BMR Suspension has created two unique systems to nearly eliminate bushing and cradle deflection. Why is this important? A reduction in bushing and cradle deflection lessens wheel hop under hard acceleration, increasing traction to get you to the finish line first!
The S550 Cradle Bushing Insert Kit simply fills the voids in the factory rubber bushings utilizing CNC laser cut and formed stainless steel inserts and bushing lockout plates that work in conjunction with the front cradle support plates to reduce bushing deflection. This kit is the most affordable way to accomplish this with no change in noise, vibration or harshness (NVH).
The S550 Mustang Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit is also designed to eliminate bushing deflection and is also designed to keep the rear differential cradle centered under all driving conditions. Positively locating the cradle under the center of the car keeping the tires planted inside the wheel wells, preventing tire rub and improving handling performance. The large lugs on the braces also create an easy to locate and high strength jacking point for the rear of your Mustang, making wheel and tire changes at the track quicker.
Throughout testing, BMR has seen about an 80%-90% reduction in fore/aft and lateral cradle bushing deflection. A car with no other mods and stock tires that isn’t driven overly hard is going to see a 90% or higher reduction, while a more race oriented S550 with sticky tires will see slightly less of a reduction. Launching the test vehicle at over 7,000 rpm on drag radials, BMR saw about an 80% reduction in bushing deflection. Through the testing BMR has seen a 95% or greater reduction in vertical deflection in all testing situations. When performance is a must, rely on BMR Suspension!
BMR Suspension’s CB005 Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit is available in black hammertone and red powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is 1-2 hours. Made in the U.S.A.!
***NOTE: This product does not currently work on Convertible models, unless you install it without the fore-end lower cradle braces.***
