I use BMR as well, I'm sure they all serve the same purpose but BMR has been the favorite for these new Mustangs

Since your question already got answered by worthy acknowledgeable people. Instead of starting a new thread. I was curious if....
The whiteline adj upper control arm is a good reliable choice. And Is it better for getting rid of wheel spin than the lower control arm.

I personally wouldn't go with whiteline UCA's. When mine came in I sent them back. Too thin, poor design & weak looking welds. I went with Steeda instead. Much better quality I think.

I know they had some previous problems with them breaking. (Not sure if it was Uca's or lca's). And they recalled them and then redid them. Do you know if you purchased before or after this. The reason I am looking at whiteline is because big A.) heard they are the quietest and little b.) I have a whiteline panhard bar.

Not sure about the quietness of them. And why would it matter if try match or not? Nobody is gonna look under your car. Go for performance...it's not gonna luxury car.

I matched all my suspension parts simply because I know they were all designed to go together. Not sure if it really made a difference or not though

Ok... Just so I don't feel bad about getting the JM LCA, it is working out perfectly. LCA is completely parallel. No creaks. Quiet ride until some rough patches then I feel some NVH.

Oh and yuppers I got em from A the fokking M. Get and be happy.

I have the J&M and no complaints at all, but I will be getting the BMR I live 30 minutes from BMR and get a nice 205 off for using cash, and their stuff is A PLUS in quality, and I already have the uca and lower relo brackets and front k member with the a arms, springs and sway bar, and all I can say is wow, if you want a lighter faster race car feeling ride then you need the bmr k member and a arms.

I just bought the hotchkis on clearance. With the additional discount code they were cheaper than any other web store front. They look cool as well .

Skip this kit, two reasons. 1st, on more than one occasion the Eibach LCA's failed on someone. Second, the Eibach dampers are crappy at best. One of the only companies I know that offer dampers that cant even support their own springs.

Thanks jayman33. Do you recommend the hotchkis lca along with some uca's? I can piece the suspension together as I can afford it. I just want to get a sportier ride during spirited daily driving. I also don't want to blow the stock suspension when drag racing.

I'll throw my .02cents in.....I have had my BMR LCA w/ relo brackets for about 3k miles......love them and never looked back. But the BMR UCA + mount gave my a little gear whine but its liveable. Really happy with my BMR parts.

Thanks. I'll try the LCAs first then. If I like it then I'll try the relo brackets if I still have a wheel hop.

There will always be wheel hop, but the control arms will really reduce it.

Installed hotchkis lca's. It is raining here so did not test them out. Thinking of buying a torque arm for my 14' gt. Leaning towards maximum motor sports.

I didn't know maxi moto made torque arms for 05+
They have ten have some really awesome 04 down suspension products. But I wasn't impressed with their selection for 05+
