Gotta say, trackpack wheels really look good on these cars.

Your rear wheels look like they moved forward in the wheel well. You might want to look into some LCAs and UCA with brackets. Maybe it's just the picture? Correct me if I'm wrong

I believe the trackpack cars come with GT500 lower control arms, if I'm not mistaken.

I've put LCA's on two TrakPak cars and neither had GT500 LCA's, including my 2014 TrakPak.

Actually, they do have oe GT500 LCA's on them. They may look the same, but the part #'s, paint color and rubber bushings are different.

stock GT LCA part#: AR33-5538-BA
2011-2014 GT track pack & 2007-2012 GT500 LCA part #: BR3V-5538-AB

The 2 above parts look identical, but the BR3V has stiffer rubber and is silver instead of black.


"Ford Racing GT500 2005-2014" LCA part #: M-5538-A (silver in color & larger)

I believe the above part is also the oem 2013-2014 GT500 LCA part. The call it a 2005-2014 GT500, as it will fit all of those years, but I only believe it became the OE part when they upped the horsepower in 2013.

^ Thanks. I was just trying to say it may need them with the different wheels. Can't see any other reason his wheels would be so far forward. Probably worse because it's lowered too.

Has absolutely zero to do with the wheels. It is because he lowered it. The GT500 LCAs would do nothing for him.
