front Lower control arm brace

FRPP makes a front lower control arm brace... Is this worth $50 and will it still work after you relocate the control arms?

Re: front Lower control arm brace

Can you post a link to the specific thing you are looking at? I'm not sure what you are asking about so can't really comment on it.

U just did... Lol

Increases Chassis Stiffness. Increase the stiffness of your Mustangs chassis and add additional control arm support with a Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arm Brace. This is the same exact brace that came as standard equipment on the 2007-2009 Shelby GT500.

Re: front Lower control arm brace

Guess I did! That's like when someone comes up and says "can I ask you a question" LOL

I haven't seen anyone use that - we put something similar on a friends car but it was a K member brace (my convertible already had it). And I wasn't sure because your question also asks about relocating the control arms - I haven't seen relocation for the front control arms, only the rear.

I would think that anything that ties the front suspension together will be stiffer and give tighter handling - probably add to noise as well since it takes some of the softness of the bushings out of the equation.

I almost bought it then realized it was already on the car. Speeda also makes something similar.
