Panhard bar

So I bought what I hope to be a full Maximum Motorsports pan hard bar for really cheap. The guy totaled his car and was parting things out. Needless to say he never installed it and it's brand new. I took pictures of every thing he had for it. But am I missing any thing?Click image for larger version

Panhard bar

I believe that is all of it. I would have to go back and look at pics of when I put in my Panhard Bar. But from what I remember during install that looks like all of it.

They also have instructions on their site if you want to take a look.

I was about to ask that lol but it doesn't look hard to install. Does this require any drilling though?

Yes it does. You have to drill through the frame and the parts that mount to the frame (U parts at the ends), I'd recommend a heavy duty drill and some muscle, the frame is easy but the part on the chassis mount is a *****.

Another question I have for Soccer is, will this even work since I'm so low now or is it going to bind? I know the bar is adjustable but not sure by how much.

It will work. The bar is adjustable by screwing in and out, so it will work with pretty much all set ups.

It helps if you have a helper, because you have to hold the brace while you mark and drill it.

So I've been doing a bit of digging into more on what else I can do in conjunction with the rear suspension with the installation of the panhard bar. It seems a few other people on different forums have removed the driver side Upper control arm and have either left the stock one until its gets weaker and then replacing it with some other brands of upper control arms and a few have highly recommended the TRZ uca with a spherical housing bushing. Basically it reduces the compression and then tension on both which creates the binding issues and makes it more uniform. So with the panhard bar installed and one upper control arm removed it creates like a poor mans 3-link so it seems.

Any one heard of this being done?

Yea I've seen that done before. You will need to reinforce the torque box of the one you keep though. I highly recommend just doing it right and getting a Torque Arm to convert to a 3 link.

Trying to go that route this winter before warm weather hits again. Along with a few other things and possibly just getting the whole suspension done with honestly.

It all makes a huge difference. After i was finished with the Subframe Connectors, LCAs, Panhard Bar, and Torque Arm my rear end was so much more in control. I could hit the gas much more in corners and jerk the wheel a lot harder without the rear end wanting to step out. Actually the car was more on the understeer side. Even in the slalom i could jerk the wheel and not have the back end step out.

Do You have 2.5" diameter exhaust with the panhard bar in place?

I have a stock catback (Different mufflers welded in, but stock piping). I have heard that with some aftermarket catbacks there can be clearance issues with the chassis brace. Mine was pretty damn close already.

Okay so I'm at the part that you have to drill into the frame. The part that's confusing me is that you only drill on the out side of the frame? At least that's what MM has in the instructions and I have to say their instructions are terrible.....

I'm Half tempted to drill through the whole frame and bolt it straight through. That way its securely bolted all the way through and not just on the out side half of the frame.

You only drill through the outside part because that is where you install the 2 silver inserts with the 2 prongs on each. Those go into those holes and then you put the chassis brace on the outside of it and install the nuts through the brace and through the opposite ends of the prongs with the openings. Essentially what that is, is making the frame more sturdy where it mounts. And it has a threading effect through the inserts.

Not sure how I dont understand this one still. Because the way im envisioning it is that there is no way you get a nut into the frame.
