Brembo Rear LCAs

Anyone know if the rear LCAs are GT500 LCAs? I've read that they are, if so what would be an upgrade to them?

I've been rocking the UPR billet LCAs and like them a lot.

I went Steeda on my brembo car.. You can feel the bumps a lil more but worth it to get rid of the wheel hop

Re: Brembo Rear LCAs

Steeda Billet LCA's, over here. I have the UCA and 3rd Link Mount, as well. Wheel hop is gone, but I honestly don't know what part(or parts) took care of it. I've been thinking of reverting back to the stock LCA's due to a slight increase in NVH.

Re: Brembo Rear LCAs

i've been trying to figure out this question of whether the brembo cars have the GT500 LCAs or not. I just looked under my 12 GT Brembo and they look the same as gtstyles2's picture. If they are the same as the GT500, I'm not sure that i'm impressed. Are the GT500 LCA's supposed to be any better than stock or do they still need to be replaced to get rid of the wheel hop?

They do look the same.. And if they are then obviously they gotta be replaced.. Look at it like you would exhaust.. They have to put a quiet exhaust on the vehicle from factory to pass certain tests.. They have to put certain LCAs, springs, etc to pass their comfort tests.. If they were strictly track cars they wouldn't have to worry about it..

Re: Brembo Rear LCAs

That's my question, I purchased the GT500 (Ford Racing) LCAs from AM. I was under the Pony the other day and noticed they looked the same. I looked up on Brembo.com (I know)...not sure where the information comes from (it isn't sourced) and it says the Brembo Ponies come with GT500 LCAs as part of the suspension upgrade. So I sent the back to AM. I'll look into LCAs later...

The gt500 still has wheel hop just as bad as the 5.0 my dads shakes the same way and they have even more trouble hooking up which is why it's almost pointless for him to have 625hp

I think the biggest thing isnt so much the control arm itself but the soft rubber bushings from the factory.. As opposed to poly bushings or spherical ends
