Description: Global West's super duty rear lower control arms are designed as a factory replacement unit. They are intended for applications that require the utmost control. Drag racing, road racing, autocross, and street performance cars will benefit by using our super duty rear control arms.


Part# TBF-1 (pictured left) utilizes spherical aircraft bearings and DEL-A-LUM (pronounced della-loom) Bushings to control
rear end lateral movement as well as fore and aft location.
TBF-1's allow full rear end articulation without bind, making them superior over any polyurethane based control arm.
TBF-1's also eliminate the need for a panhard rod because lateral location is already provided by our unique control arm design.


We manufacture 3 different types of rear control arms and modify stock units for special racing classes.
All of which we have used for years. The following chart will provide you with correct information in order for you to make the right decision.

Pros: Great handling improvement
Cons: a bit noisy but comes with the territory

I really have no complaints, even though they are a little noisy.
The change in the rear end is amazing, the axle actually stops moving sideways over bumps. It improves handling 100%.

Pros: lateral axle location, strong launches
Cons: increased noise

I agree with GTRaptor, these definitely improve rear handling in corners. The rear end becomes much more predicatable and launches harder. I would consider thes arms almost essential for any Mustang that does not have any other lateral location.

I have been autocrossing on these for about four years and they have held up with no problems.

The only pseudo-drawback is that these arms are not compatible with Panhards since they will cause bind by conflicting with the arc of the panhard bar. Only an issue if you plan to install a panhard later.
