Lca's will solve your problem. There is only one upper, which will help you out even more, as all 3 of the stock control arms are all pretty weak. If you dont plan on lowering, check out the non adjustable roush uca and bracket. You will benefit the most by getting new lca's though. Check out the boxed BMRs. I love mine, and they price wont break the bank.

I was looking at Steeda control arms , they are billet aluminum around 300..,what do you think about those?? Should I get the adjustable uca in case I change my mind and lower the car in the future or does that not work with the stock height ??

The steeda billet ones are strong, but are a little overkill for a street car, not to mention the increased NVH you will probably get from them. IMO for a street car a traditional boxed style lca is best. BMR, and metco are my two favorites. Strong boxed design, but are almost as quite as stock. And yes, if you are planning to drop the car in the future, you are better off getting an adjustable uca now. Dont forget to replace the uca mount as well. The mount is the weakest part of the whole design.

I'm going to echo what evil said. Roush or not adjustable Steeda for a 3rd link would be great for a non lowered, street driven car without much increased NVH, but it would probably save you time and money to just get an adjustable one up front. BMR, metco, UPR, Steeda are all great for both upper (3rd link) and lower (trailing arms) control arms. Just be sure you stick with polyurethane bushings to keep nvh down. Also wider tires will cut down on the wheel hop.

I just installed the SVE LCAs on my 14 MT track pack GT. It certainly helped but didn't eliminate the wheel hop. I have a friend with a 13 without the track pack and he doesn't have wheel hop. Springs and panhard bar go on tomorrow so hopefully it will all be gone.

The roush lcas are pretty pricey. You can get metco or bmr for a lot less. But cant go wrong with any of them.

How do the rubber bushings compare to polyurethane bushings ??

Crappy... That's what on there from factory, upgrading to poly helps from the deflection of moving suspension parts

I would imagine the IRS from the 2015 would be a much easier suspension to upgrade?? If I didn't have so much invested in my 11 GT, I would love to do away with that heavy log back there

I just got my springs in and gotta order my other parts. Plan on going BMR pan hard and bracket, Steeda adjustable UCA and probably some LCAs to. Haven't decided on adj ones or not.

Because it's new you'll pay through the nose for parts for a '15.

I definitely would not recommend adjustable lcas. Unless you have a lift, or are 100% sure you can get the car completely lined up on jackstands, they are a PITA to install straight and even.

I would if they are rubber. Not much of an upgrade. Especially for $299.

Again, the BMRs or metcos are much cheaper, and both have polyurethane bushings. Here are the exact ones I have. I love um.

Those do look nice and the price is right .... Do they add much noise to the rear axle or will the axle backs drown that out any way ???

I have a little bit more nvh. But its not bad at all. Plus, i think most of it is coming from my cheap j&m panhard bar. Not to mention im lowered and have relo brackets as well.

It's highly recommended, because as u lower it kinda lifts the axle off the ground a bit making u lose traction. A relocation bracket plants the axle, making u maintain traction rather than lose

Yup. Honestly though, i would recommend them for any drop bigger than 1.25". Im lowered 1.5 and my lca angle was off BAD. im using the middle whole on my bmr brackets now, and it's perfect.

I didn't read the entire thread but if you want traction get the LCA relocate bracket as well. The UCA and bracket are the main things you need to reduce when hop but the LCA and relocate bracket will plant the tires on the ground!

"Need" is a relative word. If you want the most out of it then buy the solid boxed LCAs w/ the brackets. They don't flex like the stock ones allow.

On a side note, jayman33 will hook you up. He is a great guy and has better customer service than the other companies I've dealt with so far.
