Rear upper and lower control arms

Ok stupid question but I see no lower control arms on my gt in the rear but they sell them as upper lower or upper and lower control arms.. Would I need brackets for the lower or did I miss them during my glance

You must've missed them taking a glance. If you look under again and see your rear spring, the springs rests on the lower control arms.

Steeda Subframe connectors, Steeda or MM Lower control arms, leave the stock uppers alone and a good set of lowering springs/shocks/struts and MM caster camber plates. Also get a set of 4.10s in there asap.

If you want to do anything with the uppers just get a torque arm, it'll do much more good.

Yeah, use the stock uppers.
You can get new factory replacements. They only have the bushing installed on the side that mounts to the body. The axle side bushings are pressed into the rear axle itself and you can buy the bushings and a neat tool to press them out of the axle, without removing it from the car, from Maximum Motorsports.
