From their website:
When BMR Suspension began back in 1998, it was difficult for performance automotive enthusiasts to find suspension products that had an innovative design and quality construction at an affordable price. BMR turned this market void into a business philosophy, and has been serving our customer's needs ever since. Currently offering chassis, suspension, and drivetrain products for 22 different vehicles, BMR is the leading suspension manufacturer in many of the market segments that it serves.

Whether you are interested in street performance, hardcore drag racing, or handling applications, BMR Suspension has the products that you need. Proudly made in the U.S.A. in a manufacturing facility near Tampa, Florida, American workers cut, bend, notch, drill, and mill components from American-made DOM and chrome-moly steel. Then, every product is fixture-welded to maintain consistent quality. Workers bead-blast parts and then powdercoat them using BMR's in-house powdercoating line. Finished parts are then assembled and packaged in the assembly department. By manufacturing every product in house, BMR can control the quality at every stage of the manufacturing process.

Visit the BMR website for more info.
