Rattle after lowering kit

I lowered my 09 GT, and it now has a rattle in the right rear. I crawled under it and had someone bounce it, found the rattle is the adjustable pan hard bar I installed. Is there a way to make it stop rattling or another pan-hard that doesn't rattle?

I had the same issue. Pan hard adjustment nuts were not tight. Put some loc-tite on the threads of the adjusment screw and retighten the nuts. What bar are you using?

+1

I had one of my adjustable panhard bar's jam nuts loosen and it started rattling. A lil loctite and retightening. No issues since.

I tried retightening and using loc-tite, didn't help at all. As soon as I backed down the drive way it was rattling the same. It seems to me it may be coming from where it bolts up on the right side.

Is the panhard bar support brace tight on the passengers side? I would just go over all the nuts & bolts to make sure they're tight. Eliminate all other possiblities before you send it back. What bar are you using?

I've actually had it for a while now, so I'm not sure which brand. I know it's an on car adjustable. Both nuts are tight and the bolts on each end are tight. I know when someone pushes down on the right fender making the car jounce, I can hold the pan hard bar and it immediately stops the rattle.

I was just checking out some other ones. I think I like the ones like the BMR one. The adjuster looks a lot easier to access and it has bushings. I'm pretty sure that'd be much more quiet.

Is it a bar or a piece of channel? It could be cracked where you can't see. Sounds like a new one in your future.

I had an adjustable bar in my black car that had Heim joints at each end. It did not rattle, but it did transmit every little sound into the car.

That's very true, forgot about the Heim joints.

I ended up ordering a BMR pan hard with polyurethane bushings. My previous one had Hiem joints and that was exactly what was rattling.
