When you decide on a new Mustang, it’s like love at first sight. However, it doesn’t take long for you to find flaw with your new project, and one of the first things you might nitpick is the car’s factory ride height. Installing lower springs will bring your Mustang down to earth, but if yours is a 2005-2014 Mustang, lowering it can introduce some new angles in the rear suspension geometry that might not be favorable to performance.

If you are looking for a rugged solution to restore the proper suspension geometry on your lowered S197, Maximum Motorsports has a new solution in the form of its bolt-on Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets (PN Mm5RLCA-57; $199.97).
If you are looking for a rugged solution to restore the proper suspension geometry on your lowered S197, Maximum Motorsports has a new solution in the form of its bolt-on Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets (PN Mm5RLCA-57; $199.97).

A longstanding solution to this issue is relocating the attachment point of the rear lower control arms to correct the geometry. This is usually achieved with a relocation bracket, and the latest option to hit the market is from the suspension gurus at Maximum Motorsports.

“Multiple mounting positions for the rear lower control arms enable easy adjustment of the instant-center location upwards and rearwards to compensate for the loss in anti-squat caused by lowering a 2005-2014 Mustang,” says the company. “Ride quality improves because the rear tires now move backward when striking a bump, instead of moving forward. Extensive load testing resulted in a super-stiff assembly that resists deflection under load, improving launch consistency and handling.”

Maximum says its brackets have less deflection than any other LCA relocations brackets, and the three mounting holes on these robust brackets allow you to dial-in the percentage of anti-squat to optimize your S197’s launch characteristics.

Yes, if you know anything about Maximum’s hardware, you know the parts are robust, and that hasn’t changed with its S197 Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets (PN Mm5RLCA-57; $199.97). These stout pieces keep the Panhard bar mounting points in the stock location, and are designed to clear the factory sway bar and most aftermarket sway bars. Better yet, these units are so tough they simply bolt on without requiring any welding.
