Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com. Here they're reviewing the install of the BMR Drive Lowering Springs, 2005 to 2014 GT Mustangs. I'm gonna be talking about a few different things with these springs, but mostly we'll talk about what you can expect from these springs and both the performance and looks categories. We're also gonna talk about the install as well. I'll talk more about the install later, but you're looking at a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The BMR Drag Lowering Springs are gonna be a good option for the GT owners out there, that are looking for a spring that will perform for both the daily driver and the drag car. These are a crossover spring that are made to function in both worlds, so they're soft enough for the track, but they give enough support to keep the body of the car flat in level through corners. Lowering Springs have a big impact on the looks and handling of the S197 chassis. These springs are a linear spring that are gonna offer pretty big drop for these cars. These springs will drop the GT about one and a half inches and like I said, it doesn't get much lower than this for the S197 from the spring, and it may not sound like it but that's a pretty big drop. Depending on wheel entire set, this drop is going to eliminate a lot of the wheel gap that the car has from the factory, and it's gonna leave the car sitting nice and even a little above the tires, but of course that can change depending on what size wheels you are on. A one inch drop or just under a one inch drop is pretty standard across the board for this year range. The car sits pretty high on the factory set up, so the one and a half inch drop is pretty aggressive. I mean aggressive in both looks and performance changes. This drop will lower the car center of gravity enough to create more track like handling capabilities. These springs are really gonna reduce squat during acceleration and reduce will hop as well. You're also looking at much less body roll during cornering and less nose dive under braking. Lowering the center of gravity this much means that these springs are really gonna change and tighten up the handling of these cars. Everything that these springs have too much of a drop or you really wanna hang on to some of those softer ride quality characteristics, there are tons of other spring offerings that you guys can always check out. Now these springs do offer a good amount of drop, but this doesn't mean that they won't work on a daily driving car, they work just fine. It really all comes down to your personal preference and what you want out of these springs. These springs were specifically designed to be a crossover spring between both drag racing and daily driving, so you don't have to worry too much about a rough ride quality. Now with that being said, I wanna mention that these are linear springs. They're not the progressive rate springs that we tend to see that are gonna change as you drive. Linear springs have a constant rate of force per inch, so they have a one defined spring rate and that's it. So basically as the load on the springs increase, the spring compresses an amount directly proportional to that load. This makes the linear spring more performance oriented than a progressive rate spring. Progressive rate springs or variable rate springs have low initial spring rates that will increase as the spring is compressed to makes more softer and smoother ride quality. But keeping the drop to these particular springs offer in mind, they're still gonna work with both the factory wheels and the preconfigured wheel entire kits that are on the site. These springs aren't gonna make the car difficult to drive places, but you will need to be a little bit more careful. It gonna be stiffer than the factory springs as well, so you will notice more road noise. But I wouldn't say that these give a bad ride quality at all, it's just not as soft as factory. I do wanna say that a lot of times when you're shopping for lowering springs, you're also shopping for things like adjustable caster camber plates, and a new set of both shocks and struts. In this case, I wouldn't say that caster camber plates are necessarily required, but I will say that a one and a half inch drop is about the limit of where you need a set of adjustable CC plates, in order to get the alignment within spec. It's gonna be close, so a set of caster camber plates wouldn't be a bad idea at all. As far as shocks and struts, this goes back to the drop too. I'd say that you can get away with the factory shocks and struts in this case. I'd also say that this is the case, if you have components with relatively low mileage. Your shocks and struts have a ton of miles on them, I would replace them. When it comes to price, it all depends on how you buy these springs. BMR offers a full set for over $200 or you can purchase just the front or the rear springs. The front springs will cost you just over $100 and the rears will cost right about $100, so you do have some options there. Now as far as the price tag for the set of springs goes, these springs are gonna be one of the middle of the road options. Not the most expensive, but they're not the least expensive either. You're just looking to get your car lower and aren't concerned with ride quality, there are some other options on the side that cost a little less and will get you where you need to be. So the install here is gonna take about four hours and I'm gonna call it a two out of three wrenches in the scale. You need to have some knowledge to complete the install. So I'd recommend having a knowledgeable helping hand or taking this to a shop for the install especially since it's always a good idea to get an alignment after the install anyways. This install can be done on jack stands if you don't have access to a lift, but as usual, a lift would be your best bet here. And you need a few tools including a spring compressor, so make sure you have that before you start the install. You're gonna need to get down the springs and struts assemblies so everything like the wheels, brakes ABS lines will need to be moved out of the way, so you can pull the assemblies out of the car. The spring compressor will help you remove the spring from the strut and install the new front springs which are compressed and installed the same way. The struts assemblies go back the same way they came out, and they installs the same for both sides. The rear is nearly the same, you need to disassemble some items to get to the springs, but ultimately, you go to lower the rear axle to the point where the springs will be free. Just like the front, the rear springs install the same way that they're uninstalled, no surprises there. Rubber insulators are transferred over and you can install new bump stops. And after the new springs are in, you can begin reinstalling the shocks and everything else that you uninstalled. That's about all it's gonna take. Like I mentioned earlier, a fresh alignment after the install isn't a bad idea. Wrapping things up here, the BMR Drag Lowering Springs are a linear spring with an aggressive drop, and improvements in handling to make for a car that feels track ready. To drop the car one and a half inches and leave the car sitting above the wheels and tires. The springs are not difficult to install, they're in the middle of package as far as pricing goes, and you can check them out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

Performance Ready. Having a car that handles well when you're hugging those sharp corners daily driving or at the track is essential to performance. BMR's Red Drag Lowering Springs have been created to lower your Mustang 1.5 inches, give you a smooth ride and lower the center of gravity. These components not only give your ride that sleek and aggressive muscle car stance, but also allows for better handling. BMR created these springs to crossover between drag and daily driving. The springs are soft enough for the track and to give you a comfortable ride but provide enough support to keep the body of your ride flat through those hairpin turns.

Sleek Muscle Car Stance. It's a little difficult to imagine making your ride look meaner than it already does. With BMR's lowering springs you can do just that and feature a 1.5 inch drop to your ride. Good news too, these springs won't sag over time. Normal, stock springs have a tendency to wear out, sag and get rusty. Fortunately, BMR offers a solution to that. All BMR springs are made from chrome silicon high tensile wire. They are then wound on a CNC coiling machine, then compressed twice to give the springs a permanent set. BMR does this to ensure that over time your Mustang will still have that aggressive, lowered look no matter how much you drive and show it off.

Superior Construction. BMR makes sure to give the customer the best product as it can. As mentioned above, BMR compresses their springs twice and with this permanent set, helps to fight sag for the future. The springs are also stress relieved at 750 degrees F to make sure that most of the stresses that are prone to happen during the winding phase are gotten rid of. As an important step, BMR computer tests every spring made to ensure against spring sagging thus allowing you to keep that sleek, lowered look of your Mustang. BMR is also able to boast that all their lowering springs are made right here in the USA!.

Application. These BMR Performance Rear Lowering Springs are specifically designed for use on 2005 to 2014 GT models. Please choose and option above for front, rear or kit of 4 springs.

    Nice ride..

    Installed these with SR performance shocks and struts. The ride quality is great. Lowered the car well. The rear is still a little higher than the front keeping the muscle car look. Shop install about 4 hours with an alignment..

    Awesome Launch

    Installed these songs along with BMR lower control arms and the difference at the track is night and day. No more bouncing up and down on the launch with the soft stock springs, it just takes off like a rocket! Brought my 60ft down to 1.5 seconds. Install was pretty straight forward and easy and I was able to get it done in an afternoon after work in my garage with a buddy. I'll definitely be sticking with BMR on the rest of the suspension in the future.
