Hey, guys, Stephanie with Here with a review of BMR's Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets fitting all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. BMR's rear lower control arm relocation brackets are going to be a good option for the lowered S197 owners that are looking for a way to keep the geometry correct in the rear suspension and create a better angle for the lower control arms. A better angled lower control arms means less wheel hop and better traction. Traction wheel hopper issues that the factory rear suspension allows for and the more power and torque that your car's making the worse the problems seems to get. Lower control arms are very beneficial to help with these issues, but if you've lowered your S197 then you might still be seeing a lot of these characteristics in your suspension. And so the relocation brackets are going to put the lower control arms at a better angle to correct these issues. These relocation brackets are specifically designed to work with BMR's lower control arms, but they can still be used with the stock control arms as well. But modifications may be necessary for the install if you're still rocking the factory arms. Relocation brackets are generally used more with aftermarket control arms since the control arms are the first place to start. And like I mentioned, relocation brackets are almost necessary for a proper set up if you've lowered your car at all because it can be hard to get the correct angle out of the control arm otherwise. With control arms, it really is all about the angle. Once you get the correct set up in the rear, you're looking at gaining benefits like better launches, smooth cornering and power delivery, and of course, better performance at the track as well. A lot of times lower control arms are not right without these relocation brackets, which is why these things are so important. These brackets are pretty hardy. They're made from 3/16th-inch steel plates that are CNCed [SP] and laser cut. So they're very solid and can support high horsepower and torque. They're also powder coated for a nice finish. And yes, these are going to be visible under the car. These brackets basically act as an extension for the factory mounting location, and they're going to move the lower control arm down so it will hang lower. But like I said, this is so the lower control arm can have a better angle and perform better, but the tradeoff's going to be some lower hanging suspension components. This just means that you'll have to watch your ground clearance, especially with lowered cars. Depending how low you're sitting certain situations can be tricky, and if you aren't careful, you may find yourself bumping these things on the pavement at certain points like pulling into a steep driveway, on a curve, or at a gas station. So just be aware of that. Personally, I think the benefits of these brackets offer far outweigh the downsides of having to be a little bit more careful, and we are going to install these for you to see so you can check out what I mean in a minute here. One thing to keep in mind is that the lower control arm relocation brackets will help performance wise with things like better traction, better hooking, and better handling. But they are only one component of a handful of other pieces that all work together. If you're really looking to improve things in the rear, there are a handful of other components that you should look into as well like aftermarket lower control arms if you don't already have them, and an adjustable upper control arm setup or a panhard bar just to name a few things. But these are still a finishing step for some aftermarket lower control arms that will certainly help to eliminate even more of the wheel hop and get the rear more stable allowing for harder launches and keeping the suspension more consistent. As far as price, these brackets are going to cost a little over $100, and these are on the less expensive side of the offerings. Ford Racing, Steeda, and Whiteline also have some options too if you wanna check those out, but just keep in mind the brand of lower control arms that you have or plan on getting since sometimes crossing brands doesn't work out too well. So the install here is really pretty easy, and I'll give you a quick overview of the install so you can decide if this is something you'd like to try for yourself or not. You are going to need to get the rear of the car in the air and remove the rear wheels of course. The lower control arm will need to be removed so you have access to the area so the lower control arm bolt has to be backed out. The relocation bracket just goes right over the OE mount, and you can use the gold bolt spacer to hold the bracket to the OE mounting location, but don't tighten it down yet. The short 14 mm bolt and nut from the hardware packet go in the upper mount of the bracket, and you can tighten and torque that down like the directions say to. After that, it's just a matter of positioning the control arm into the desired location. You do have an option of three mounting locations here, and then insert the new bolt and nut and torque that down. Both sides install the same way, and overall, this is one wrench install on our scale here and should take about two hours to complete. Wrapping things up here these Lower Control Relocation Brackets from BMR are a quick and easy way to make your lower control arms even more effective by positioning them differently than the stock mount can. They work perfectly with BMR Lower Control Arms, and they're a very solid bracket that'll hold up to higher horsepower and torque ratings. You can check these relocation brackets out some more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at

I'm a bit confused. Are Lower Control Arm Relocation brackets still necessary on a lowered mustang if you have Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arms?


  • Well, the adjustable rear UCA and the rear LCA relocation brackets serve to correct two separate angles in the rear suspension geometry. One does not substitute for the other. When you lower your mustang you essentially compress (jounce) the rear suspension, positioning the axle up closer to the chassis. Control arms and driveshaft flex/pivot up with the axle, placing them at an unfavorable angle. An adjustable rear UCA allows for correction of the pinion angle after lowering your mustang while also adding strength and rigidity. Pinion angle is critical to driveshaft operation. The rear LCA relocation brackets correct the LCA angle (geometry) so that your rear axle will not be prone to "axle wrap" or twisting of the rear axle under heavy torque. The lower you drop your mustang's suspension, the more both of these modifications are necessitated to maintain the best level of performance and rigidity.

instructions Do these come with installation instructions? I am looking at an entire bmr control arm setup but have no experience in setting everything up.


  • The installation insructions come with the brackets and are easy to understand. With the proper tools, which are listed on the instructions, you should be looking at about 30-45 minutes per side - giving a few extra minutes if you are installing adjustable LCA's.

Relocation bracket hangs down over 2" - any clearance issues? We are installing the lower control arms today and I purchased the relocation bracket. Ford is telling me that if they use the relocation bracket, the bracket itself will hang down 2 - 3 inches, about the same height as the wheel rim. That means that you only have about 3 - 4 inches of clearance under your car. Anyone have any issues with speed bumps or hitting anything else? I'm thinking of not using these and returning them.


  • The relocation brackets are attached at the axle center, meaning that they travel up and down with the axle and wheel, so speed-bumps should not be an issue. However, I have heard of cases where automatic car washes can be an issue where the guiding track is concerned - since the wheel rides "inside" the track, allowing the "track edge" to hit the relocation bracket in some cases.

    Great Brackets but a issue with car washes

    I ordered the BMR Rear Lower Control Arms with Polyurethane Bushings and BMR Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets. I also installed BMR Upper Control Arm with On-car Adjustable and Polyurethane Bushings. My goal was to stop wheel hop and help with the wheels spinning at the track. The combination of the BMR productions did stop wheel hop and help with traction. The Install of the relocation brackets was pretty easy and the brackets fit perfectly. My only issue with the relocation brackets is ground clearance in gas station car washes. I went to a car wash at a Bucky’s BP station and the bracket hit the tire guide rail. I pulled in about 10 feet into the car wash and heard a nasty scraping noise and my car came to an abrupt stop. I slowly backed out of the car wash once I made it out I could see scrap marks on the top of the guide rail. I looked under the car and the driver side bracket looked fine other then the bare metal showing on the bottom of the bracket. I ended up taking the brackets off and will have to cut at least a 1 ½ off the bottom of the bracket so my car will clear the car wash tire guide rail. I would still highly recommend the bracket but just be warned clearance in gas station car washes could be an issue.

    These brackets are very solid and made to support high HP/TQ applications. Also, they are great for correcting the geometry of your suspension by re-positioning the LCA's and almost a must on lowered applications. Install was somewhat involved as getting certain bolts into the brackets is not very easy. I would honestly suggest having the brackets installed professionally after having done the install myself. Note, I did not re-use the stock "weight dampers" as I don't think they are necessary after all of my upgrades (much more than just brackets). Very pleased with these brackets and highly recommend them!

    Worth While Upgrade!

    So I will start off and say you will also need drill, and a strap to pull back on the axle if you don't have adjustable LCA. With that said. The Passenger side on the 11 doesn't line up with the axle weight. you have to drill out the hole to make it larger. With all that above its well worth it! BMR should change the passenger side axle weight hole location and make it larger. Good mod! Hooks like crazy

    BMR rocks!

    Installed on my 2012 Boss. I had previously lowered and installed upper and lower control arms. It made the rear end kind of harsh and I could tell something was just not right. Installation of the relocation brackets was simple and straightforward. The fit was perfect and the only trouble I had was getting the car up high enough afterwards to check the pinion angle. Went for a test drive and WOW! My suspension issues are resolved! The car launches better, is much more sure-footed in the corners, and is so much more smooth... If you've lowered your Mustang, these LCA relocation brackets are a must! Corrects poor suspension geometry and as a bonus, are great looking too. BMR is the best!

    Incredible Difference!

    I installed these along with the Eibach Pro Adjustable LCA's due to my GT already being lowered. The install was easy, and taking my time it took me about 3 hours total.(including the LCA's). This install of the LCA's was a little tricky due to the installation of the relocation brackets, as the length of the LCA will need to be slightly adjusted depending upon which relocation bracket mounting hole is used, as the LCA will move in an arc and will need to be lengthened or shortened depending on the mounting hole used. After the install the car handles much better and wheel-hop is completely eliminated, and cornering is much improved via changing the roll-steer effect.

    BMR has a solid product in their LCA relocation brackets

    Recently received my BMR brackets.They are well constructed and feel very sturdy. Fitment was perfect, all hardware was supplied, and the instructions were relatively easy to understand. I installed them on my 2013 GT with some new LCA's in about an hour and a half with the car on a lift. Unless your Mister Universe, you'll need help to realign the rear axle with the control arms. I used a ratchet strap attached to the axle in the rear and a cross brace in the middle of the car to pull the axle forward. You need some sockets & wrenches (18mm and 22mm), and a torque wrench (capable of 129 ft.lbs) for final tightening. Haven't got to the track yet to compare 60ft. times, but the improved geometry makes the rear end feel more connected with the road at launch and in the corners. I recommend these based on ease of install, quality construction/appearance, and a fair price.

    Helpful After Lowering

    I drove my 07 GT on P Springs (1" drop), orange Koni's and BMR rear upper and rear lower control arms (and some other stuff) WITHOUT these relocation brackets for about 15,000 miles and the car handled great. The rear lower control arms were angled slightly upwards. I installed these and used the highest (least extreme) setting so that the rear lower control arms are now angled downward as they should be. The handling difference is modest and slightly noticeable but the car does feel a little more stable now. I do not regret installing these and would do it again. The product has great quality, inexpensive (relative to other mods) and installed about 3 hours in my driveway with jack stands. For these reasons, I give the product 5 stars.

    Very well made product! You just can't go wrong with BMR. The fit was perfect and the install is was fairly easy. The car hooks a lot better you can actually feel a big difference in front end of the car coming up when you get into it which is why it hooks better, the weight is transferred to the rear like it should be. If your Mustang is lowered these relocation brackets are a must!

    BMR is a very good way to remove squat out of the go

    After researching rear LCA relocation. I thought to give BMR a try. It was an expensive way to get rid of the squat out of the go. Since I got a decent discount from AM I also bought JM rear LCA and installed them the same day. I figure if the new Boss mustang had relocated the LCA (with a bolt on) also upgraded the rear LCA that it was worth the try. BMR did a great job on the fitment. All the hardware came with it. There were no issues in the fitment. If you are going to attempt this install DIY. To get the LCA to line up it took a second person. One pushed and the other pulled, working one side at a time with both wheels off the ground. Also remember when torquing the BMR bracket up to tighten the wieght balancers first. It fits tight. After setting the LCA in the top hole, my 2011 GT has no squat in the go!!! There's no binding in the suspension or steering issues. I managed a 2nd gear burn out without using the brakes. But I have noticed that the stock manual transmission has gotten a little louder. But shifting isn't an issues. Small price to pay for performance.
