Control Arm Relocation Brackets - Lowering a Mustang changes the rear
control arm angles, altering the vehicles "instant center" location.
This instant center is the virtual lift point of the suspension and is
responsible for initiating weight transfer upon acceleration. Relocating
the control arm mounts on the rearend re-gains and improves upon the
Launching harder, reducing wheel
hop, and adding cornering consistency to your 2005-2014 Mustang is easy
with lower control arms from BMR Suspension. Stock stamped steel control
arms with soft rubber bushings deflect under load and absorb power
instead of transferring it to the tires. BMR’s polyurethane,
non-adjustable tubular control arms for S197 Mustangs (TCA019) are TIG-welded
using heavy-duty 1x2-inch boxed steel tubing. This design gives you a
strong control arm that greatly improves performance. Greasable,
95-durometer bushings add a solid, more responsive feel over the stock
rubber bushings. BMR’s bushings are internally fluted, which allows
grease to evenly coat the inner sleeve. These flutes also direct grease
to the outer edge of the bushing, keeping the thrust surface lubricated.
This efficient lubrication ensures quiet, reliable operation over the
life of the bushings.
BMR's upper control arm mount is a direct replacement for the OE piece
and requires no drilling or welding to install. The last generation Fox
body Mustangs had upper control arm mounts incorporated into the frame.
They also had two upper control arms sharing the load but drag racers
were continually ripping the mounts off of the frame when racing. The
solution for those cars was to weld reinforcement plates onto the frame.
This new Mustang platform only has one upper control arm and the mount
is only bolted into place. BMR's upper mount is made from heavy duty
1/4" plate and can be either bolted or welded into place. Additionally
it has dual control arm mounting points for changing instant center.
The single upper control arm is responsible for maintaining pinion angle
and preventing axle counter-rotation. This "3 link" style suspension is
ideal for autocross and road race applications as it allows the most
articulation possible with a solid axle. For drag racing, however, the
single, centered link becomes a weak point as the arm is only one inch
thick in the middle and made from light gauge, stamped steel. BMR's
upper control arm is made from 1 5/8" .120 wall DOM tube and is TIG
The Stocker Star Adjustable Shocks feature easy bolt-in installation in
the stock mounting locations.
The Deflective Disc Valving Technology gives these shocks increased
valving response, control and consistency. Gone are the days of removing
the shock to adjust valving because you can adjust the Stocker Stars
with just the turn of a knob while they are mounted on the car.
A 5/8' centerless ground, hard chrome piston provides increased
durability and eliminates piston rod flex. The machined, forged aluminum
body is lightweight and stronger than billet. The body is bright
anodized for unmatched durability, ease of maintenance and show winning
appearance. The Stocker Stars also feature a three step sealing system
that uses aerospace material and an exclusively engineered double lip
seal with wiper to eliminate seal drag and dirt intrusion.
Each shock is 100% dyno tested and serialized to assure consistency in
production and performance. The bushing material is exclusive to QA1
shocks and all mounting hardware is either zinc or chrome plated for
durability and professional appearance. They also use an exclusive nylon
race bearing for smooth, bind-free operation.
3 link suspensions place excessive loads on the upper link bushings. In
the '05, two bushings are responsible for handling the same torque load
that 4 bushings had done before. Additionally, these bushings are
subjected to more "twist" than before since the rear end can better
articulate as a 3 link design. In order to allow free articulation, the
OE rearend bushing is designed to flex. This flex is great for handling
but under straight line acceleration, it contributes to wheelhop and
inconsistant launch characteristics.
Energy Suspension offers a no-compronise solution with it's dual
durometer 5 piece polyurethane replacement bushing. By designing the
bushing as a multi-piece unit, it allowed them to keep the inside
portion stiff for great straightline acceleration load and the outside
portions soft for bind-free handling.
