Lower control arms

Have to change the front lower control arms . Going with the ford racing ones . I figure I might as well do the rear while I'm at it . Going to change the panhard bar also . Was just wondering what are the brands everyone else is using . Should I get adjustable rear control arms . ( the panhard bar will be ) give me your ideas and thoughts . Thanks

If you're going to lower it, then you should go ahead a get adjustable rear LCAs. Or you would need to install relocations brackets for non-adjustable LCAs and lowering springs. I went with steeda in the rear and love them, one of the big things is to make sure they have poly bushings and not rubber.

That's part of the issue . It's already lowered with h&r coil overs . That's all they did to it . Was just looking at the steeda and I think I'll go with them . It's not going to be a track car just looking for a solid performance from what I get .what do u think of the sr performance products ?

I don't have any experience with S&R, from most comments they seem to be a lower budget product. I thinks it's a you get what you pay for.
Since you're already lowered, I'd get adjustable LCAs and you probably need a rear Upper Control Arm to correct your pinion angle.

Instead of getting the adjustable arms, you can get the LCA relocation brackets, which allow changing the arm geometry. Not sure if you save any money with that option.

Taking it in on Monday . Then I'll decide on what I'm going with . I know for sure I'm going with front lower control arms ,rear adjustable lower and upper control arms and a adjustable panhard bar . Just not positive about the brands yet . The front will be the ford ones . Other than that I want to get a smooth ride as possible because I won't be tracking it . Opinions would be great

Took it to an alignment shop on Monday . Says the noises I hear is not the ball joints . Most Likely from either the h&r coil overs or the upper mounts . So now what to do . Love how the car looks lowered so I just change out the coil overs for lowering springs and koni shocks ? Was so hoping it was the ball joints

Seems like they could have been able to be more specific. Is that a good shop? Some shops aren't good with modded cars only OEM.

I'm hoping he was good . He sure sounded like he was talking about lol. One thing that's hurting me in all this is that the noise is more pronounced when the car is warmed up good . My wife's ex is a ford Machanic so I might take it to him . Would rather not though lol
