I'm willing to call them and ask for the shorter end links since they sold us the kits. I just wonder how that effects the description RC Dude posted below with the Pan Hard Bar. I'm not what you'd call an "engineer", and telemetry isn't exactly my "strong suit" lol

While I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination I know how to research things. Sometimes a little too late and not enough.

There is plenty of talk on multiple forums regarding lowering / lifting trucks with panhard rods / track bars and the effect on axle positioning when changing the truck height. Many different fixes also can be found from drilling new holes in the factory frame mount to making the panhard rod adjustable or purchasing an adjustable one. I found a simple picture that will maybe help explain or illustrate the movement that will be experienced when lowering without correction. McGaughy knows this which is why they provide a relocating bracket with some of their kits.
