Rear lower control arms questions

Im looking to upgrade my rear lower control arms. I am looking for a compromise between performance and road comfort. Both my other cars are set up with full suspension and urethane in place of every stock bushing. So I'm not looking tondo the same to this car. So I'm wondering if anyone has ran the ford racing rear lower control arms? I'm looking to eliminate some of my rear axle movement. I ran at the track today on my drag radials and had no wheel hop but I could feel the rear end shift on my 1-2 shift. So any experience shared with these would be greatly appreciated.

Check out the J&M's. I got the "street" version and they really aren't a compromise. The poly ball bushings tighten things up but do not add binding when you turn. The increase in NVH is extremely minor. The price through American Muscle is $25 less than the FRPP parts.

More mods than are readily apparent and that my wife knows about

Ride comfort should not be affected with any control arm...

Just an old ford...

I'm not going to lie, *I* can tell the difference in ride with any set of aftermarket control arms, but to me, it is VERY minor, and well worth it for the improvement in traction.

The LCAs make the most improvement, but at $179 for the set of three arms, you can't beat our UPR Products Elite Series control arm kit:
