Talking A sneak peak at our newly designed BMR rear lower control arms!

The is our newly designed BMR non-adjustable lower control that will replace our current version and will take over as part number TCA028. These non-adjustable lower control arms will work with the 2010 to current Camaros and can be used with the earlier style rear sway bars or the FE4 style rear sway bars. Our current BMR adjustable lower control arms (TCA029) will see the same changes and keep the TCA029 part number. We are thinking that this change in design for our TCA028 and TCA029 BMR lower control arms will become active within the next 3-4 weeks. If you guys have any question or inquiries let me know.

Now for the good stuff, here is some pictures of the new style lower control arm.

So on lowered car the adjustable could get camber back to 0 or a hair positive for drag racing launches?

The "Xtreme" anti-roll bar is more geared towards drag racing vs. the FE4 suspension. If you are more serious about drag racing, you'd probably be better off with the Xtreme.

They will fit 17's, but not 15's. Need the BMR Drag Race Conversion for that.

These will fit both styles of suspensions.

Is your car lowered at all? Actually our non-adjustable lower control arms (TCA028) are a little shorter than the factory lower control arms so if you are lowered a little and looking to get to 0 camber or maybe even a little positive you could do it with our more affordable non-adjustable lower control arms (TCA028).

Blazzin1 is definitely a good guy for us and we appreciate him choosing BMR for his suspension and chassis needs!

What parts did you have issues getting the bolts through?

All of our plates are CNC lasered so there shouldn't be any issues with bolt fitment. The only time we ever have had a bolt fitment issue with that kit is with the upper coil-over mount. Sometimes the welder will take it off the jig too soon and the sleeves that the bolts run through will tweak just a hair making it a little bit of a pain to get the bolt in. If you have any problems with any of our stuff all you have to do is give us a call and we would be more than happy to help you out. It is hard for us to fix an issue if we don't even know that a issue exist.
