HPP001 - Handling Performance Package, Level 1
BMR Suspension has taken the guesswork out of making significant handling improvements to the 2005-2010 S197 Mustang, and put it in one convenient package. Countless hours of design, engineering, and track testing gives you the best combination of parts for improved handling on the street and track. Matching specific components provides a great blend of performance, aesthetics, and comfort.
BMR’s Level 1 Handling Package (HPP001) addresses key points of the suspension to improve the “system.” BMR Suspension designed the HPP001 to work well for street performance and handling applications. BMR’s Level 1 Handling Package is 100-percent bolt-in and require zero cutting, welding, or modification to the chassis or suspension. Whether you simply want a better handling daily driver, or the ultimate track day car, rely on BMR Suspension!
Lowering Springs (SP009)
BMR Suspension believes the right springs go beyond looks—your S197 needs to perform, too! All BMR springs are manufactured from chrome silicon high-tensile spring wire, and are cold wound on a CNC coiling machine. The CNC coiling head can adjust the spring diameter in real time to ensure that every spring is exactly the same. This guarantees that your right spring matches your left spring. Every BMR spring is compressed solid at the factory, not once, but twice. This gives the spring its permanent set, and guarantees no sag. BMR springs are stress-relieved at 750 degrees F, ensuring most stresses induced during the winding process are eliminated. All springs are then shot-peened to eliminate residual surface stresses. Many spring manufacturers skip this step, but BMR insists on this operation as part of our spring manufacturing process. Every spring is computer tested as the last step—every spring, not just a sample from each batch. Each spring is loaded in the spring tester at the factory, then compressed and the CNC load cell measures the force for a variety of spring lengths. This allows BMR to offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY against spring sag.
Blending aesthetics and performance, BMR has designed the SP009 for the street performance crowd who want to use their cars in a variety of application. These springs will drop the front end of your S197 Mustang 1.5-inches, and feature a fine-tuned spring rate (165lb front, 160lb rear) to give you great handling and a smooth ride. The linear spring rate offers plenty of support, keeping the body flat and level in the corners, while remaining soft enough for a comfortable ride on any road.
Front Sway Bars (SB022)
Stock sway bars have low torsional spring rates because they are manufactured from small diameter bar stock or tubing. BMR Suspension’s SB022 front sway bar was designed by factoring in the vehicle weight, application, motion ratio, coil spring rate, and adjustability requirements. Manufactured from heavy-wall 35mm DOM tubing, the SB022 is cold formed to better resist torsional fatigue and retain its "memory" far longer than the hot-formed bars used by many competitors. The sway bar is CNC-formed for exact manufacturing tolerances and repeatable high quality. Thrust washers are welded to the bar to locate the sway bar bushing mounts. This is critical as it properly locates the sway bar and prevents lateral movement during hard cornering maneuvers. The sway bar mounts to the car using polyurethane bushings. These bushings are molded from 88-durometer, low-deflection, polyurethane, and are internally fluted to keeps grease in the bushing. The steel sway bar mounting brackets are reinforced to minimize deflection. The sway bar is 3-way adjustable to tune the amount of torsional spring rate and to determine the handling characteristics (understeer/oversteer) of the vehicle.
Description Part 2
BMR Suspension designed the SB022 sway bar for street performance, autocross, and road race applications. The large adjustable sway bar’s three positions give you the versatility to drive to and from the road course or autocross and still out handle the competition with the same sway bar. The rate increases and adjustability allow you to fine-tune the handling characteristics of your Mustang so you can drive harder through corners with minimal body roll. The hollow design allows for loads of strength in the lightest package possible. This means increased performance with no sacrifices. The SB022 attaches to your Mustang with 88-durometer polyurethane bushings, reducing the deflection from the stock rubber bushings. This allows for more sway bar control, and more control equals better handling.
Rear Sway Bar (SB023)
Stock sway bars have low torsional spring rates because they are manufactured from small diameter bar stock or tubing. BMR Suspension’s SB023 rear sway bar was designed by factoring in the vehicle weight, application, motion ratio, coil spring rate, and adjustability requirements. Manufactured from heavy-duty 22mm bar stock, the SB023 is cold formed to better resist torsional fatigue and retain its "memory" far longer than the hot-formed bars used by many competitors. The sway bar is CNC-formed for exact manufacturing tolerances and repeatable high quality. The SB023 attaches to your Mustang with billet aluminum end links and 88-durometer polyurethane bushings, reducing the deflection from the stock rubber bushings. These bushings are molded from 88-durometer, low-deflection, polyurethane, and are internally fluted to keep grease in the bushing. The CNC-machined, billet aluminum sway bar end links eliminate deflection.
BMR Suspension designed the SB023 sway bar for street performance, autocross, and road race applications. The non-adjustable SB023 gives you a 52% increase in rate over the stock bar (depending on year and model). The rate increases gives you improved handling characteristics so you can drive harder through corners with minimal body roll. This allows for more sway bar control, which equals better handling.
Factory S197 Mustang Panhard rods are made from weak U-shaped stamped steel with soft rubber bushings that allow excessive deflection under load. BMR Suspension’s PHR006 Panhard rod is made 1.25-inch, 0.120-inch wall DOM tubing with TIG-welded chrome-moly tube adapters. The PHR006 features BMR’s CNC-machined center adjuster, which is made from 4130 chrome-moly with rolled threads. The PHR006 features greasable, 95-durometer bushings, which add a solid, more responsive feel over the stock rubber bushings. BMR’s bushings are internally fluted, which allows grease to evenly coat the inner sleeve, keeping grease in the bushing under high compression loads. 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 PHR006 to work well for street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The heavy-duty construction eliminates the deflection seen in stamped-steel Panhard rods. Other Panhard rods on the market include rubber bushings that will deflect under heavy loads. The 95-durometer polyurethane bushings of the PHR006 reduce bushing deflection, giving you much-improved, repeatable handling characteristics on the street, starting line, or in aggressive corners. The on-car adjustable design makes the PHR006 great lowered Mustangs. This gives you all the strength and adjustability you need for great handling without huge increases in NVH.
Factory Mustang Panhard rod supports are made from weak U-shaped stamped steel that allows excessive deflection under load. BMR Suspension’s PHR007 Panhard rod support brace is made from boxed tubing for extra strength. The PHR007 adds tons of strength for increased lateral loads seen during cornering situations and hard launches.
BMR Suspension designed the PHR007 to work well for street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The heavy-duty construction eliminates the deflection seen in stamped-steel Panhard rod supports. Other Panhard rod supports on the market will deflect under heavy loads. The heavy-duty construction of the PHR007 eliminates deflection, giving you much-improved, repeatable handling characteristics on the street, starting line, or in aggressive corners. This allows for fine-tuning and bind-free suspension articulation needed for superior handling. This is the perfect Panhard rod for the enthusiast that requires maximum performance from the suspension.
BMR’s bolt-on relocation brackets for S197 Mustangs are the ultimate in strength and adjustability. The stock lower control arm mounting location can give you insufficient lower control arm angle on lowered vehicles. BMR’s control arm relocation brackets allow you to correct the lower control arm angle, correcting the rear suspension geometry and allowing you to add anti-squat for increased traction. Manufactured from heavy-duty 3/16- and 1/4-inch laser cut, CNC-formed steel plate, the CAB005 are designed to bolt in place, making installation simple and easy.
The stock control arm mounting position is fine for stock height vehicles, but once you lower your car, the control arms change and need to be corrected. The CAB005s allow you lower the lower control arms’ rear mounting position by as much as 3 inches, correcting the control arm angles. This also allows you to make instant center changes for race applications. BMR Suspension designed the CAB005 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. It is engineering to bolt on and stand up to extremely high horsepower and torque levels, as well as the hardest drag strip launches without moving on the rearend housing.
These Ford Racing Upper Strut mounts feature a higher durometer mounting pad for increased performance, higher impact loads, and increased durability. Factory Upper Strut Mount failure is a common occurrence on 2005-Current Mustangs, especially when replacing your front suspension with aftermarket pieces. These units are the perfect upgrade for your 2005-2014 Mustang GT and V-6.
BMR Suspension’s HPP001 Level 1 Handling Package is available in black hammertone and red powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is 5-6 hours. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
