BMR's front upper and lower...
BMR's front upper and lower A-arms are constructed out of DOM steel tubing and are completely MIG welded. Each lower arm features low-deflection polyurethane bushings, integrated bump stops, and come with new ball joints. For the front 1-inch lowering springs, BMR uses a linear 525 lb-in rate.
The Level 2 suspension package...
The Level 2 suspension package comes with non-adjustable nitrogen filled Bilstein monotube shocks. Inside, these gems feature rising-rate valving that responds quickly to the road surface and provides a smooth, comfortable ride. BMR also offers single- and double-adjustable shocks as an optional upgrade.
To decrease body roll, the...
To decrease body roll, the 11/4-inch front sway bars are constructed out of cold formed steel. This helps to resist fatigue over time and maintain their shape better. According to BMR, these are four times (400%) more rigid versus the stock 7/8-inch sway bars.
The upper arms feature billet...
The upper arms feature billet cross-shafts and provide additional header clearance over their factory counterparts. Combined with the lower A-arms, you can expect a total weight savings of 10 pounds per side.
All packages include new mounting...
All packages include new mounting bushings with endlink kits, and you can also opt for their shade of Black Hammertone should you want something other than red.
Here's what you can expect...
Here's what you can expect for the rear suspension. Just like the front portion, each package includes all the necessary components and hardware for a quick and easy installation.
For the rear upper control...
For the rear upper control arms, we decided to upgrade to the adjustable units. Make note that there is a $65 upcharge (PN UTCA005), but they allow for easy pinion angle adjustments. All you have to do is back off the jam nuts and turn the adjuster, you don't even have to remove them from the chassis.
The rear lower control arms...
The rear lower control arms are bulletproof with their heavy-duty rectangular steel tubing; these size in at 11/2x3-inch. Unlike the factory arms that can flex under loads during performance exercises; these will resist flex and help make the chassis much more predictable. We also upgraded to the heavy-duty spherical bearings for $167 (BCA006); these are geared more for the track, while the polyurethane bushings are intended more for the street crowd.
For added reinforcement, the...
For added reinforcement, the control arm mount braces secure the upper and lower control arms together.
From this angle, you get a...
From this angle, you get a better idea of just how the control arm mount braces attach.
The rear 1-inch diameter sway...
The rear 1-inch diameter sway bar simply mounts onto the lower control arms with the supplied Grade 8 hardware.
There you have it, a complete...
There you have it, a complete off-the-shelf suspension package that only requires a minimal amount of sweat equity to install. From out back, there's no denying that this Chevelle has been outfitted with all BMR equipment.
