The first one is garbage and is not an upgrade really. The second looks good as they have poly bushings. I'm not a fan of tubular control arms though. In my experience they transmit more noise then soild billet aluminum pieces like steeda.

And the second pair doesn't have grease fittings, which means they'll be a ***** to grease.

Why not just a a set of BMR LCAs? They cost less and will work better than the ones your looking at. They will also be easier to grease.

Are you speaking about these?
Steeda Billet Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms - Polyurethane Bushings 555-4405 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping
Description says no nvh, really? abit expensive but if its true its well worth it. Also hows traction improvement compared to other lca's like the whiteline adj. lca with elastomer bushings?

I heard they cause alot of noises and needed to be grease frequently. Are thereothere alternatives to increase traction with no nvh?

How many miles have you had them on so far? how often do you need to regrease?

Im really leaning towards these, its the only lca i have seen so far that saids no nvh in the description and has great traction performance gain.

You only regreased them once and they never squeaked? do they even require regreasing? whats the difference between aluminum vs steel lower control arms?

I've had BMR LCAs on my six for 10K miles. I don't drive mines that much but I haven't greased them since I installed them. Just make sure you use the right grease. ( nothing with petroleum in it) Steeda is very good and you should go with them but if you want to save some coin then go with BMR over the others in your original post.

This is the cheapest billet LCA's for mustang. Last year's thanksgiving sale, this was around $150. I used this for almost a year with BMR reloc bracket with no issues.

those are nice. I got the performance package so I wouldn't need to do the suspension mods since they were already done

I got 2013 pp as well. Can't compare it with this. However, I changed UCA and bracket with metco from ebay (lightly used) altogether. It feels very tight and planted with no noticeable increase in nvh. I just can't tell which one provides more impact, UCA or LCA as I changed it at the same time.

I guess I was hit by a mod bug. However, I only buy if I find bargain price of the parts I wanted. As far as the performance difference of a PP rear suspension and the mod I made, it's something that you can feel and tell that you made an upgrade. Ditching out those soft bushings from PP oem parts. I also choose the metco UCA as the arm can twist and looks very sturdy, relieving strain to the bushings when in corners or uneven pavements.

I have the top ones. When I took off my stock ones, the new ones looked very similar, but I think the difference mostly is in the durometer level / hardness of the rubber bushings.

It felt a little stiffer, but wasn't world changing. It felt like the tires just spun instead of spin, then hop, then spin, etc..
