    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.

    Package for Performance. If you're looking for suspension enhancements that will immediately impact your performance, BMR Suspension delivers! Install the parts in this vibrant red powdercoated BMR Anti-Wheel Hop Package and experience more responsive handling and improved control of your S197. As a fairly straightforward installation for the do-it-yourselfer, you can say goodbye to the control arm flex and bushing deflection of your factory installed components in just a few hours.

    Lower Control Arms. Stock control arms flex under cornering loads, which leads to unstable and inconsistent handling. Replace your factory Rear Lower Control Arms with these heavy-duty TIG-welded tubular steel upgrades. Finished in a durable red powdercoat, this pair of rear lowers will aid in eliminating that unwanted flex.

    Relocation Brackets. If you've lowered your Mustang, the angle and position of your lower control arms are now inaccurate. By using the supplied relocation brackets, you can correct these angles and lower the rear mounting to one of the three height positions. This lets you make instant center changes for street performance, road racing, and drag racing. These brackets are designed to withstand intense horsepower and torque as well as extreme launches.

    Better Bushings. The stock bushings on your 2005-2014 Mustang are made of soft rubber and deflect far too much. 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.

    Installation. BMR designed these steel anti-wheel hops to be installed with no welding needed, making it a bolt-on installation.

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

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Do you need to use the relocation bracket if you are at stock height?

    • The relocation brackets are not explicitly necessary however you will not realize the full benefit of the anti-wheel hop package without them. I would recommend purchasing the lower control arms themselves rather than the anti-wheel hop kit if you do not intend to use the relocation brackets.

    After installation of this kit i notice some vibration during hard acceleration, i placed the bolt in the center alignment hole on a stock height GT500. Is this where it should be placed and could this vibration be from the two piece drive shaft?

    • The BMR Steel Anti-Wheel Hop Package will utilize stiffer bushings than stock, which can transmit more vibrations. When installing the brackets, we recommend setting the car down to load the suspension, and checking to see if the control arms sit parallel to the ground, and adjusting as needed, as you want these as close as can be to being 100% parallel with the ground.

    I have bad wheel hop will this bmr kit stop it Do I need springs as well if so will I have to lower it

    • The BMR Steel Anti-Wheel Hop Package will help to reduce wheel hop. With the softer stock spring rates, you may still experience some wheel hop.

    Are these bushings greased already?

    • The BMR Steel Anti-Wheel Hop Package are not pre greased, and will need to be greased after installation.

      There were minor fit up issues. What hole selection you choose will involve your horsepower levels and what kind of racing / driving you're doing. This is not spelled out in the instructions. I contacted BMR for advice and they have EXCELLENT customer support. Very pleased.

      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

      Review from BMR Steel Anti-Wheel Hop Package - Hammertone (05-14 All)

      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!

      Awesome Launch

      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
