HPP003 - Handling Performance Package (Level 2)
BMR Suspension has taken the guesswork out of making significant handling improvements to the 2005-2010 S197 Mustang, and put it in one convenient package. Countless hours of design, engineering, and track testing gives you the best combination of parts for improved handling on the street and track. Matching specific components provides a great blend of performance, aesthetics, and comfort.
BMR’s Level 2 Handling Package (HPP003) addresses key points of the suspension to improve the “system.” BMR Suspension designed the HPP003 to work well for street performance and handling applications. BMR’s Level 2 Handling Package is 100-percent bolt-in and require zero cutting, welding, or modification to the chassis or suspension. Whether you simply want a better handling daily driver, or the ultimate track day car, rely on BMR Suspension!
Lowering Springs (SP009)
BMR Suspension believes the right springs go beyond looks—your S197 needs to perform, too! Blending aesthetics and performance, BMR has designed the SP009 for the street performance crowd who want to use their cars in a variety of application. These springs will drop the front end of your S197 Mustang 1.5-inches, and feature a fine-tuned spring rate (165lb front, 160lb rear) to give you great handling and a smooth ride. The linear spring rate offers plenty of support, keeping the body flat and level in the corners, while remaining soft enough for a comfortable ride on any road.
Front Sway Bars (SB022)
Stock sway bars have low torsional spring rates because they are manufactured from small diameter bar stock or tubing. BMR Suspension’s SB022 front sway bar was designed by factoring in the vehicle weight, application, motion ratio, coil spring rate, and adjustability requirements. Manufactured from heavy-wall 35mm DOM tubing, the SB022 is cold formed to better resist torsional fatigue and retain its "memory" far longer than the hot-formed bars used by many competitors. The sway bar is CNC-formed for exact manufacturing tolerances and repeatable high quality. Thrust washers are welded to the bar to locate the sway bar bushing mounts. This is critical as it properly locates the sway bar and prevents lateral movement during hard cornering maneuvers. The sway bar mounts to the car using polyurethane bushings. These bushings are molded from 88-durometer, low-deflection, polyurethane, and are internally fluted to keeps grease in the bushing. The steel sway bar mounting brackets are reinforced to minimize deflection. The sway bar is 3-way adjustable to tune the amount of torsional spring rate and to determine the handling characteristics (understeer/oversteer) of the vehicle.
BMR Suspension designed the SB022 sway bar for street performance, autocross, and road race applications. The large adjustable sway bar’s three positions give you the versatility to drive to and from the road course or autocross and still out handle the competition with the same sway bar. The rate increases and adjustability allow you to fine-tune the handling characteristics of your Mustang so you can drive harder through corners with minimal body roll. The hollow design allows for loads of strength in the lightest package possible. This means increased performance with no sacrifices. The SB022 attaches to your Mustang with 88-durometer polyurethane bushings, reducing the deflection from the stock rubber bushings. This allows for more sway bar control, and more control equals better handling.
Rear Sway Bar (SB023)
Stock sway bars have low torsional spring rates because they are manufactured from small diameter bar stock or tubing. BMR Suspension’s SB023 rear sway bar was designed by factoring in the vehicle weight, application, motion ratio, coil spring rate, and adjustability requirements. Manufactured from heavy-duty 22mm bar stock, the SB023 is cold formed to better resist torsional fatigue and retain its "memory" far longer than the hot-formed bars used by many competitors. The sway bar is CNC-formed for exact manufacturing tolerances and repeatable high quality. The SB023 attaches to your Mustang with billet aluminum end links and 88-durometer polyurethane bushings, reducing the deflection from the stock rubber bushings. These bushings are molded from 88-durometer, low-deflection, polyurethane, and are internally fluted to keep grease in the bushing. The CNC-machined, billet aluminum sway bar end links eliminate deflection.
BMR Suspension designed the SB023 sway bar for street performance, autocross, and road race applications. The non-adjustable SB023 gives you a 52% increase in rate over the stock bar (depending on year and model). The rate increases gives you improved handling characteristics so you can drive harder through corners with minimal body roll. This allows for more sway bar control, which equals better handling.
Factory Mustang Panhard rod supports are made from weak U-shaped stamped steel that allows excessive deflection under load. BMR Suspension’s PHR007 Panhard rod support brace is made from boxed tubing for extra strength. The PHR007 adds tons of strength for increased lateral loads seen during cornering situations and hard launches.
BMR Suspension designed the PHR007 to work well for street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The heavy-duty construction eliminates the deflection seen in stamped-steel Panhard rod supports. Other Panhard rod supports on the market will deflect under heavy loads. The heavy-duty construction of the PHR007 eliminates deflection, giving you much-improved, repeatable handling characteristics on the street, starting line, or in aggressive corners. This allows for fine-tuning and bind-free suspension articulation needed for superior handling. This is the perfect Panhard rod for the enthusiast that requires maximum performance from the suspension.
Description part 2
BMR’s bolt-on relocation brackets for S197 Mustangs are the ultimate in strength and adjustability. The stock lower control arm mounting location can give you insufficient lower control arm angle on lowered vehicles. BMR’s control arm relocation brackets allow you to correct the lower control arm angle, correcting the rear suspension geometry and allowing you to add anti-squat for increased traction. Manufactured from heavy-duty 3/16- and 1/4-inch laser cut, CNC-formed steel plate, the CAB005 are designed to bolt in place, making installation simple and easy.
The stock control arm mounting position is fine for stock height vehicles, but once you lower your car, the control arms change and need to be corrected. The CAB005s allow you lower the lower control arms’ rear mounting position by as much as 3 inches, correcting the control arm angles. This also allows you to make instant center changes for race applications. BMR Suspension designed the CAB005 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. It is engineering to bolt on and stand up to extremely high horsepower and torque levels, as well as the hardest drag strip launches without moving on the rearend housing.
These Ford Racing Upper Strut mounts feature a higher durometer mounting pad for increased performance, higher impact loads, and increased durability. Factory Upper Strut Mount failure is a common occurrence on 2005-Current Mustangs, especially when replacing your front suspension with aftermarket pieces. These units are the perfect upgrade for your 2005-2014 Mustang GT and V-6.
Subframe Connectors (SFC011)
Ford's new Mustang platform is a vast improvement over the Fox body with chassis rigidity upgraded over 30%. While this is good news, it is still a uni-body and we are still left with a front and rear subframe that is not connected. BMR subframe connectors take over where the factory left off by tying the rear control arm mounts and subframe assembly to the front subframe. The HD boxed subframes go a few steps further than the tubular design by triangulating key structural points together to make a very rigid frame. Available in Black Hammertone or red powdercoat. NOTE: Fits v8 and v6 models. Will also fit convertibles if rear bracing is removed.
Strut Tower Brace (STB011)
The Mustang chassis flexes dramatically, even with mild amounts of torque and horsepower. BMR’s Strut Tower Braces are manufactured from a mix 1x2-inch steel tubing and laser-cut 3/16-inch steel plate. This design adds loads of strength to the front frame and suspension. These Strut Tower Braces are engineered to considerably strengthen the chassis. The STB011 connects the strut mounts to reinforce unibody and suspension.
BMR has designed the STB011 for the street performance, drag race, and handling applications. This two-point design solidly links the front strut towers, added strength to the entire front unibody and suspension. BMR’s STB011 Strut Tower Brace is 100% bolt-in. This means they can be easily installed with simple hand tools, and no welding is required.
Upper Control Arm Mount (UCM001)
Our 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. Our 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.
Upper Control Arm (UTCA020)
The stock control arm with soft rubber bushings deflects under load and absorbs power instead of transferring it to the tires. BMR’s spherical, on-car adjustable tubular control arm for S197 Mustangs (UTCA020) is manufactured from heavy-duty 1 5/8 inch, 0.120-inch wall DOM steel tubing. The center adjuster is CNC-machined from chrome-moly steel with rolled threads for the ultimate in strength and durability. The arms feature TIG-welded chrome-moly tube adapters. This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. Spherical bearings offer the highest levels of strength and articulation. When the highest levels of performance are required, BMR uses heavy-duty Teflon-lines Viking Performance spherical bearings.
BMR Suspension designed the UTCA020 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The stock control arm flexes under even light cornering loads giving you inconsistent handling characteristics. Combine this with soft bushings that have massive amounts of deflection and you’re left with poor performance. The UTCA020’s heavy-duty construction eliminates control arm flex, giving you much improved repeatability on the street, starting line, or in the corners. The adjustability allows you to dial in pinion angle for increased traction with reduced NVH. BMR’s spherical bearing offers tons of articulation for great handling, whiles remaining strong enough to stand up to high loads of any performance environment. These are the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast looking for max performance at an affordable price.
BMR Suspension’s HPP003 Level 2 Handling Package is available in black hammertone and red powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is 6-8 hours. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
