Wheel hop

Ike all other people wheel hop is hell, I have found a way a way to get ride of most if not all of it for under 200 if you install the parts yourself. J&m extreme lca's take all of it away.

Steeds rear LCAs also do the job..

Yup, just need a torque wrench, some sockets, a jack and jackstands. Jackstands are not optional, the car must be supported while the rear end is lifted back into position after removing the LCAs. There are multiple write-ups if you google it.

The only reason I bought the j&m is because they are the best cheapest option

Yeah, Steeda's not cheap. But all that matters is that you fixed the problem and can hook and go without bouncing into the car next to you!

Re: Wheel hop

I got the UPR Billet LCAs, only a tad more than the J&Ms and I think they look much better.
2005-2012 Ford Mustang GT V6 Billet Rear Lower Control Arms - UPR Products

They also make non adjustable tubular LCAs for less than the J&M LCAs.
2005-2012 Ford Mustang GT V6 Solid Urethane Lower Control Arms - UPR Products

It looks like the J&M have spherical ends which will increase NVH much more than poly ends, if that matters to you.

Any well designed LCA will get the job done honestly. I don't think you can really go wrong here. Just make sure you get relocation brackets or adjustable LCAs if you're lowered.

Somebody was talking about them in another thread a while back. A search might be able to dig that up.

I also have the Eibach pro plus kit (springs and front/rear anti roll bars). I would also like to know if anyone has installed their LCA's?
