Product Description

J&M Products 23980-02 - Mustang Upper Control Arm Ford Mustang Street Performance Black Powercoat - J&M Products; 2005-2010.

Mustang Upper Control Arm 05-10 Ford Mustang Street Performance Black Powercoat. Mustang Upper Control Arm Street Performance just like the lower control arm bushings in the Mustang the upper control arm can have a significant impact on the vehicle's ride, comfort, handling, acceleration, noise and vibration. When the car leans (i.e., rolls) in a turn, one side of the chassis moves upward relative to the rear axle, the other side moves downward, and the upper control arm must twist (rotate) to allow for the axle to articulate through its suspension travel. This rotation causes the control arm bushing to bind. If this bind becomes excessive, it will raise the rear wheel rate and produce sudden, uncontrolled, undesirable changes in handling (e.g., snap oversteer).
Ford minimizes this suspension bind by using compliant rubber bushings in the upper control arm. This very soft bushings help accommodate the necessary motion of the control arms during body roll. However, the rubber bushing does not provide much in the way of forward and aft support, which can cause wheel hop during hard acceleration and braking.
It has become common practice to replace the stock rubber control arm bushings with solid or two piece polyurethane bushings to resolve the shortcomings of the soft rubber bushings. Hard polyurethane bushings eliminate wheel hop, reduce axle deflection, and improves straight line grip. However, the downside of common aftermarket bushings such as delrin, steel, stiffer rubber, solid or two piece polyurethane bushings is they prevent the necessary movement of the control arm during body roll, which in turn produces significant binding in the suspension when the vehicle is cornering. The polyurethane bushings also place unnecessary high stresses on the upper torque box mount, which is the attachment point for the control arm to the chassis. Standard aftermarket control arms do not allow for rotation of the control arm during cornering because of the stiffness of the bushings.
The Solution:
J&M Products designed and built a tubular upper control arm which will eliminate the unwanted uncontrolled control arm flex. Round tubing is harder to work with but has many other advantages over square or rectangular tubing. It is stronger in bending, torsion, and also lighter than square or rectangular tubing.
J&M Products then solved the shortcomings of the factory rubber and other aftermarket polyurethane and stiffer rubber bushings. J&M Products accomplished this with their Patent Pending 3 piece Poly-Ball bushing combination. By spending countless hours looking and dissecting the geometry and the need of the rear suspension they have come out with bind-free bushings set up. J&M Products incorporates a very hard inner polyurethane ball which is surrounded by soft socket outer cups. This combination allows the bushing to articulate like a spherical bearing during cornering but the hard inner ball does not allow the bushing to deflect during acceleration giving you great traction during acceleration like solid bushings but remains completely bind free during cornering for great predictable traction in the corners.

About J&M Products

History and information about J&M Products and their products.

J&M Products produces adj-control arms brackets, ball joints, lower control arms, panhard rods, brake kits, shock tower braces, brake lines, shock tower braces, subframe connectors, upper control arms and Mustang control arms for your performance vehicle. You can trust J&M suspension parts because they have proven their parts are of excellent quality. They have been in the business of manufacturing aftermarket parts since 1963 and are constantly improving their products. Let the LMPerformance team help you with your Mustang, Firebird or Camaro suspension selection and get a great price!

J&M is a California-based company that has concentrated their efforts in manufacturing for the Camaro and Mustang. J&M suspension innovation is evident in the release of their entirely redesigned camber and caster plates for the 2005-2010 Mustang which affords increased camber adjustment compared to other brands and a unique design which allows you to install it for either street use or racing. If you find that your tires on your Mustang are wearing unevenly, or if you have lowered your Mustang, then you should consider installing the J&M caster camber plates. The benefits are multiple: correcting your suspension geometry after lowering it, less tire wear, adjustability, improved steering, and improved alignment. Caster camber plates may not increase your Mustang’s power, but they will enhance your Mustang’s suspension performance.

Diligent in their pursuit of innovative products, J&M designed and manufactured direct fit PTFE lined brake hose kits for your Mustang, Camaro and Firebird that routes and fits precisely because it uses OEM-style direct replacement and whose Teflon properties will not result in the squishy brake pedal feel you get when a rubber hose expands. In addition, the J&M brake hoses are designed with the performance driver in mind because they can withstand the rigors of extreme racing conditions and higher temperatures. Another unique product from J&M, the adjustable pan hard rod is primo quality, lightweight and keeps your rear axle where it should be for significant improvement in cornering and handling. Yet another innovation from J&M suspension, the improved upper and lower control arms are a perfect fit for your muscle car. Their patent pending three piece poly-ball bushing combination is bind free. And if you have lowered your Mustang, consider J&M/Ingalls Engineering extended length ball joints that will raise the roll center and reduce body roll and brake dive. You can find these and other exciting J&M suspension products, such as Camaro suspension parts or Mustang control arms, on the LMPERFORMANCE website and get them at a competitive price with free shipping.
