Panhard Bar Adjustments

I recently lowered my 09 GT and installed the rear panhard bar. I tried my best to get the rear end centered but I'm still a little off. The panhard bar is maxed out on the threads for one side. I'd like to know if there is any quick fix and to know exactly where to take my measurements from. I'm scared to leave it up to the technician that will do the alignment.

Re: Panhard Bar Adjustments

This is how you do it.

Tape a string to the top of the wheel well and tie a nut/bolt to it so it hangs strate down the middle of your wheel well.

Measure from the center of your wheel out to the string for both the left and right rear wheels.

Once you have those measurements you can start to adjust the panhard bar. Leave the strings in place and keep measuring both sides as you adjust the bar. Its best to have some friends to help with the measuring as you adjust it.

Also do you have a "On car adjustable one"?

What does an 'on car adjustable one' look like? Mine has a threaded link on both ends. I can see the differential moving when I turn the panhard bar while it is installed.

Re: Panhard Bar Adjustments

you want the car on jack stands but the axle on stands so the weight of the car is on the rear end to compress it for a ride height stance when you adjust the panhard~ or as close as you can get.

The best way would probably be 2 stands, one on either side of the differential? That keeps it at ride height and even.

Re: Panhard Bar Adjustments

yea you can do that, be SURE to put something in front of the front wheels so it cant roll forward as well. Put them out a bit, not right next to the differential so it wont have as much roll if you push up on one side or the other. You could also drive up on ramps i guess if they are tall enough.
