I got a deal on some BBR Billet lower control arms. Install question inside.

Should I install them with a adjustable panhard bar. Car isn't lowered or going to be lowered for a while.

If you're not lowering your car, there's no reason to install a panhard bar.
You should Google a panhard bar to get familiar with it's purpose.

Roger that, other than the fact the aftermarket PH would help locate the rear axle better than the stock one with it's jelly-filled doughnuts for bushings. I just replaced the bushes with poly in the stock arm and it settled the rear down nicely on my last Mustang (a 2012 BBP). The body stopped racing the axle to see who could get to the ditch first. I did the same thing to my 2014 but, bc it's an auto, it didn't really need the help as much.

I know the purpose but I asked anyway because that's what this board is for.

Yes, I suggest you change the PHB now. I just installed one because I was tired of looking at the back of our car and seeing the wheels not centered. Benefit is the way the car feels now besides seeing the wheels in the right spot.

Change the PHB even if you're not lowered right now. You said lowering is in the future so you will be ready and the install will be done while you're doing the LCA's. The install for both LCA & PHB are really easy so knock it out. Once lowered take your measurement's by using a plum bob and tape it on the peak of your fender then take your tape measure and measure from lip on rim to plum bob string. Get both side the same measurement and booooooom your done.
