UTCA033 - Upper Control Arm, DOM, On-car Adj, Spherical Bearing
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 spherical, on-car adjustable tubular control arm for S197 Mustangs (UTCA033) is manufactured from heavy-duty 1 5/8 inch, 0.120-inch wall DOM steel tubing. The center adjuster is CNC-machined from chrome-moly steel with rolled threads for the ultimate in strength and durability. The arms feature TIG-welded chrome-moly tube adapters. This design gives you a strong control arm that greatly improves performance. Spherical bearings offer the highest levels of strength and articulation. When the highest levels of performance are required, BMR uses heavy-duty Teflon-lines Viking Performance spherical bearings.BMR Suspension designed the UTCA033 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 UTCA033’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 increased traction with reduced NVH. BMR’s spherical bearing offers tons of articulation for great handling, whiles 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 UTCA033 on-car adjustable spherical 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 UTCA033 Upper Control Arm blows the competition away with superior features, strength, durability and functionality. Where most competitors use 3/4" diameter adjusters, the BMR control arm has a huge CNC machined 1-1/8" double adjuster which allows on-car adjustability. Don't let the size fool you though, we keep this adjuster light by boring out the center. The result is a 34% larger adjuster that weighs only 4 ounces more than typical 3/4" adjusters used by the competition. Where most available control arms come with a standard 3/4" rod end, BMR uses a a huge 1" spherical bearing for the front mount, housed inside a CNC machined cup. Standard 3/4" chrome moly rod ends are load rated at 28,000 lbs. while our 1" spherical bearing has an overkill rating of 90,000 lbs.! We also use bearing spacers machined from bulletproof 7075 aircraft spec aluminum to keep overall weight down without compromising strength.
