What brand of LCA's should I get

I have a 2012 Mustang gt that is lowered on eibach pro kit w/dampers. I am getting a squeak and believe it is from the stock LCA's. I am looking for a good set that will not cause any NVH. I want my car to ride good and also sound good inside. Any help would greatly be appreciated. A link to the set on American Muscle would be helpful.

I vote for the Steeda LCAs. I just put them on Saturday and they are unbelievably good. The rear end stays planted. At first, I didn't think they would make that big of a difference, but even without my mustang being lowered they are very impressive. Zero NVH. Looks like another part that Ford bean-counters cheaped out on. Also, the Steeda ones are just beautiful. All of their parts are like little works of art; both construction quality and looks. It's really cool to see the chrome peek out from under the car.

Also, it's worth mentioning that you should pick up a set of LCA relocation brackets since the geometry will be out of play since you're lowered. If you realign them, back to stock angle and step on the gas, the suspension will flex like it's supposed to and push the rubber to the road. Right now you're not getting that benefit as much as a stocker.

I like the way the BMR look and I hear great things about Steeda as well. Which kind of bushings should I look for since that seems to be the difference in prices between the different kind of LCA's that BMR and Steeda offer. And how do I know which hole to put on the relocation bracket so i know that it is back to OEM alignment.

Call Kelly at bmr, he will tell you, obviously they are made out of a different material or something along those lines. Possibly not as strong

Probably right. But I think they'll be plenty strong enough for a bolt-on 4.0 haha

Hey Beast-Before anything is purchased have you had them looked at locally just to get a second opinion? We're reluctant to advise buying a part to solve/cure a per-existing condition as great as BMR as!

I went with BMR since i knew i would be using their relocation brackets (which you need as well since you're lowered) and didnt want their to be any issues. Got all BMR parts on my car, so obviously i am biased, but that being said i have been very happy with each of them.

Thank you for the feedback ... these are very high quality pieces, which are proudly made in the U.S.A.

You will not be disappointed in the quality, fit & finish that this product offers.

Let me know if I can help assist with any question.

I looked at just about every other set of lower control arms on the market, and I couldn't bring myself to purchase any of them. These control arms are lightweight, strong, beautifully crafted, and have a superior bushing design. I honestly didn't expect half of the improvement I got out of these arms; they are worth every penny. I literally didn't realize how bad my wheel hop was until I swapped these arms in, much more stable in a straight line it seems as well. I took my girlfriend out for a spin after installing these, when I launched it she freaked out and said I left the hood unlatched, she had never seen the car lift that hard in the front. - See more at: Steeda 2005-14 Mustang Billet Rear Lower Control Arms - Made in USA 555-4405 - Free Shipping!
You have made a significant investment with the purchase of your Mustang ... go a step further with the Steeda LCA's!

Best Regards,

TJ

whiteline suspension cause no nvh. I have adj phb from them and they are as quite as stock. They use elastomer bushing on their product to keep the ride as comfortable as stock. I just wish they have a non adjustable version of the lca.

Never heard or seen before. If weak stock lca didnt break, whiteline shouldnt neither. After all whiteline is stronger than stock.

It's on svt. More than one case. Whiteline was not built for drag racing. Look at there products next to BMR.
We already went over this on another thread about a year ago.

You must have bought whiteline I'm sorry.

Dayum! Like I said go with BMR. I like Steeda also but in a price comparison BMR beats them out and the quality is the same between the two.

I won't speak to the other product that you mentioned ... but our product is designed, engineered & manufactured under ISO 9001:2008 standards. That is something that we are proud of.

We are held to very strict standards with our quality ...

That's why I said track use. Some of us my self included are way above a basic Bolton coyote.

And whiteline is junk
