The Right LCA Setup - Help.

I've been looking around for sometime and been trying to look for the perfect set up for my rear control arms and wanting to get a whole set (LCA's, UCA, and possibly panhard). I've come to the conclusion of solid poly lower control arms and an adjustable upper w/ mount. But had a question on a kit and if it would fit the Six. Thought a good amount of parts were interchangeable between the V6 and V8. Any info or good advice would be much appreciated. Also wheel hop is annoying as hell and want to plant that power!!!!

Here's a little info or the needed info for this situation.

2012 mustang Sixer, DD, 4.10 gears, One Piece driveshaft, MPT 91 Performance Tune, Stock Wheels (Plan on getting a set of ?), ect,.

Lastly - car is NOT lowered, will probably just stick the with stock setup and especially with the new shoes later on.

I'm a big fan of BMR when it comes to lca/uca.

The problem with poly bushings is the noise and vibration they transmit to the interior. I also think it is overkill with a 6. I put Ford Racing GT500 control arms on my ride and they did a good job of eliminating wheel hop and braking nose dive without adding any drivetrain noise. There is no need for an adjustable upper mount if you are not going to lower either.

We have poly LCAs, UCA (the actual bushing on the differential, he UCA itself is stock) and panhard bar. I'd call it virtually 0 increase in NVH over stock, and whatever NVH there is came from replacing the bushing on the differential itself.

That being said the GT500 are probably not a bad option because poly tends to bind, so the handling of the car isnt ideal, whereas the rubber GT500 unit will be more flexible. This means the GT500 unit wont put power down quite as well as a poly one, but still.

I also went with the GT 500 lower control arms. If they are good enough for a Shelby, they should be good enough for a v6. I have 'never' had any wheel hop with my automatic with the factory LCR's or the GT500 LCR's. I couldn't tell any difference between the two, as far as 'better' traction. I 'think' with the harder bushings, they should help with wheel hop

Holy Moses! Thanks all for the inputs! I'll start with the gt500 lca's and start from there.


I've read that they make an incredible difference...

If you want stock gt500 lca's, they also came on track pack cars and later model gts with manual trans. Probably can buy real cheap on SVT Performance forum.

Lol you think poly is bad try a full Delrin IRS! Why I kept the poly bushings that were already in the subframes on mine. Consensus always seems to be BMR or Whiteline TBTH...

And UPR makes a damn good product too no matter what the internet says. Price is right as well.

I had BMR LCAs, UCA, and Panhard on my 2014 V6 and it did not induce any extra noise, vibration, etc. The car was extremely solid taking off when paired with Eibach lowering springs, shocks, and struts.

On my 2011 V6, I put the GT500 LCAs on because I wasn't going to lower it so I didn't go overboard. I honestly don't feel any difference. The reason I changed them is the bushings on the stock ones were trashed so I wanted something that seemed like an OEM replacement.
