Launching harder, reducing wheel hop, and adding cornering consistency to your S197 Ford Mustang is easy with adjustable lower control arms from BMR Suspension. Stock stamped steel control arms with soft rubber bushings deflect under load and absorb power instead of transferring it to the tires. BMR’s polyurethane, on-car adjustable tubular poly/rod end control arms for S197s (TCA021) are manufactured from heavy-duty 1¼-inch DOM steel tubing. This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. On one side, greasable, 95-durometer bushings 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 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. On the other, a heavy-duty Teflon-lines rod end from Viking Performance solidly mounts the arm, cutting the amount of bushing deflection in half. The center-mounted adjuster uses both left and right hand threads, making adjustments simple, with just basic hand tools. The TCA021 uses TIG-welded chromolly tube adapters for the ultimate in strength.
BMR Suspension designed the TCA021 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The stock control arms flex under 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 TCA021’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 at an affordable price, while maintaining acceptable NVH levels and ride quality. When performance is a must, rely on BMR Suspension!
BMR Suspension’s TCA021 on-car-adjustable polyurethane lower control arms are available in red and black hammertone powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is about 1-2 hours. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
*To retain the factory geometry, ensure the offset end of the LCA is installed on the axle side, with the offset portion of the bushing facing towards the rear differential.
