Don't need an alignment. However, a plumb-bob and a ruler will help you make sure you are centered in the rear. As far as Loctite, no idea. I didn't used in on my J&M adjustable. Had it on for about 6 months torqued down, hasn't moved.

Loosen the bolt above it and it should drop right out. No need for an alignment afterwards, just center it yourself as mentioned and you're good.

These guys are right^^^ No need for an alignment when adjusting the panhard bar. No need for loctite either. Just make sure the bolts are snugged up firmly!

I was watching bmr installation video and others never mention about lossening the brace bar mount. Anyways I finally got it out ealier by wacking it. Its weird the passenger side doesnt drop rather tight compared to the driver side when you take the bolt out. I had trouble putting it in and out, seems like the chassis frame mount gap is too narrow and had to bang it in.

I used loctite on mine....just an added precaution that the jam nuts won't back off.

You shouldn't be having, or noticing any pulling to either side. Make sure that you are driving down a completely level road.

If you don't loosen it, the bolt for the PHB brace is still squeezing that bracket together a little, which is making it seem like the gap is too narrow. The axle-side bracket only has the PHB bolt, so when that's out there aren't any other fasteners squeezing that bracket together.

Did you measure your axle centering with the car weight fully on all four wheels? The LCAs are not quite parallel, so any axle offset at least theoretically affects your axle's thrust angle and will cause you to have to steer it a tiny bit to stay straight. If this is the case, and you did not touch any other rear suspension fasteners or components, your axle is probably a little too far to the right.
