J&M Rear Lower Control Arms

I know I've been asking questions left and right lately...I have also been searching, but sometimes have no luck. I'm thinking about biting on these rear lower control arms for my 09 gt. The roads around Chicago just suck and it seems like my car has awful wheel hop. Excluding the price of the LCAs, (which are $100 for the pair) (J&M Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms (05-14 All) 23861B - Free Shipping!) how much should a fair shop charge me to install these? I've heard people saying they had them installed in 45 minutes, so I'm assuming a shop install shouldn't be too expensive?

Thanks everyone

Get some beers and ill help, did mine in 35 mins, the relocation brackets took longer, but the best thing that cured my wheel hop was ford racing K springs

Doesn't seem like too hard of a job... Maybe I will try and tackle it myself. I did the axleback and cold air with minimal problems. If I wanted to install these LCAs, would I need relocation brackets? Or would I only need relocation brackets if I lowered the car?

@Basohol...I see you're from Illinois man, where at?

Thanks again guys

relocation brackets are a must if you plan on lowering the car. it'll correct the angle of the lcas.

It seems like lowering the car costs a pretty good amount of money....Requires new relocation brackets, springs and an alignment? (and potentially a shop install if you don't do it yourself) The aftermarker LCAs don't need relocation brackets though right? Those just bolt up and thats it eh?

I'm in Joliet area, lowering your car, you only need springs, that's all I did for a year then I got relocation brackets, and that's all

Langer1099,

Good call on installing the LCA's yourself. It's a somewhat simple process that will save you some cash and you'll be proud to have worked on your Mustang!

To make things ever easier, follow this step-by-step instructions from J&M. They're from the installation tab on our AM site. This should cover everything you need.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll be happy with the outcome!

Shane

I just dropped $800 total into lowering my GT I did the FRPP-P springs 1" drop ft & rear the GT500 strut mounts, ( my stock mounts fell apart when I took them apart from the stock strut and my car only has 20K miles) I also replaced the Struts and shocks was not my plan at the time but when I disassembled the struts the drivers side strut was showing signs of going bad leaking oil and easy to collapse and slow to spring back up with only 20K miles on the car I was not expecting that so I went to Advance and got OEM replacement Monroes . I also installed a J&M adjustable panhard bar very nice pice after seeing this part I plan to pick up the J&M lower control arms soon.
Last thing I installed were 1" hudcentric wheel spacers front and rear I went with spacers because I did not want to drop 2K into wheels and tires (Staggered set-up) The spacers pushed my stock 18" Fanblades out to almost the edge of the fender lip. I did the install myself took me the better part of a sat. So I guess what I'm getting at is plan ahead when you start to work on lowering your car you cant always get away with doing it cheep
here is a pic of the end results
