That's the same setup I'm going with...please post pics

Thanks for all the info guys I'm going to order my adjustable Panhard Bar as well.


EDIT: Just spoke to Dan @ Spohn and ordered the black adjustable panhard bar. Now I have to wait till the BT 963sp shows up

Sorry guys I've been running around trying to get ready for deployment and forgot to take some pics. I dropped my truck off with MGH so I'll see if he can take a pic or two.

That's a horrible excuse jk bud stay safe on deployment, I'll be ordering an adjustable panhard bar as well very soon. When you installed it did you have to actually make any adjustments or was it lined up pretty well "out of the box" so to speak? Also how did you install it, as in how did you lift the truck to install it? I'd imagine the axle would shift when you lift up the truck as well or something. Never had to remove a panhard bar before lol

It'll show up set to the stock length. I made 2 plumb bobs with string and washers which I taped to the fenders. Install the bar at the stock length. It'll go on no problem. Loosen the jam nuts and rotate the adjuster nut to lengthen the bar. Use the plumb bobs to measure the gaps until both sides look equal. Drop some loc-tite on the threads and tighten your jam nuts. And I did all this with the rear axle sittin on jack stands.

When I set my panhard bar up in my camaro we installed the bar, and left the wheels off and put the axle on jackstands to simulate the weight of the truck on the suspension.

Then we measure off of the hubs on the axles to the frame rails.
