UTCA038 - Upper Control Arm, Adjustable, Rod End
Launching harder, reducing wheel hop, and adding cornering consistency to your 2011-2014 Ford Mustang is easy with an upper control arm from BMR Suspension. The stock control arm with soft rubber bushings deflects under load and absorbs power instead of transferring it to the tires. BMR’s rod end, on-car adjustable tubular upper control arm for S197 Mustangs (UTCA038) is manufactured from heavy-duty CNC-machined 1 5/8 inch, 0.250-inch wall threaded steel tube. The telescoping center adjuster is CNC-machined from chrome-moly steel with rolled threads for the ultimate in strength and durability. This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. BMR’s 1-inch rod ends offer high levels of strength and articulation. When the highest levels of performance are required, BMR uses heavy-duty Teflon-lined Viking Performance rod ends.
BMR Suspension designed the UTCA038 to work well in street performance, drag race, and road race applications. The stock control arm flexes under even light 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 UTCA038’s heavy-duty construction eliminates control arm flex, giving you much improved repeatability on the street, starting line, or in the corners. The adjustability allows you to dial in pinion angle for reduced NVH. BMR’s rod ends offers tons of articulation for great handling, while remaining strong enough to stand up to high loads of any performance environment. These are the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast looking for max performance at an affordable price. When performance is a must, rely on BMR Suspension!
BMR Suspension’s UTCA038 on-car adjustable rod end upper control arm is available in red and black hammertone powdercoat for long-lasting good looks. Installation time is about 2-3 hours. Proudly made in the U.S.A.
BMR's UTCA038 Upper Control Arm blows the competition away with superior features, strength, durability and functionality. Where most competitors use ¾-inch diameter adjusters, the BMR control arm has a huge CNC machined 1-1/4-inch telescoping adjuster, which allows on-car adjustability. Don't let the size fool you. We keep this adjuster light by boring out the center. The result is a 34-percent larger adjuster that weighs only 4 ounces more than typical ¾-inch adjusters used by the competition.
Where most available control arms come with a standard ¾-inch rod end, BMR uses a huge 1-inch rod end for the front mount. Standard ¾-inch chromoly rod ends are load rated at 28,000 lbs. while our 1-inch rod end has an overkill rating of 76,000 lbs.! We also use bearing spacers machined from bulletproof 7075 aircraft spec aluminum to keep overall weight down without compromising strength.
