Thumbs up BMR's "CB005" S550 IRS Cradle Bushing Lockout Kit - PICS & INFO!

So, due to the overwhelming emails, messages and calls about this kit - I decided to make this thread to show you guys what our CB005 Kit is.

When we first got out S550 Mustangs and started ripping it apart, I knew that a large portion of the market would want a "plug and play" kit for the rear IRS cradle on these cars. So the team and I got to work!

Fast forward to now, and we have tested not only 4 different unique designs of this kit, but also the competitors product as well.

What we have come up with, is a kit that focuses on practically "locking" the cradle out. This kit reduces fore, aft and vertical movement of the cradle SUBSTANTIALLY, just about as good as it will get without replacing the bushings. It also does a great job at centering the cradle, AND it adds a nice convenient jacking point out back.

First, here is a shot of the prototype kit we have been testing, and finalized our design with. *Production has started.



The Red Braces replace the OEM Cradle Plates. They center the cradle, and add support to the lower portion of the sleeve that is locked out atop the bushing on the chassis side. These also add a jacking point.



Between the Brace and the bushing housing, we add a thick HD Steel washer to lock the vertical movement of the front cradle mounts out.






For the rear bushings, in OEM form they tend to want to move substantially (vertically) and causing a rocking motion for the cradle. In other words, if this is not addressed, the cradle "bounces" around like CRAZY under WOT acceleration and corner entrance/exit. This vertical lock-out washer basically accomplishes the same thing that the competitors bolt-together 2-piece wedges do. Props to their design, we truly like it. We just wanted to make our product entirely different, and make it as easy as just remove the bolt, put in place, and re-install the bolt.

As you can see, the thick steel plate forms down and over/around the OEM Washer flange and applies pressure to the OEM steel sleeves.

Since the we lock the top out with the aluminum top hats - this piece locks the bottom out.



We are on pace to start taking orders and shipping these kits out in about 2-3 weeks. Pricing is set to be at $159.95 for the kit.

THAT is a value that cannot be duplicated based on the many features that this kit provides.
Thanks M6G!

PS - Like stated above, this is the raw prototype test kit we have been using. PRODUCTION PIECES WILL BE FINISHED AND BE OF MUCH NICER APPEARANCE AND QUALITY.

***PRODUCTION VERSION IN PIC BELOW

This one is going to fly off the shelves. For anyone who doesn't want to pull the rear end out this looks like cake to install.

I'll be one of the first to order this! It looks awesome and I love that you tested competitor designs as well

So what real world benefits have you guys observed with this kit? Also a lot of us are worried about increased NVH which I know you said would be minimal with this kit. What increases did you notice?

Hey BMR, will there be a no NVH solution for the diff to go with this?

Also, do either the BMR Vertical Links or the BMR Toe Rods increase NVH?

Yes, we do have a diff kit coming soon. The NVH is in between the Poly and ALuminum Diff Bushings. The Poly is the way to go on the diff mounts, IMO.

The TR005 Toe Rods do not increase NVH at all.

The TCA045 Vert Links can increase NVH occasionally, as they have bearings that rotate. For those who hear the occasional "click" - it's nothing an O-Ring cannot fix. Well over 100 of them have been installed, and I have not gotten one response of NVH increase. We also have a Delrin/Bearing Vertical Link coming...and it will not increase NVH at all.

For those requesting installed pics, this is about all I have right now.






Some early shots from October of 2014.

will be ordering as soon as they are available!

Also a question, will the steeda centering subframe alignment kit work with this? at least use 2 of them on the rear mounts since the front mounts will have the brace?

Will parts such as steeda rear toe links, irs subframe bushings, vertical links, subframe braces still work with this kit?
