BMR Upper Control Arm w/ Polyurethane Bushing
Launching harder, reducing wheel hop, and adding cornering consistency to your 2005-2010 Ford Mustang is easy with an upper control arm from BMR Suspension. The stock control arm with soft rubber bushings deflect under load and absorb power instead of transferring it to the tires. BMR’s polyurethane, non-adjustable tubular control arm for S197 Mustangs (UTCA017) is manufactured from heavy-duty 1 5/8 inch, 0.120-inch wall DOM steel tubing. This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. Two-inch greasable, 95-durometer bushings add a solid, more responsive feel over the stock rubber bushings. BMR’s bushings are internally fluted, which keeps grease in the bushing, even under heavy load. These flutes also direct grease to the outer edge of the bushing, keeping the thrust surface lubricated. This efficient lubrication ensures quiet, reliable operation over the life of the bushings. BMR Suspension designed the UTCA017 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The stock control arm flexes under even light cornering loads giving you inconsistent handling characteristics. Combine this with soft bushings that have massive amounts of deflection and you’re left with poor performance. The UTCA017’s heavy-duty construction eliminates control arm flex, giving you much improved repeatability on the street, starting line, or in the corners. BMR’s polyurethane bushings are designed to be compliant enough to give you a comfortable ride and absorb NVH, while remaining firm enough to stand up to high loads of any performance environment. The bushings easily handle the high compression loads of hard launches and hard acceleration, yet offer plenty of articulation for great handling. These are the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast looking to improve performance, while maintaining acceptable NVH levels and ride quality. When performance is a must, rely on BMR Suspension! BMR Suspension’s UTCA017 non-adjustable polyurethane upper control arms are available in red and black hammertone powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is about 2-3 hours. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
*BMR strongly recommends upgrading the stock Upper Control Arm Mount when utilizing an aftermarket Upper Arm on S197 Mustangs. Clunking noise may become present without an upgraded Upper Control Arm Mount.
