PRI 2016: BMR Suspension Upgrades For Fox, S197 & S550

Long a proponent of improving Mustang handling and traction, BMR Suspension addressed the latest Mustang, but proved it hasn’t forgotten about its predecessors with a host of new products revealed at The PRI Show.

Going back to give Fox Mustangs more hook, BMR took the wraps off a trio of new lower control arms including an adjustable, an on-car adjustable and and all-out race version.

“We cover, essentially ’79 and newer Mustangs. We started with Fox body, which would be these three arms,” Pete Epple of BMR Suspension said of the two streetable arms. “The single-adjustable arm is the TCA049, which features a polyurethane bushing, Viking rod ends, stock mounts. It’s a replacement arm. We then go to the TCA051, which is an on-car adjustable version. This has our new telescoping adjuster.”

The company now offers a trio of lower control arms, from a direct replacement adjustable to full-race version.

For the 2011-2014 crowd, BMR offers a new upper control arm with a robust spherical end and a telescoping adjuster. If you need even more traction, the company now has a bolt-on solution for more drag strip traction for all S197s.

“It bolts directly to the rearend and then the endlinks bolt right into the factory swaybar endlink locations on the body, so you don’t even have to weld tabs on the rearend,” Pete said of the anti-roll bar. “Right now this is price at $199, which is super-low introductory pricing (that won’t last).

To improve S197 traction, BMR now offers a 2011-2014 upper arm with a huge, rugged spherical bearing and a bolt-on anti-roll bar for all S197s.

To enhance lowered 2015+ Mustangs, BMR now offers these fixed-length billet upper camber links, which will right the suspension geometry on modern Mustangs with common lowering springs.

“These are longer than stock, so that when you lower the car it stands the wheels up enough to get the alignment right,” Pete said. They are available with either a polyurethane bushing or a Delrin bushing and a spherical bearing. This also clearance cut into these for (aftermarket) halfshafts.”
