94 mustang gt A-arms

Hey guys and gals looking to replace the A-arms in my 94 and wanted some thoughts from everyone on what brand and style. Going to be using stock k member with brace and lowering springs not coilovers. Also any tips on the install would be great. Thanks in advance.

Tubular a arms are nice but you'd need to run coil overs which you don't want to do

Stock ford ones aren't bad depending on your spring and shocks

Most aftermarket tubulars already have ball joints in them

If you can find a set of terminator arms, use those. Stronger and 10% tighter turning radius. Ford used to sell them for cheap, I got a set for like $129 in 2005. Sold them in 2012 for $300 lol.

They were OEM stock, I have not seen them new for sale from Ford for awhile but you might be able to find some new old stock somewhere or used.

Yeah Steeda X2s. You might as well replace the A-arm bushings themselves too.

I'd try to get at least a good legit brand vs some rando duracrap stuff but yeah, a good set of new rubber bushings with stock Terminator A arms and X2 balljoints will be a good setup that will not have any added NVH and last a good while.

When I went to Bradenton for the NMRA I picked up from the UPR truck a brand new kmember with coil overs and spring of choice for $600.00. This was a few years ago but you can score some good deals at these meets plus the flea market area has awesome deals.

Yeah chromemoly of course.

When I bought mine they didn't even offer mild steel.


Also it gave me a bunch of room down there and dropped some pounds at the same time.

Mild steel is actually fine for these. BMR won't even build their S197 K members out of Chromoly and those are fine. Although now that MM released their K member for the S197 I see no reason to go with the BMR besides cost.
