help of a heavy-duty weight-jack bolt, you'll be able to raise your ride height up to two inches and lower it as much as an inch. This will help your appearance and performance by compensating for added weight as well as allowing you to fine-tune your height to adjust your instant center, which in turn will increase your anti-squat percentage. You'll also be able to corner your weight to get the optimum handling performance.
Completely made in the USA, these rear lower control arms have a 2" rounded steel tube construction for significantly increased strength and stiffness. Maximum Motorsports then finishes them off with a durable, black powder coating. This pair also comes with the proper mounts that you'll need for the factory-style rear sway bar.
Maximum Motorsports puts a 3-piece urethane bushing at the chassis end that will allow for proper articulation while reducing any deflection. The bushing has a harder center which will prevent fore & aft deflection and a softer outer section which will allow for proper angular motion. They place the urethane bushing on the chassis end instead of the axle end to reduce noise, vibration, harshness and stress to the torque box in the chassis. The axle end has a large spherical bearing that provides similar articulation and freedom of motion, while eliminating deflection.
Not only can these adjustable lower control arms create a more aggressive appearance, but they'll also significantly improve your Mustang's handling and traction performance. By controlling the movement of your rear axle more precisely, you'll be able to hit those hard turns with ease. The reduction of excessive deflection will help the stability of your Pony. These lower control arms will also help you get a firmer launch off the starting blocks. The ability to adjust the instant center will let your optimize your launch and raising the right back corner will increase the weight on that tire which will reduce the amount of tire spin.
*The spring perch on these rear lower control arms will only fit aftermarket springs with the help of an isolator.

Jack: No problem, Bill. For the '79 to '04 cars, we have our heavy duty lower control arm with an adjustable spring perch on it. This model has a spherical bearing in the rear half. It has a 3-piece polyurethane in the front half to allow easy articulation and smooth motion. The adjustable spring perch gives the owner the ability to adjust the right height with a 1/2" ratchet. They just stick it in the bottom of the control arm, and they can raise and lower it easily. This is especially useful if you have a drag race car for instance, and you take it to the strip, and you put large slicks on it, and you need more tire clearance. Or if you're a road racer, an auto crosser, and you drive the car to the track, when you load all your floor jack, jack stands, tires and everything in the car, when you get there you want to have the car low, but during the ride, you want to have enough ride height so the car's not bottoming out. You can raise it up for that, and lower it at the track.
On this side of the display we have our extreme duty lower control arm. This unit has a spherical bearing in the rear like the heavy duty model, but it also has a spherical bearing at the front. The bearing isn't visible on the control arm because there's polyurethane thrust washers used in the front to keep the control arm from rolling when the spring load is applied. This particular model does not have an adjustable spring perch, it has a fixed spring perch. It's a little lighter than the other model, it's a little less expensive, and it can take higher power levels. We offer combinations of extreme duty with adjustable perch or fixed perch, and heavy duty with adjustable perch or fixed perch.
Bill: How's the NVH going to be on the extreme duty by getting rid of that normal front bushing and going into that sleeve?
Jack: That really depends quite a bit on the condition of the car. For example, if you have a full interior car and it's a later Sn95 model, the NVH difference won't be that large because the sound deadening, and the rear seats and so forth will absorb a lot of that energy.
Bill: On a race car you'd probably hear it more, but you can hear everything else anyway.
Jack: Exactly. On a race car it's going to be much louder, but it's irrelevant.
Bill: Jack, we appreciate you coming out today. Thank you for telling us about your products. If you're looking for a high performance suspension for your late model Mustang, make sure you check out our selection of products from Maximum Motorsports.
