Lloosen the panhard rod bolts. Remove both bolts and pry the panhard rod out of the mounts.

ADJUSTABLE PANHARD RODS
Lift vehicle and support with jack stands.
Loosen the panhard rod bolts. Remove both bolts and pry the panhard rod out of the mounts.
Adjust the BMR panhard rod to the length of the factory rod. This is a good starting point; the adjustment will be done in a later step. Leave the jam nuts on the adjuster (or rod ends) loose.
Position the BMR panhard rod into the mounts with the grease fittings (polyurethane equipped bushings only) pointing down. If installing the poly/rod combo panhard rod position the poly bushing to the body side mount. Insert the factory bolts and torque to 129 ft/lbs.
If equipped with polyurethane bushings, lube each grease fitting approximately 2-3 pumps.
For this step the vehicle must be at ride height. Measure both wheel positions in the wheel wells as shown in the image to the right. If they are already equal or within 1/8” tighten the jam nuts and disregard step 6 - you are done. If the two measurements are not equal, proceed to the next step.
With the jam nuts loose, adjust the Panhard rod clockwise or counter-clockwise, depending on which way you need the car to move. The car body will slide left or right depending on which way you turn. Once the rear is centered, tighten the jam nuts.
NOTE: To prevent the jam nuts from backing off, we recommend using Loctite - Blue to secure them once the adjustment is complete.
These guys are great! Customer service is absolutely top notch. Their pricing points are spot on and every month they off some sort of special on multiple parts. Not only that but the staff will educate you on the parts and their customer reveiw option of every part has been a huge help in determining the validity of each part you buy. American Muscle is the perfect example of what a full service parts distributor and custom tuning shop should be. I'm just glad they are Mustang exclusive!
