Stock control arms are marginal at best. Bushing deflection combined with control arm flex creates erratic handling and inconsistent rear end stability when subjected to the added loads of performance driving. BMR’s polyurethane, non-adjustable control arms for your 1999-2004 Mustangs are TIG-welded using heavy-duty 1-5/8" x .120" DOM tubing.
This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. The lower control arms are greasable, 95-durometer internally fluted bushings add a solid, more responsive feel over the stock rubber bushings. The flutes will also direct grease to the outer edge of the bushing, keeping the thrust surface lubricated and ensuring quiet, reliable operation over the life of the bushings.

California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
These high quality BMR control arms are available in your choice of a red or a hammer-tone finish and come ready to install with high quality polyurethane grease-able bushings. This particular set here is going to fit your '99 through 2004 Mustang, but '94 through '98 are also available. For this installation, you'll a jack and jack stands or a lift and a pole jack, a couple of ratchets, 15 millimeter socket, 18 millimeter socket, 21 millimeter socket, pry bar, and Channel locks.
When replacing the rear control arms, whether your talking about replacing the lowers or the uppers, the process is basically the same. Get the car up in the air and do one at a time. We're going to start with the passenger's side rear. First step with the lowers is to get the rear sway bar out of the way, so pull the ABS clip up off of this, slide it up out of the way, and remove these two bolts. Then I want to get jack in place and support the rear control arm. Control arm's supported, now we can remove the main bolt for the back of the control arm. Now we can carefully lower down the control arm; spring's going to come down with it. The tension off, we can move it aside, pull it down, remove the spring.
To get the front bolt off can be a little bit trickier. Many times, depending on exhaust, your muffler might be in the way and you may have to remove it. Going to try, actually, to sneak a wrench in here and we should be able to get it off this way. I want to make sure the inside here, the control arm bushing mounts, is clear and ready breath. Going to put a little grease in there. Now, I'll put the front of the control arm up into place and reinstall the bolt. The bolt through there and I'm going to put the nut back on. Just get it started. We actually aren't going to tighten it down until the other side's also in place. I'm going to put the spring back into place. Grab our jack and lift it up in. There's a good possibility the rear may have shifted a little bit, so you may have to grab a pry bar here just to help you line everything up.
Now, what we're going to do is actually left the suspension from the center. Its basically going to simulate what the rear's going to be like when it has load on it and then we're going to tighten everything down. You can tighten them down all the way, but there's a possibility you could create a binding issue with the control arm, so this is a lot safer way to do it. Once it's tightened down you want to repeat the process on the other side. Once you complete the process on the other side, before we can reinstall our sway bar, this tab here has to be bent straight or you can cut it off. Either way.
Once everything's tightened down we can reinstall our rear sway bar. It's going to install just like the factory did, inside of each control arm. Make sure you don't forget the brackets for the e brake cables. Just get all the bolts started before you tighten it down. Once everything's tightened up and you carefully reinstall the ABS line and your installation is finished.
High quality lower control arms like these BMR's are a great choice for performance applications or even for a daily driver like this when the stock parts are pretty much worn out. As far as maintenance goes, the zerk fittings on these are nice because down the road if you have any kind of noise it's easy to add some more grease to them. Installation's not too bad. Take around three hours total, so you'll be back on the road in no time.
