Damn that sucks. I just want to do lots of things at the same time to avoid tearing my car apart every week. I rather just dedicate a weekend every few months or something than every weekend ya know. When I get my a arms, coil over and struts I will do that long with the K member. Trans with the stall. And manifold, etc. with TB, MAF, EGR, Blower, PP, Crank Pulley, Injectors, FP and AFPR <--- That might take more than a weekend though

That is dirt cheap! Has it been installed? Make sure the bar or mounts have not been bent if it is used. I have seen what they can look like when dunces put a jack under them.

No the subframes were never even opened and taken out of the box until I asked the guy if they were coated or not lol And the panhard bar is also brand new and never installed. I am meeting up with the guy this Sunday to pick them up.

I think I should be able to do everything in about 3-4 days at max. The thing is... when I work on cars. I WORK. I dont sit around take a break every 10 mintues, etc lol If I do it they will be 14-15 hour days!

usually pull the all nighters also, i completely stripped this car, repainted everything except the exterior, usually get home round 6 work on car till midnight or 1 then go to work at 7 am do it all over again 4 nights/week, weekends are reserved for the better half, its been a long time in the works, pretty fun to drive though, not sure if i want to take it to the next level with that HP turbo or not though, thinking paxton and 8" crank pulley 10-12lbs, or 125-150 shot, be all i need with this stock block,,,, dont really want to shell the cash out for a new dart, machining, turbo, and fuel system though,,,,

ORIGINAL: Twister

It consists of a beam that bolts to the differential/rear axle, runs parallel to the driveshaft, and pivots at a point near the transmission output shaft. It prevents pinion angle changes (axle wide-up). When you install a torque arm in combination with a panhard bar or a watts link, they take over both functions of the Mustang's upper control arms (side-to-side axle location and prevention of pinion angle changes). Both of the stock upper control arms can be removed and discarded. Doing that gives you a 3-link rear. It exhibits almost no bind and performs much better than the stock system during extreme cornering, acceleration, and braking.

What your describing sounds more like what I have seen on the Chevy Rears, not how the MM PH Rod interfaces witht the Ford 5.0 Mustang.
Maybe I misunderstood.

I installed my MM panhard rod just aft of the dif.
Nothing runs up the length of the driveshaft.

Just curious if were talking about 2 different things.
