    BMR-SM760 Rear Upper Shock Mounts: Design and Testing Completed!

    Over the past few years we have not been in a rush to release shock mounts simply because the stock mounts work great and are fine for most. We have seen offerings that are a replica of the factory offering, except stronger. While strength is great - the factory mounts work as intended. When you put damaging shock loads into the system from bottoming out your shock, they fail as they should instead of ripping your inside wheel wells apart.

    Due to OE stock mounts failing because of improper shock travel in many systems out there, BMR decided to work up a shock mount kit that improves bump travel availability. So not only do you eliminate the rubber on the stock system, but you also gain shock travel. For most lowered cars out there, your rear shocks will have the STOCK SHOCK TRAVEL when you use these new BMR-SM760 Mounts.

    This industry first design features an FK Bearing Co. Teflon Lined Rod-End that threads on to your stock, Ford Performance or Viking Shock. To secure it, you place the BMR Stainless Steel bump stop shoulder on to your shock, thread your jam nut down and then the rod-end. (pictures below)

    We will also be providing O-Rings with the kit to eliminate NVH increase and also help seal the bearing.

    PRICING and ETA will be updated in this thread soon. We expect to start taking orders and shipping early Q1 of 2019.

    Thanks for all of you who support BMR and enable us to continue providing new and innovative offerings for your S550 Mustangs!

    Loving that this frees up the shock to articulate about the bolt axis, and only uses the spherical to deal with the squat angle of the LCA as it goes through its travel. Should be a nice ride improvement for the high frequency highway 'bounce'. Also nice and easy to torque!

    Will these work with Magneride equipped cars (other rear upper Shock Mounts from other aftermarket manufacturers don’t)

    I know it's already finalized but what about the boots? Maybe add a small lip for the boots to click into?

    How do you adjust the firmness of your shocks?

    I do not think this mount is compatible with the KONI style adjuster.

    Work being done/other variants in the works for Koni-style adjustable shocks as well. Don't worry, Kelly has not forgotten about you.

    Ready for these Kelly @BMR Tech. Finished up the 762 install as mentioned in that post. Let us know when we can preorder these. I have another brand in place that I've been happy with but I really like the shock travel ability these have to offer. Looking forward to seeing how these work on the track as well.

    Will these work with the Steeda Non-adjustable shocks? Really like the look of these.

    Yes I believe Kelly will have both M10x1.5 and M10x1.0 available in this design.
