MM in print: 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords magazine asked us to help with the Tech for an article titled "Full Plate," published in the new (June) issue. The article details the many differences in caster/camber plates required to cover the variations in Mustang strut towers from 1979-2014. Read it, and then impress your friends with your knowledge of camber plates and alignments.

Maximum Motorsports Heavy-Duty series Rear Lower Control Arms for the 1999-2004 Mustang improve traction and handling by reducing the unwanted deflection allowed by the stock soft rubber bushings and flexible stamped steel control arm. Unique MM 3-piece bushing and spherical bearing design easily allows the articulation required for proper handling, and reduces the deflection that can cause wheel hop.
Fits 1999-2004 Mustang with solid rear axle. Includes spring perch and swaybar mount.
If your Mustang...
Why not use the Heavy-Duty control arms in those situations? For one reason: Those situations may overload the urethane, leading to premature failure of the bushing. When you hit your Mustang's throttle pedal, all of the forces accelerating your car pass from the rear axle housing through the lower control arms and their bushings; that's what moves your Mustang forward. The harder the car accelerates on launch, the greater the forces on the lower control arm bushings. Higher forces lead to a shorter lifespan of the bushings.
Better by design

Do NOT fit
Q: Can I use the MMRLCA-5 in a drag racing application? A: Yes, but; the heavier the car, and/or the harder it accelerates, the more quickly the urethane bushings will wear out. How quickly the bushings wear depends on the overall weight of the car and the magnitude of the acceleration off of the line (60' time). For cars over 3,200 lb and/or 60' times under 1.7 seconds, we strongly recommend our Extreme-Duty Rear Lower Control Arms.
