Panhard Bar Install Question

I recently purchased a panhard bar from American Muscle for my 07 Mustang GT. Every install video I have seen the cars are on lifts. My question is can I roll my back wheel up a set of ramps so I can get underneath or does the rear suspension need to uncompressed when changing? Just don't want to pop it out while suspension is under load and then not be able to get the new one in. Thanks.

It is not under any forces that might make this difficult. You are good to go!

I'd like to piggy back this..
While yes, it's a breeze to pull out when lifted.
How does that go for adjustment.
I would IMAGINE, having on the ground is better for getting proper measurements to center.
But I also think it would be a B*tch to move a fully loaded rear.

Please educate me.

I'm gonna guess it's if you get an adjustable panhard bar. How do you adjust the factory one when there is no adjustment on the bar?

Just me but I followed the directions. I had similar questions years ago and Kelly yes BMR Kelly pick up the phone at BMR when I called and walked me into the section for install. I downloaded the instructions so here they are. I hope this helps you and if you have a different brand no big deal as the directions are only different based off where the adjustment nut is.


That's the difference between "On Car Adjustment" and other design's.

The bar can be installed with either the suspension loaded or unloaded, it doesn't make a difference. The bar MUST be adjusted with the suspension loaded or you won't be able to accurately see how much you need to adjust the bar.

Like the rest of the people here. I've installed one as well. Really simple job. Jack up the rear end on the dif (put some block of wood between jack and dif) then jack stands on the side frame in front if rear tires. Drop the jack. 2 18m bolts and then you're good to go. Try greasing the stock bushings up a bit to help it slide out easier. Lube up the new bushings, align bar, install 2 bolts back into place and remember to torque them to spec (129 ft lbs) drop the car. Now to align the bar properly its best if you have a distance that it can be rolled or driven for. Make changes. Drive/roll car 5-10 feet then see how it is. Keep making changes until alignment is spot on. Best of luck!!!! ��

Thanks for all the replies. The bar went on very easily. A little grease and aligning and she was done. I did not get the adjustable bar but I can tell the difference. Especially on quick take-offs when the tires spin. Really smooth and no chattering. Now its time to work on getting the upper and lower control arms swapped out.

So from your statements I would guess you are like the rest of us, when it comes to spirited driving. IMO I have used or installed a lot of LCA's
and this is just my opinion.


BMR: A little NVH Box Poly but you can thrash them.
UPR: Very civil but with a softer bushing one of the best for street for the price BASE MODEL.
Steeda:A little over priced but a great part.


I listed these for the LCA because I have yet to Break any of them. I will tell you this I hit a pot hole that could have ate VW Bug at 70MPH and the BMR LCA's did not break. I could not avoid the pot hole at the time as I was on the HWY. If they would have been the factory ones, they would have folded. The ones listed above are 10X's better that the OEM LCA's.
