    So BMRs cradle bushing lockout kit that we're taking a look at today is going to be a premium option kit for the Mustang owner out there that's looking to keep their car and their rear end, more importantly, on the ground. So this should definitely appeal to Mustang owners out there that are looking to cut down on subframe bushing deflection and wheel hop, which in turn means that you're going to get off the line that much better, as well as having more improved handling for the corners. But more importantly, this kit was brought to market to help reduce cradle deflection, which in English essentially means that you're getting smokier burnouts. But more importantly, it's going to be centering that cradle. Now, it's also worth pointing out that BMR was able to achieve their results while not creating additional noise, vibration, or harshness, and for that I think it's going to be a great option for no matter a commuter or an auto-crosser, or a track car. But in terms of the construction and materials, we're going to see that this U.S. manufactured kit is going to be primarily manufactured out of 1-5/8" heavy-duty steel for strength and durability. We're also going to see that the upper lockout rings will be manufactured out of the 60-61 T6 aluminum. The lowers, as well as the additional supports will be laser-cut out of a stainless steel. Now, switching gears to the pricing here, you should expect to be spending $200 to get into this kit, which in my opinion is honestly a no-brainer if you're looking to help that IRS get down that much more effectively, which in turn is going to help you get off the line better. Now, for the install again, I'm going to be giving this one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and it should take about an hour. Now, you will need a full socket set and a prybar for this install. Now, if you have access to a lift, you are going to need a pull jack to support the cradle in place as you're working on it. Now, if you are using a set of jack stands to work under your car, you will need a floor jack to hold the cradle in place. Now, first off, you're going to want to get your car off the ground and if you are using a lift, you'll want to get that pull jack underneath the cradle to support it. Start by removing the two smaller support cradle bracket holes on the front of the cradle. Now, just a quick note here, the rear is not going to have a bracket. Next, loosen all four main cradle bolts without completely removing them. Once all four bolts are loosened, remove two of the main cradle bolts in the front or rear, whichever side you're on, and then drop that cradle enough, so you can get your new cups, bushings, and brackets in place. Now, just a quick note, guys, the cups are the little pieces that look like hockey pucks. The thicker ones are going to be up front, and then the thinner ones are going to be used in the rear. So on the front of the cradle, install the taller cup in the gap, and then use the lower bushing insert on the bottom. On the rear, you're going to use the thinner upper cup on top, and then use the lower bracket on the bottom. Reinsert the main cradle bolts and support brackets, along with the two smaller cradle bolts. But make sure not to fully tighten them, as you'll need the cradle to sag to work on the other side. Now, once the other side is completed, you'll simply tighten up all your bolts and you're good to go. Now, you might need to use a prybar to wiggle the cradle back in before tightening down your bolts. But once you're done there, after the installation is complete, we would recommend going out and getting a good alignment. So that's going to conclude my review of BMR's cradle bushing lockout kit, fitting your 2015 through 2017 Mustang, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Reduce Wheel Hop, Bushing Deflection, and Cradle Movement. The BMR Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit is designed to control cradle bushing deflection — the primary cause of wheel hops or unwanted movements during acceleration. This bushing lockout kit eliminates movement in any plane by capturing the inner bushing sleeve, the outer lip of the bushing cup, and the bottom portion of the bushings' inner sleeve.

    Easy Installation Using Common Hand Tools. The bolt-on kit attaches to your Ford Mustang's existing bolt holes and hardware, thereby cutting down the installation time. The entire process can be finished in just 1 to 2 hours.

    Say Goodbye to Noise, Vibration, and Harshness. Stock bushings either eliminate NVH or improve vehicle performance. However, accomplishing both is asking for too much. This isn't the case with the BMR Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit. Testing showed that the kit doesn't affect NVH while effectively reducing bushing and cradle deflection.

    Application. This BMR Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit is made to fit all 2015-2019 Ford Mustang models.

      Not a fix for hop

      The kit firms up the rear somewhat but doesn't do anything for wheelhop at the drag strip. It is possible that hop could be eliminated if this mod is combined with others but, by itself, it is not a cure.

      Great bang for the buck.

      It doesn’t completely get rid of wheel hop but it eliminates it a great deal. Definitely will recommend this to people to get that rear planted.

      Cradle Lockout

      No issues with the installation, be aware that wheel well height at the rear of vehicle will increase 1/4” when installing this kit due to the upper lockout rings.

      My second lockout kit

      I did the CB005 I think it was on my last S550 but did this level 1 lockout on my latest one because it’s a convertible model. Everything is the same except there’s no tubular brace and it appears to do the exact same thing for a lot less . Mine is a DD auto putting 700 to the tire and there was a noticeable difference in how the vehicle loses traction on street tires with this mounted up. It eliminates most of the noticeable wheel hop. I won’t be able to put my drag radials under it again until spring but we’ll see how much hop reduction these accomplish with those soon enough. I also installed the BMR differential bushing inserts (red delrin) when I did my one piece driveshaft but took them back off for NVH reasons and trying to isolate if the vibration was from gears or the shaft I installed. I should have done them separately. I may put the bushing inserts back in but for now the lockouts doing a fine job. There’s no time choices other than less than an hour or a whole afternoon but on jack stands and having done it before it was somewhere between 1-2 hours to do it right.

      Must have!!!

      Installed some BC racing coilovers recently but kept hearing some noise. I purchased these in a heart beat and that's I'll I needed. Very easy to install I was surprised that I didn't need to take it to a shop
