EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEAK - BMR ADJ. Conrol Arms's!!!

That's right everyone - here is the first sneak peak of an INSTALLED set of BMR's ALL NEW, NOT YET RELEASED Adjustable Control Arms. Quickly after installing these on a bunch of cars in the shop we discovered how essential they were and tossed a set on our shop car, which we found did not work. After quickly getting on the phone with BMR to discuss the options, these bad boys were created!!



PM for details and pre-order info

The non adjustable set works amazing and we have them installed on about 10 cars. The non adjustable pieces are shorter than the factory, which for our specific setup and I am sure others, would not allow for enough camber adjustment.

LOL, right. Did someone just put a BMR sticker there for kicks, or are they really BMR coilovers?

They look like BC Racing with a BMR sticker. I could be wrong though.

That's what I was thinking too, but since the OP did not answer the question, it makes me think that maybe BMR is developing a set of coilovers too, and the OP isn't allowed to say anything at the moment.

Yes, I remember reading a post on here somewhere hinting that BMR is indeed developing their own Coilovers. You are probably seeing those "test" pieces.

What is the benefit to an adjustable length rear lower control arm? I don't see how chopping a perfectly good LCA in the middle and putting in a twist point would be an advantage.

Torq any idea is these control arms make adjusting the compression on the Kwv3 a bit easier because the stock arms and the Spohn arms we use make it a total pain in the ass.

This is needed to get proper camber for road course or autox applications as the stock replacement are shorter than stock and bring camber back to stock specs for lowered vehicles. We can assure you everything here is strong enough to take any abuse people will put to them.

BMR made their control arms to facilitate the adjustments on those particular shocks.

We did design a lower "window" into the control arm in an attempt to make adjusting the KW's easier but it is still a PIA. Ideally it needs material removed from the top of the control arm to provide accessability to the shock adjuster but doing so would have weakened the design of our arm...
