ADJUSTABLE REAR LOWER CONTROL ARMS
I installed a set of adjustable rear lower control arm in my 86 Mustang open track car. I wanted to lower the rear of the car by about an inch. I debated just cutting the spring, and didn't want to go with coil-overs at this time. And eventually I will be installing a torque arm, so it had to be compatible with the new lower arms.
I chose a set of Maximum Motorsport adjustable spring perch lower control arms. One urethane bushing at the box end, and a metal heim style bushing at the axle end. It came with provisions for the sway bar, which I wanted.
I was able to adjust 1 inch out of the rear ride height. Not bad.
