panhard bar

I've recently lowered my 2014 mustang with bc coilovers, I'm told I need an adjustable panhard bar. Is there one someone would recommend? thanks

I got the single from steeda. I guess it would just depend on how much adjusting you would want/need.

I would recommend lca, relocation brackets, uca and mount. Since you're doing the panhard bar, replacing the brace isn't a bad idea either.

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong as I am by no means a suspension expert. I just know what others have done and suggested and what I've done myself.

panhard bar

A A Ron I have the BC's well and I found it easier to get BMR's double adjustable one because you can literally adjust it by hand while under the car with out lifting it, then lock it with a wrench once you get your axle centered.

As for the upper control arm and mount I kept it all BMR as well as the lower control arms and relocation bracket.

The brand is kind of six of one and half a dozen of the other the... important thing is to get all of one brand..................I've use Whiteline and I'm sure BMR is fine also...............a double adjustable is all you need and all I've ever used on street cars or race cars.
When I lowered mine I just started out with an adjustable pan hard bar........the next thing I put on was LCA's..............then an adjustable UCA. You should really look at replacing the rearend carrier bushing that the UCA attaches to on the axle housing..........I used a BMR because the design is like the OE GT500 bushing only Poly instead of rubber. The OE GT500 bushing is a harder durometer than stock and would also be a good choice as it's much stronger than the stock bushing.
With my setup...I used the adjustable LCA's and preloaded the chassis slightly which along with the carrier bushing allows my Mustang to hook really well without having to relocate the LCA's.
I don't really care for the relocation brackets hanging so low.....
You really don't need adjustable LCA's or UCA unless you want to play around with pinion angles.............especially if you don't want to put relocation brackets on............
If you need help just ask......................there are people on this forum that are a wealth of knowledge.

An old racers tip....................use red loctite on the threads and when you tighten everything take a permanent marker and draw a line across the flats of the lock nut and corresponding one on the bar.......this is a real quick reference to show nothing has moved.................and yes, I have seen them move under heavy use.
Pardon the picture..........I was making adjustments and forgot to mark the flat of the locknut....................at least I've got two corresponding marks.

For the differential bushing? And awesome choice! You won't be disappointed going with BMR. I haven't had a single problem with any of my BMR suspension comments and I beat the crap out of my suspension.

Rod ends as I've call them for 40+ years and not really suited for the street.
Unless they are sealed they get very dirty quite easily and would wear quickly.
Also, they transmit vibration and noise..............100 times more than poly bushings.
Leave the rod ends for a race car.

When I lowered mine I went with the BMR panhard bar, LCA, and UCA without the bracket and everything seemed fine.
