Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with an overview of this IRS Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit from BMR for the 2015 and newer Mustang. In this video, we're gonna discuss what this kit does and how to improve things for your S550, the materials and construction, and, of course, the install, as well. I'll go into more detail later, but the install for this kit is easy and it's a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The BMR IRS Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit is gonna be something that you should check out if you're looking for a way to combat some of the notorious wheel hop issues that come along with an IRS. The S550 is known for wheel hop, bushing deflection, and cradle movement, so BMR has designed this kit to combat all of that and keep the cradle centered under the car at all times, making for a big improvement in handling performance. So, if we talk generally here, and don't get into too many fine details, your differential is surrounded by and supported by your cradle. The cradle is the heart of the rear end and the IRS suspension, and there are a lot of components that touch the cradle. Now, of course, as usual, soft rubber bushings are used in the cradle, and Ford does that because they have very high standards when it comes to NVH, or noise vibration and harshness. The soft rubber bushings are needed to tune out bumps and give the ride quality that Ford wanted from this car. This means that there are soft rubber bushings that are isolating the IRS cradle from the chassis, which makes for a prime atmosphere for movement. When the cradle moves, that's when you get your dreaded wheel hop, and, of course, when the cradle moves, the geometry of the suspension changes, which is less than ideal if you're trying to hook up, drive spiritedly, or race your car. With all that in mind, BMR developed this kit as a way to kill off a lot of that wheel hop without having to replace the stock bushings and without adding a lot of unwanted NVH, because let's face it, the struggle is always finding that balance between creating an effective suspension that doesn't ride like crap. This kit has a few different components, but what you're looking at here, are lockout brackets, front, upper, and lower spacers, and rear, upper, and lower spacers that are made from billet aluminum and stainless steel and heavy duty one and five-eighths inch steel tubing. The upper bushing lockout rings are billet aluminum and they're made to combat the area of the inner bushing sleeve, both front and rear and the outer lip of the bushing cup on the cradle. The lower bushing location washers handle the bottom portion of the bushings' inner sleeves, and this means that both parts of the bushings' inner sleeves are taken care of. This is gonna combat nearly all of the movement, no matter what type of movement in the cradle. Then the cradle braces are gonna replace the factory sheer plates that keep the cradle centered perfectly under the car, and these bolt directly onto the frame to make sure the location of the cradle can't change no matter what. Of course, BMR fully tested and documented their testing of this kit. What they're noting here is no change in NVH and an 80% to 90% reduction in cradle bushing deflection. Now, a completely stock car with stock tires is gonna see a higher percentage of reduction, while you guys running sticky tires will see a little bit less of an improvement, but you're still gonna be within that 80% to 90% range. Either way, those are huge improvements, which means that this kit and this kit alone will go a very long way in reducing wheel hop in the S550, with 100% bolt on kit that keeps the stock bushings and doesn't add NVH. When it comes to price, you can expect to pay right about $200 for this kit. BMR does sell some components separately if you didn't want to go for the whole kit, but I will say right now that this kit is gonna be the most effective for you. In all honesty, it's not very expensive. You can always just tackle the differential bushings if you wanted to, but this kit saves you from having to do that. Moving on to the install, like I said earlier, this is a direct fit kit and you aren't replacing any bushings here, so the install is going to be straightforward and simple. You're looking at an hour or two, tops, in the garage and a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The job can be done on jack stands if you don't have access to a lift, but as always, a lift would make things easier for you, as long as you have a way to support the cradle, since it will need to be dropped. I'm gonna glaze over the details here, but BMR does give you an illustrated guide to help you with the install. Your rear wheels will need to come off, and the cradle is held in by four bolts. Once the cradle is unbolted, you'll need to lower it down to make room to insert the upper bushing cup. The cups go over top of the bushings and the cradle goes back up into position, but don't bolt it down yet. The lower front spacers go over the bottom of the front bushing and the cradle supports can be lined up. Once you have all of this lined up, you can make the cradle flush with the frame and tighten the main bolts down. Before you really tighten everything down though, you will need to make sure that the cradle was centered, and BMR will tell you step by step how to do this. Wrapping things up with the BMR IRS Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit, this is a kit that's designed to eliminate nearly all of the cradle movement that causes wheel hop in the S550, without having to replace the factory cradle bushings. The kit has a few components that are gonna address any and all possible movement in the cradle and keep it centered under the car at all times no matter what. As always, I suggest you check it out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

Ideal Replacement. If you drive your S197 GT Mustang like it's meant to be driven, it's easy to burn out your weak stock clutch. If you're starting to feel your Mustang's clutch slipping or are getting that unmistakable burning clutch smell, an Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch with Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is an affordable, upgraded OE style replacement that will fit your budget and your driving style.

Great for Daily Drivers. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch combines an organic compound disc with a high clamp pressure plate that delivers superior durability with stock-like driveability. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch is the perfect clutch for the street-driven, mildly modded, daily driven Mustang. Exedy's Stage 2 clutch firms up your pedal for a sporty feel without the on-off characteristics of a true race clutch and is good to 510 ft-lbs of torque at the Rear Wheels.

Premium Quality. The Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 clutch is designed to offer the durability of an upgraded performance clutch with the main focus on keeping the great street driveability of a stock unit. All of Exedy's discs feature spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock.

Application. This Exedy Mach 400 Clutch with Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is designed for 2005 to 2010 4.6L V8 Mustangs with a TR3650 manual 10-spline transmission, including the GT and Bullitt models.

Specifications:
  • Disc Dimensions: 280mm outer diameter
  • 10 Spline
  • Torque Rating @ Rear Wheels: 510 ft-lbs
  • Includes hydraulic throwout bearing, alignment tool and pilot bearing

It's recommended that you add an SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line during your new clutch install. Stock plastic clutch lines can fail during aggressive driving. Stainless steel clutch lines help prevent gear lockout and provide superior clutch pedal feel, even under the toughest conditions.

I have a 2010 Mustang GT convertible 5spd with the Roush TVS2300 560R Brenspeed Kit. Kit says 458ftlbs of Torque. This car is never raced in quarter mile applications, only open Highway speed runs and regular driving. Is this clutch going to be enough for that application?

    Great for daily driving and track!

    The pedal feels noticeably softer than stock and it is has a very satisfying "bite" when going through the gears. Throwout bearing does at it should and is a great combo to change all at once. I also like the fact that they throw in a new pilot bearing for you to use instead of using the stock one. Im now squeaking 4th gear lol. Great product and fast shipping as always.

    Very happy!

    My OEM clutch setup bit the dust when my TOB/SC assembly got torched when dragging some Mopar... I went with this setup plus the lightweight flywheel, and McLeod braided clutch line and couldn't be happier! The clutch grabs very hard and the pedal feel is near perfect. I've also noticed with a more aggressive clutch like this, it is much harder to burn the clutch or hurt it. Very solid setup on a full bolt on 3V! Oh and also the flywheel did make the car rev much faster. Don't cheap out on that.... I almost did and am glad I didn't!

    Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 Clutch Kit

    I ordered many parts from AM and have been very happy with my previous purchases and their customer service. I recently completed a fresh motor build and decided to replace the clutch given that it was accessible. I read all the reviews and thought I was getting a good product. I was initially impressed with this clutch after coming from a Spec 3 . After a little more than a 1000 miles the clutch slave cylinder has gone out, I have fluid coming from the front of the transmission, it wont hold pressure and will not go into gear. The manufacture will not honor the warranty given it is only a 60 day warranty from the date of purchase. Exedy claims a better stronger more reliable slave cylinder but I could attest that this is not the case. I was expecting a much better product quality given claims. Do yourself a favor when replacing your clutch buy an OEM slave cylinder and stay away from this kit and Exedy itself. Research Exedy products on any Mustang forums for more insight. I'm replacing this clutch going back to the Spec 3 with an OEM slave cylinder which I had previously and was trouble free.

    2010 GT Daily Driver

    I replaced my oem clutch right at 90K miles. This kit is awesome...pedal feel is really close to stock, but thats the only thing that stayed the same. Bite on this clutch is great for my daily driver and i'd recommend this combo for anyone looking for an upgrade. I did all of the work myself and it took me right at 2 days. This was my first time removing a transmission and clutch but it wasn't too bad...just have patience, beer and and a buddy to help if needed.

    Solid Clutch with Nice Engagement

    This Mach 400 clutch and slave cylinder kit replaced my '07 GT's stock clutch which was going on 94K miles. The stock clutch plate was showing signs of its age while driving, and when replaced it was observed that the clutch plate friction material was worn down to the top of a couple of the rivet fasteners. It was good timing for the replacement. With the new slave cylinder and clutch, the engagement is smooth and only marginally heavier than stock (almost noticeable). I am still working on the 500mi break-in period for the clutch, so no hard launches yet, but the clutch grabbed hard on the first few miles until I got use to it! I had a local performance shop do the install as after much research, I decided I was not going to to do the job in the driveway and I don't have access to a lift. The shop did an excellent job buttoning everything back up and they used a digital SnapOn torque wrench to torque all the fasteners to spec. While they had the transmission dropped, I replaced the flywheel (Exedy lightened steel), new ARP bolts for flywheel, FRPP pilot bearing, and the revised bell-housing separator plate from Ford. One complaint I have with this kit is the included pilot bearing had junk inside the pre-greased bearing roller area as the bearing was loose in the Exedy box with the pressure plate and clutch. The bearing should really be put into a ziplock bag during transport. It was not an issue since I had already purchased the FRPP bearing from AM which came in a bag within the Ford box, but I definitely wouldn't have used the bearing supplied in this kit for the install.

    Great buy

    My 05 gt clutch went on me, ordered from American Muscle and as usual they delivered. Got my product just in time for my next work day and had it installed by my mechanic. It is alway a great experience ording from this company never any issues, i have ordered pretty much all my wheels, tires, an alternator and 4inch cowl hood with never any problems with this company. So far so good with the clutch 100x better than stock very smooth shifting into gears and great pricing highly recommend this since my local ford autherized dealership service department told me i would be looking at over $800.00 for just a stock clutch kit from ford. So why waste money on it. Thanks AM!

    OK

    Bought this for my 09 GT. old clutch wasn't bad (50,000 miles), needed to upgrade drivetrain for HP increase. Install took about 5-6 hrs (have done clutches before) dowel pins and pumping the pedal were pain, but everything else went smoothly. The clutch Bite was really strong for the first 500 miles. You should expect a slight increase in NVH for the first few hundred miles, not bad but noticeable. The 750 mile break in period was complete torture as my car is a toy and not a daily driver. Took about 8 weeks of driving like Grandma to reach the break in mileage. I paired this with the Exedy light weight flywheel and SS braided clutch line. The flywheel made a nominal increase in rev quickness I expected more. Go aluminum if you can afford it. I have about 3000 miles on clutch now, it bites better than stock with no difference in pedal feel. I have a rear tire fire each time I drive the car and am generally abusive when I take the car out. I have not noticed any burning clutch smell at all when running hard or racing.

    Great Product with a Great Price

    I purchased this clutch based on the reviews and Exedy's reputation. I also went with the stage 2 because I am going to install a Kenny Bell supercharger next spring. Now, the stock clutch worked well up to about 90k miles but then the clutch started getting very hard to press and by 112k it wasn't fully disengaging. It took me a little over a weekend to replace the clutch because several bolts on the exhaust were stuck and I had to persuade them with some Sea Foam Deep Creep overnight. I also had to wait until Monday to have the flywheel professionally resurfaced. The install only took 4 or 5 hours after I had everything ready. The clutch and pressure plate fitment was perfect with the included alignment tool. I installed the hydraulic release bearing hose and then used a brake bleeder vacuum tool to bleed the line and removed the air. After getting everything back together and taking it for the test drive, I almost put my foot through the floorboard. The engagement is so smooth and light compared to what I was used to it took a little while to reorient myself to the new lighter feel. Don't let the light pedal pressure fool you though. The engagement is crisp and strong. Now I can't wait to put 750 miles on it to get it broke in, then the real testing begins. I highly recommend this product due to the fact it comes with everything you need to get the job done properly.

    Good fit and feel, firmer than stock pedal feel.

    Fits well and comes with the alignment tool and the pilot bearing making a complete install ready set. Grip is smooth and firm with no adverse issues. The only negative is it does have a slightly firmer pedal feel. My wife has issue with that. I only agree with her concern when stuck in stop and go traffic.
