Panhard bar?

I was wondering if it was necessary to install a new one of lowering my mustang? And if I didn't what would happen... I bought the Eibach sport line springs and I have control arms

Any help would be appreciated

You will be fine without it unless you are super picky about the rear being a tad off center. The only people that will notice will be you and people are looking for it.

I lowered mine with pro-kits and needed a panhard. It was off centered and noticeable imo.

It won't hurt the vehicle at all to drive on it and track runs?

Re: Panhard bar?

I haven't gotten it yet, they have a good explanation on steeda's website on their findings between the watt link and the pan handle. I am going to go with the watt link as soon as i can afford to drop that kind of cash

Like someone else said,you will be fine. Its just annoying to see your rear a bit off.

Yeah, was actually looking at that before. It's all a bunch of words to me though lol. Would love to hear from someone who's had both to see if it's that much of a difference and really worth the price.

Watts link isn't what you want for a DD that you like to take turns though. It prevents body roll.

And bmr kit is a lot less.

With over an inch drop, ur rear axle will shift to one side... which will make one of ur rear wheels stick out more than the other

Re: Panhard bar?

Doesn't that knacker the thrust angle and make it handle badly?

It doesn't really affect anything like you would think. Saying the axle is off center is misleading, it's easier to think of the body being off center if that helps. The drivetrain is straight, it's just the relation to everything else that's out of wack.

Re: Panhard bar?

if you drop it enough to tell you should get one, an inch drop really isnt very noticeable. If you just want handling to get better then you dont have to drop it as much, the spring rate matters there a good bit vs just looks.

I'm doing a 2 inch drop in the rear and I know it would bother me if it didn't look right... Figured I'll just do it right the first time around

I am running these same springs and without a panhard you can tell it's slightly off. Your left wheel is further out then the right, its nots drastic and not that noticeable without a panhard bar but more centered with one.
