Mod bug strikes again on 05 Mustang GT

Another round of mods have been ordered and its all your guys fault again. STLwagon again influenced my decision and I just ordered CHE Lower control arms(black). I also am adding some interior bling in the form of SilverHorse Racing Billet climate control knobs and Billet mirror control switch. I had UPR cimate knobs but the illumination didnt work at all. This was the first mod for my car that I was dissappointed in. The UPR knobs look incredible but not light at night.
ANy tips for installing the control arms as Im gonna do it myself in my Dads garage. I know that you must mark the ride height on the shocks and do one arm at a time. Are there any more tips? Do you have to buy new fastners? Do the arms come with supplied lube? I have a Haynes repair manual so I know the torque to tighten each fastener. Any help or tips are welcome and appreciated. Since Im at 13.408 do you think these arms will finally let me into the 13.3's? Ive had good 60' times but have never had a great one.

You made a good choice with CHE... Come's with directions printed in color with pictures/step by step, and lube, along with an application brush so you dont have to get your fingers greasy! The torque specs are in the instructions and I think if I can remember correctly are 129ft-lbs.

New bolts and nuts are recommended, but I used the stock hardware over again and havent had any problems... The bolts/nuts can be ordered through ford for around $15-30, its not a big deal.

The will make a noticable gain in traction, I did the UCA/LCA kit all at once from CHE and I was amazed at how hard my car pushed into the ground instead of what useto feel like "skipping" on the surface :hihi:

It is 129 lb-ft and you should get new bolts. If not, hit them with red thread locker.
