Idler Arms

Your Ford Mustang’s steering system is one of the most complex components of your entire muscle car. The steering system features crucial parts within the Mustang’s interior, the axles, and of course, the wheels & tires. Though all of these parts are scattered throughout their different locations on the car, they are able to collaborate, thanks in large part to the Mustang pitman arms. Mustang pitman arms are responsible for converting the rotational motion of the sector shaft into linear motion, which will cause the car to steer either to the left or the right.

While the Pitman arms play a prominent role in the car’s steering system, they can’t turn the vehicles all by themselves, and will require the support of adjacent Mustang steering parts in order to complete the circular motion. That is where the Mustang idler arms come into play! Ford Mustang idler arms mimic the actions of the Mustang pitman arms, while providing pivoting support for the passenger’s side of the vehicle.

Though they are attached to the opposite side of the center link as the Mustang pitman arms, the Mustang idler arms play a large role in transferring the motion of the steering wheel to the center link, the tire rods, and eventually, the front wheels. The Mustang idler arms are essentially reflections of the Ford Mustang pitman arms, but come complete with the necessary pivoting function required to provide support to the passenger’s side of the vehicle.

While they are generally not worked as hard as their driver-side counterparts, the Mustang idler arms are actually more susceptible to damage than the pitman arms. Because of the parts’ pivoting function, the Ford Mustang idler arms will experience a great deal of wear and tear over the years, and as a result, could rapidly lose some of its necessary lubrication. Driving around with worn out or damaged Mustang idler arms can be detrimental not only to your car’s steering capabilities, but to your Mustang suspension system as well.
