When you launch the latest Mustang, the Independent Rear Suspension’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.

S550 IRS Cradle Lockout Kit (PN CB005; $159.95) includes billet-aluminum upper bushing lockout rings, lower bushing support washers, stainless steel lower bushing support plates, and robust cradle braces.

“We 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,” Pete Epple, Marketing Tech at BMR Suspension, explained when the kit was released.

Now, in the company’s latest video, Pete and BMR’s Ford Mustang Suspension Specialist Kelly Aiken detail the system’s benefits and show dramatic before and after footage…

It’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 to read our story.

Not only do the kit’s included braces center the cradle and reduce its movement, but they also provide an extra jacking point at the rear of the car.
