BMR's Level 1 kit that we're working with today is gonna be a good option for the 2005-2010 Mustang owners out there that are looking to cut down on wheel hop and traction loss that we're all accustomed to while retaining a generally smoother ride quality, while also not picking up that noise vibration and harshness. Installation wise expect a fairly involved but an easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, about a four-hour job. I'll have a little bit more information for you coming up on that later.So, the stock components on the Mustang, while fine, are geared more towards comfort over performance and put simply guys they just weren't designed for the driver that wants to get the best traction possible. And it's inherent that they're gonna be a little bit on the flexible and mushy side. While they're great for getting you around from work or from point A to point B, doesn't really do too much for you in making your Mustang perform like it should. The stock bushings on your factory control arms are rubber too and you just aren't gonna cut it if you're looking for that stiffness which is gonna help reduce that wheel hop. So, if you drop the hammer and your rear ends bouncing all over the place, then you know what I'm talking about right now.So this kit's going to attack both problems with your Mustang's suspension. You're getting a strong tubular upper and lower control arm set, stiff polyurethane bushings that are gonna kill that wheel hop but they're still gonna keep things pretty comfortable inside. Even though you're taking that flexibility out of your stock setup, you're not gonna be feeling every bump and every pothole on the streets. These are really street-able. That's gonna be due to the polyurethane bushings which still are gonna help absorb that vibration and harshness.Now, if you're building a dedicated track car, you're gonna wanna look at something even stiffer like Deloraine bushings or spherical end links. Those are gonna offer almost no give because they're extremely rigid but that, in turn, is gonna give you a stiffer ride. Now, these polyurethane bushings are a big upgrade but they aren't gonna make you hate your drive to work in the morning. So, now that you know a little bit more about bushings you might be wondering at this point, "Well, what are the differences between this and BMR's Level 2 and then Level 3 kits?" And it's pretty simple here, guys. You're paying more. You're gonna be getting more traction but a stiffer ride for better performance.Now, the Level 2 kit is also going to include an upper control arm and mount on top of what's on the table here and that's going to even further improve cutting down on that traction loss. Now, in terms of Level 3 kit, that's gonna include the upper mount and lower adjustable control arm mounts. Now adjustable lower mounts more or less let you fine tune your suspension. And for lowering your car with a set of springs you're pretty much gonna need those on your car or it's gonna suffer tons of wheel hop. But what's really nice about BMR's parts is that you can buy everything later or piece by piece and level kit here is gonna be a good way to start small to see where you're gonna be working with to get that improvement.Keeping this in mind the anti-deflection bushings used are gonna be a large part of the equation but the lower control arms are gonna be manufactured out of a heavy duty box steel and a mid-welded upper control arm. Now, in terms of the pricing here guys, expect to be spending just around 200 bucks and it's really a no-brainer for how well they're gonna correct the wheel hop and traction loss, while also retaining that ride comfort.So, if your car lives at the track, you're not afraid of the price tag on the Level 2 or 3 kit, definitely suggest checking them out where you are gonna be getting the same components here but with the relocation bracket and the upper control arm mount. But when it comes time to install these, like I said earlier, you're looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here. Only needing a basic socket set and some jack stands.But you're to begin by pulling the rear lower portion of your seats in order to access the top bolt of the upper control arm mount. You're then gonna remove that. Now once done, you can get underneath the car and then work on the upper control arm to axle nut. Now, it's gonna take a little bit of effort to get it out, so don't be surprised. But once it's pulled, it's more or less just gonna be getting your BMR upper in place.On the lower control arms with the car still in the air you can then pull your control arms off with an 18 millimeter wrench or a socket. Now you'll want to lube your bushings and with the narrow end facing forward install them using the bolts cutting everything down. Simply repeat the process on the opposite side. So, that's gonna wrap up my quick review of BMR's Level 1 Rear Control Arm Package in hammertone fitting the 2005-2010 Mustang that could be found right here at americanmuscle.com.
