Default adjustable panhard bar on lwered stang

hi peeps.
just noticed on my lowered gt that the rear axle is not sitting dead center.
the rear tires are not even with the rear wings.

cheers rudi

I would look at a Whiteline Adjustable Panhard Bar they are rock solid. Hopefully you can get those over in the UK that I am not sure of.

I would also check your camber on the front. You may have to get camber bolts to center it back out.

You don't need adjustable for a little drop unless you have wide tires, then it will be noticeable. Such as 305's which might rub if not centered.

You should also get a Bump Steer (Steada $167) and Cam Bolts ($24) because you lowered your front now the geometry is off on the tire (Cam bolts will flatten out the tire) and Bump Steer will correct the angle of the tie rods.

And a cooler to keep your Lutfisk and Fin Fvodka chilled.
A sword is always loaded.

Wrong. I have 245's and it was instantly noticeable that the center was off on a 1" drop.

And he said he only lowered the rear. Bumpsteer and cam bolts are irrelevant...

By the blood of ABBA, do not deny your Danish Overlords.

Chill R.H., most anglo Americans call the Netherlands - Holland.
I believe that would be similar to calling America - California.

Do you have to pay a V.A.T. tax on orders plus an import penalty for foreign parts?
Better get the right part the first time.

White-line parts can be tricky with other parts - the WATTS link is $899 for me, probable $10,899.39 for you. but do you know not only is it the best anti sway for the rear end but it will not work with 99% of all the rear sway bars. White-line rear sway bar goes along the under side of the differential while all others go behind the differential.

Sometimes it pays to go with similar sets, like all BMR - LCA, UCA with lowering brackets BMR adjustable Pannhard bar. Eirbach springs, shocks and struts. Some keep their stock shocks and struts then lower with springs and don't get a proper effect.

I'm truly sorry to hear about ABBA breaking-up do you by any chance have the phone numbers for Agnetha or Anni-Frid? I might have a rebound chance.
Later

Noticeable only if you tell someone to notice it, is it ******* off to one side?
Yes Cam Bolts not. Bump Steers will still reduce road feedback to the steering wheel.
but in a foreign market his prices are so much higher.
235's were the usual tire for 05-09's.

How did a Red Mustang GT get in Sweden anyway? Isn't there a 1762 Royal ordinance against the import of Mustangs. Oh! that's Spanish horses - never mind.

to other questions, yes you can install it on ramps, it even keeps the axle loaded so when you go to adjust it itll be right.

goodluck with install

Indeed. Would be a super easy job on ramps.

easy enough job with ramps, while you are at it put on non adjustable lower control arms. I did just the rear drop on my 08 GT with roush springs, LCA's and adj. panhard bar. my car was out about 1/2 inch, did all at the same time, drove around and had to adjust one more time. 3 years later it still centered, plus no more wheel hop, which is why I did it the first place. make sure you have some Loctite for the bolts and your panhard is adjustable on the car like the one pictured.

I lowered the rear only and had to re-center the body 1/2" to the driver
side, it leveled my pony out and now has better grip w/ the relocation
brackets. Better cornering as well.

got the adj pb on today...
i used the inner wheel arch to take measurements.
doing it that way seems more logical than using the outer wing..wow easy to fit..took about 2 hours to get it exactly inline.
and what a difference to the way the car handles now..
anyone that has a lowered stang u really need to do this mod if you want your car to look good and drive way better.

ok
right guys to get the rear axle perfectly inline is not so easy..u adjust it then move it and check it and find it's no longer centre..so what you need to do is move that nut just a quater turn and check it then move it...say one side is 6mm more in than the other side?
a quater turn is all is needed..
so adjust then move the car before checking it..has taken me about 6 hours work to align it mm perfect..
