When you launch the latest Mustang, the Independent Rear Suspensionâ€™s cradle actually moves on its soft rubber bushings. It moves a lot. And that can contribute to wheel hop and lost traction. To mitigate this problem, BMR Suspension developed its S550 IRS Cradle Lockout Kit (PN CB005; $159.95). This bolt-on system augments the existing IRS cradle bushings, which reduces the cradle movement without introducing additional noise, vibration, and harshness.
â€œWe developed this kit to give enthusiasts a way to greatly reduce wheel hop and bushing deflection without having to replace the stock bushings and adding loads of unwanted NVH,â€ Pete Epple, Marketing Tech at BMR Suspension, explained when the kit was released.
Now, in the companyâ€™s latest video, Pete and BMRâ€™s Ford Mustang Suspension Specialist Kelly Aiken detail the systemâ€™s benefits and show dramatic before and after footageâ€¦
Itâ€™s pretty clear this kit reduces the cradle movement, so you might want to know more about it. Regular readers of the SVTP Front Page got a first look at the BMR S550 IRS Cradle Lockout Kit and how it installs. So, if you want to see how this system goes on, be sure toÂ read our story.
