Installing Panhard Bar

Looks like my driver side wheel is slightly shifted outward after lowering my car. Im looking into an adjustable panhard bar, probably bmr.

My question is, does the car need to be jacked up to remove and install the new panhard bar? Or can this be done with the car on the floor? The way my carport is, I have a steep slope on one end...I was able to install the Roush chin no problem without jacking it up. Can I do the same for the panhard?

Yea you can put in the Panhard bar on the ground. That's how I did mine.

Ok, Ive seen some say that the suspension cant be under load when installing, but figured this wasnt the case in this situation.

As long as the axle is centered when you put it on you will be good

Well it's currently sitting about 3/16'' to the driver side, but I was told adjustments are made after its installed and set on the ground.

I ordered a Scott Drake bar from Summit Racing on the 15th but haven't gotten any shipping notification yet, just says, "processing". I ordered LCA brackets same day from LMR and they were at the door in 4 days.

My ph was adjusted when I did the alignment (which I highly recommend). I was about the same as you, 3/4" towards the driver side.

Just found out that Scott Drake doesn't make a pan hard rod for 11-14 Stangs. Just cancelled with Summit.

It can be done on the ground because it's the body that's being adjusted, not the suspension.

would you guys say a PH bar is a necessity when lowering the car? Or can install a lowering kit and buy an aftermarket PH bar when ready?

If you want your rear axle to be kicked out to one side some while driving, skip the PH bar. As for ke, whenever I have the money, I will get a PH bar with springs.

PHB needs to be done same time, otherwise your axle will be further to one side than the other.

PHB is like the third cheapest mod you can do at $120. Other than maybe camber bolts and a shift knob. Maybe a shift bracket too. Well also emblems.

Ok maybe the fifth cheapest lol
