I went down to Mustang Racing Technologies today (www.mrt-direct.com) You know... the guys with the great rear quarter window louvers!!! Anyways, I wanted to replace the flimsy stock rear lower control arms so I went and talked with Scott Hoag... He is a super guy!!!! Was very patient with all my silly questions! We decided to go with a set of BMR adjustable LCAs with the combo ends, rod/poly. Here a couple of pics... I will try to update my website with more info... but for now I just wanted to show you guys some before and after pics... Hoping to give these guys a good workout Saturday!

Stock LCA


Check out this stock bushing! That axle has got to be moving all over the place!



here's the BMR bushing:


bmr installed!!!


A big thank you goes out to Scott and MRT!!!

Scott explained how you could adjust them for different things like preloading the suspension... the more advanced things... nothing I need to worry about right now but maybe down the road... the main thing is after looking at the stock control arms I have to believe what the BMR blurb says...

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.

so based on this and what I seen today these control arms should give me more traction... if some one would like to explain it better, I'm all ears!!! I'm a complete newbie when it comes to suspension...

Nice, let us know how it feels after you drive it some. Im curiuos how much it improves. I totally agree with the statement
""erratic handling and inconsistent rear end stability when subjected to the added loads of performance driving.""

Only had the car about 260 miles and thats what it feels like a little to me. For instance on an off ramp curve and you hit a bump in the road, it bounces a little squirlly. But Im also coming from an IRS T-bird.
