    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, here with my detailed review and install of the BMR Anti-Wheel Hop Package, available in the hammertone finish, fitting your 2005 to 2014 Mustang. In this video, I plan on breaking down the benefits of installing these two components here from BMR. We'll quickly touch on the materials and construction, and then, last but not the least, I'll give you a few talking points of the install process. And, speaking of the install, guys, this is a 100% bolt-on job, no cutting, no welding, making for a relatively soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with some more detail later in the video.So, BMR's Anti-Wheel Hop Kit will be just that, a solution for lowered S197 owners out there suffering through that dreaded wheel hop due to poor traction, soft rubber factory bushings, and incorrect lower control arm angles. By installing these two parts here from BMR, their fixed-length lower control arms, and their relocation brackets, Mustang owners will be able to correct the suspension geometry, improving your traction in the process. And in my opinion, the BMR kit that we have here will be a great option for 95% of owners out there, guys who spend most of their time on the streets, with a few occasional track restrict days mixed in for good measure. And I'm saying that because the polyurethane bushings used in the fixed-length lower control arms here from BMR, yes, they're a huge upgrade over those softer but factory bushings, but at the same time they're still gonna do a great job of soaking up any extra noise, vibration, and harshness much better than a spherical bearing would. Now, those other 5% of owners out there might be the hardcore road race guys or all out drag cars who might be interested more in an adjustable set of lower control arms with those spherical bearings to make small changes to the thrust angle and also the pinion angle as well. Now, just so you know, BMR does offer a few different sets here at AM that will offer some adjustability in addition to the spherical bearings. Feel free to check those out if you'd like. But, in my opinion, the fixed lower control arms, like we have here, in addition to an adjustable upper control arm, which is not shown here, will be the most common and easiest way to lock down that rear end while still being able to control your pinion angle.Well, let's break down this kit here from BMR a little further. And, again, at its core it aims to fix a very common problem in the S197, that pretty bad wheel hop on the hard acceleration, and as a 2014 GT owner, I can totally relate to this problem. And, again, it is caused by a couple of different issues, but I think the biggest is those soft rubber factory bushings loaded in those factory lower control arms, which can cause some deflection under load, making that rear end move around a little bit when you're really getting on it, and that can sometimes lead to that excessive wheel hop. Now, I also tend to believe these cars are a little under damped from the factory in addition to those stock tires being a little questionable, but that's neither here nor there. My point is this wheel hop issue can oftentimes be fixed using a kit like this and two very basic components. First, let's break down these lower control arms here, again, from BMR. You're looking at a fixed length design, meaning you're not gonna be able to adjust the length of these things, but I really don't think that's gonna be a big deal, especially if you factor in that upper control arm, which is something I highly recommend, by the way, if you're lowered more than one and a half inches and you're rocking a one-piece driveshaft, as it would be very important to correct that pinion angle. But that's a topic for another video. Now, the BMR lowers do feature that fully TIG welded box steel construction here, and they have been finished off in BMR signature hammertone powder coat. You can also grab this kit in red if you prefer. They're also loaded with those high-durometer polyurethane bushings that we briefly mentioned earlier. These things are greasable, which will help prolong the life of the bushings themselves in addition to helping to keep things a little bit more quiet over the years. Part two of the equation are the relocation brackets here from BMR as well. And these guys will be absolutely vital in correcting those improper lower control arm angles, especially if you're lowered more than one and a half inches. And chances are, if you are, your angles probably could use a little bit of love. Now, the idea here behind these guys is you want those lower control arms to be parallel with the ground, or if anything, slightly titling downward from front to back with the suspension fully loaded up. BMR does give you three holes to work with here. I always like to recommend starting with that middle hole and just kinda going from there to see what those things look like. Now, if you really wanted to get technical, you'd factor in things like your ride height, your instant center, your center of gravity, and your anti-squat to really fully determine what angle would be ideal for your setup in addition to what you're setting the car up for, whether it be drag racing or road course use. But, again, for most owners out there, as long as those lower control arms are parallel to the ground or slightly tilting downward from front to back, you should be good to go.Now, these brackets have been CNC laser cut from thick heavy duty steel plating and have been finished off in that same hammertone powder coat, just like those lower control arms. Again, you can grab the entire package in red if that's something you prefer. Now, BMR is actually one of the first companies to develop a relocation bracket like this, and over the last decade, they've kinda tweaked to refresh their design to what you see here today, and according to BMR, it's working rather well. In fact, there are a few S197 owners out there ripping off 11:1260 foot times with the lowers and brackets installed, so needless to say they're doing a pretty good job. But that doesn't mean drag guys are gonna have all the fun with this kit installed here from BMR. In fact, guys that prefer the twisty roads will be able to see some benefits as well, helping to put that power down throughout the turns, getting better control of that rear axle through those superior bushings, and better geometry, thanks to those relocation brackets.Pricing-wise, the BMR kit is gonna run you right around $250, which in my opinion is a steal when you consider you're getting rid of that annoying wheel hop and getting some better traction in the process. In fact, check out some of the customer reviews, they tend to back me up on this pretty well. I have these lowers on my car. I absolutely love them. They do help eliminate some of that wheel hop, and the best part is they're very easy to install. And, as I pointed out, this is gonna be a very pedestrian one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe an hour or two of your time from start to finish. You're looking at a very simple install here, guys. In fact, just a couple of bolts, basic socket set is really all you need as far as tools are concerned. BMR does toss in all the hardware as well for those relocation brackets. Obviously, you're gonna need a way to get the car in the air, so a jack and jack stands, or a lift, whatever you have laying around the shop or garage. And pro tip here, guys, don't forget a couple of Burley zip ties to secure those emergency brake cables to the BMR lower control arms, because otherwise they will be dangling around if you don't do so. As someone who has reaped the benefits of these lower control arms on my own personal S197 GT, I have absolutely no complaints. The BMR stuff is built well, fits great. It will fix a common problem without destroying anyone's budget. So, if you have a lowered S197, and you're suffering through some of that dreaded wheel hop, be sure to check out the Anti-Wheel Hop Kit from BMR, right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Anti-Wheel Hop Package. Significantly improve your street, road or drag race performance with this well designed kit, including boxed rear lower control arms and relocation brackets from BMR Suspension. Made in the USA, this package has the components you need to decrease deflection under load, transfer power to the tires and improve traction. Upgrading to this Anti-Wheel Hop Kit will let you launch harder, corner tighter and obtain a more responsive feel from your S197 Mustang.

    Lower Control Arms. The stock lower control arms on your Mustang are made with stamped steel and soft rubber bushings. These tend flex and deflect under load and absorb power that should be used by your tires. BMR's control arms are constructed from heavy duty boxed steel tubing that has been TIG-welded for extra durability. This boxed design ensures long lasting strength and responsiveness. BMR then completes their Lower Control Arms in a durable black hammertone powder coated finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Polyurethane Bushings. The stock bushings on your 2005-2014 Mustang are made of soft rubber and deflect far too much. The 95-durometer Polyurethane bushings provide improved ride quality and absorb noise, vibration and harshness during every day driving. They also maintain enough firmness to handle high compression loads from hard launches and accelerations. The poly bushings found in this package are internally fluted and greasable, which results in consistent lubrication and performance.

    Three Position Relocation Brackets. Reposition the instant center on your Mustang using the included bolt-on control arm relocation brackets. BMR designed their brackets with three (3) adjustment positions. This allows you to fine tune the handling balance of your S197 Mustang to suite your specific driving needs whether it's street, autocross or road racing. By correcting the angle of the arms, you modify the rear suspension geometry and increase anti-squat for better traction. Manufactured from heavy duty laser cut, CNC-formed steel plate, the relocation brackets securely bolt into place.

    Application. This black hammertone BMR Anti-Wheel Hop Package is designed to fit all 2005-2014 Ford Mustangs, including V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

    Why is this package more expensive than buying the lower control arms bars and brackets separately? Am I missing something?

    KenW

    • The BMR Steel Anti-Wheel Hop Package will include the BMR Rear Lower Control Arms TCA019R and BMR Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets CAB005R which will, if purchased separately, cost more than the kit. You may be comparing this with the BMR Rear Lower Control Arms TCA032R which are a lower cost alternative. The BMR Control arms have many differences, despite looking very similar. Most noticeably, the more expensive TCA019R will be constructed of 1.25"x2" boxed steel and will be TIG welded for a very strong control arm to stand up to the abuse of dedicated track cars and serious street/strip machines. The TCA032R will be constructed of 1"x2" square steel tubing, and is MIG welded, making an excellent option for street cars where cost is a big factor.

    do i really need those "adjustment bracket" if my suspension is std height? if i install just the arms only would that fix my wheel hope problem i was told those brackets are only required if i lowered my suspension and they are only there to adjust arm angle is that thru

    simonb

    • The adjustment brackets on the control arms are to adjust for a proper alignment and are recommended for lowered vehicles but can still be used on a standard height one.

      Easy installation

      Can tell the difference, car hooks up like never before and the ride difference in not noticed. Took me and my son around 2 hours to install was perfect fitment, used jack stands so was kind of difficult to get position to torque down to 135 foot pounds with limited room and to my surprise the drivers side took half the time as passenger side.

      hooks up good

      when i first got my 5.0 i noticed it has plenty of power but you cant barely use any of it with stock control arms. ford should of put them in from factory especially for a high horsepower car like the coyote. install was very easy on a lift took about an hour total taking my time, very easy install even comes with instruction papers, i can finally rip through all the gears as wanted and is definitely a must have even for the street. my whole suspension is stock other then this anti wheel hop package and it works great, highly recommend this product hooks up when pushing it like no tomorrow and not to mention it looks great underneath i got the ones in red. again must have even for stock mustangs at least

      Noticeable Handling Difference

      With the stock LCA's the rear end of my car would always kick out to the left when I spun the tires. With this kit installed the car now spins the tires in a straight line. Very beefy high quality components in this kit, much sturdier than the stock components. Install took about 2 hours. You can install this kit by yourself if you do one side at a time and use a ratchet strap to pull the rear axel back into place during install (axle will shift an inch or so once you unbolt the stock LCA and its too heavy to shove back into place and align the new LCA/bolt at the same time just using your hands)

      Before I put these on the wheel hop in my car was really bad due to failing lca bushings, I put these on along with other some other suspension mods and now I have virtually no wheel hop, the car actually feels faster because your wheels aren't hoping and skipping, pretty sweet!

      Installed these in an afternoon in my garage along with the BMR drag springs. Took the car to the track and it was night and day difference on the launch. Brought my 60ft down to 1.5 and no wheel hop at all. The car just hooks and goes! These control arms and the springs are definitely great upgrades for a street/strip car.

      Worth it!

      Medium improvement over the stock arms, still had a little wheel hop but a definite improvement. Also noticed a little more road noise but not obnoxious. A week later I installed the BMR adjustable rear upper control arm. What a dramatic difference, no more wheel hop period! Firmly plants that power to the ground. Definitely worth the money. As far as the install, if your working alone and the axle shifts, using a cargo strap to pull it back into alignment works really well.

      Control arms are great

      I got this kit and got her all installed like great that was easy. Well when it got to the relocation brackets the instructions sucked so I looked up some videos, saw something about unbolting my panhand bar that took me forever to get into place and decided I didn't need relocation brackets that badly. But where my tires used to spin when I punched the gas they now hook up and I launch, great product

      Just Installed

      Just installed on my '12 Boss 302 LS, along with Ford Performance lowering springs, and the BMR adjustable panhard bar.. Everything fit well and installation was not too difficult. The written instructions were a bit vague and the photocopied photos were dark and not very helpful to see details. The hardware is slightly different for left and right sides, which was evident from test fitting, but not from the instructions. You can save yourself some time by watching the installation video first. The lowered stance looks much better and I am looking forward to a track session to see the difference in handling.

      Great kit and cheap too!

      Bought a set of these recently for a friend, I already have the relocation brackets/lower control arms in on my car from BMR. If you have any wheel hope issues, these will go a long way in fixing it. They are high quality, and never had any problems with BMR parts. Be sure to get some decent lithium grease for the bushings too! This kit along with an adjustable Upper control arm have remedied my wheel hop issue. Would recommend for anyone, especially in this kit to save a few bucks.
