Front Control Arm Bolts, Low Profile, 1979-2004 (pair)
Actual product may differ from photo.

$39.97

  • Item # MMF-2
  • Manufacturer: Maximum Motorsports
 

 

These low-profile bolts attach the front control arms to the K-member of 1979-2004 Mustangs. Direct replacement for the two forward front control arm pivot bolts.

Maximum Motorsports designed the rounded contour and low-profile head of these bolts to improve clearance to the rubber steering rack boot. This also allows mounting the steering rack further rearward, closer to the K-member, which enhances the Ackerman steering geometry effect. Increased Ackerman effect quickens steering response at turn-in and reduces understeer.

Required
Torx tool (T-55) to hold the bolt while tightening the nut.

  • 1 kit attaches the forward bushing of both front control arms
