BMR Differential Lockout Bushings
Increase rear end stability while reducing wheel hop with BMR's 2015-2017 Mustang differential lockout bushing kit! The factory rubber differential bushings have multiple air pockets that leave large voids. This is great for absorbing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), but it leaves much to be desired in the performance department. BMR has designed this kit to be a non-permanent modification. This kit installs over the factory bushings, so NVH is almost unchanged.
BMR constructs this lockout kit using 6061-T6 billet aluminum for strength and durability. Each plate is CNC machined for an exact fit. Once installed, the lockout plates fill the void between the bolt and bushing cup resulting in reduced wheel hop and almost no differential movement. This leads to better traction and an overall better driving experience in your S550. BMR proudly makes this kit here in the USA for quality and reliability you can trust!
Not too hard to install. Instructions from BMR were lacking horribly. Youtube videos helped me a lot in this install, but its a video for the Steeda combo set, same install though. That really helps here. After install I noticed 99% wheel hop gone and could actually do burn outs as I pleased. I am BEYOND happy, you have no idea - but come to find out that after driving 15+ minutes the diff warms up the stock rubber and allows the diff to actually move back and forward ever so slightly and because of BMR's design the aluminum washer is able to move out of the hole and fall down slightly to rub metal vs metal making a little noise but worse yet you see little metal chipping after every ride now from the metal around the hole and the washer rubbing, this wouldn't happen with a better design - For example Steeda's design. Hey, for $50 I learned the diff is a great place to fix wheel hop and I learned that I should have gone with Steeda.
