Superior Construction. This J&M tubular adjustable steel panhard rod is manufactured from high strength 1.25" outer diameter steel tubing making it extremely strong. The panhard rod adjuster is forged from 4340 Chrome-Moly steel and features formed rolled threads (not cut threads like the competition) it is then clear zinc plated and heat treated for additional strength.

Greaseable. The included grease fittings allow for easy on car maintenance of the highly durable energy suspension polyurethane bushings.

Does this panhard require the bushings to be greased? I noticed the customer installation guide was for the aluminum J&M Panhard bar, however, this steel version comes pre-assembled. Are the bushing greased and is it ready to be installed out of the box?


  • They do not come greased! But it's an easy thing to do. Just take the bushing out of the panhard bar ends and grease them. They're in there tight so I found the best way to get them out was to hook up a grease gun and pump some grease in and the bushings will push out, then you can pull them out and grease them evenly. To reassemble, take the grease zerk nipple out with a small socket, and push them back together. Reinstall the grease zerk nipple and repeat on the other side. Make sure you are using a lithum based grease.

does this come with bushings? does this rod come with bushings?


  • Sorry for a late reply but yes they do come with the bushings and it was a pretty easy install and not to mention how you'll feel and see the difference especially with some aftermarket wheels.

Benefits for a stock height car? What benefits,if any, would you see on a car that has not been lowered?


  • It gives you the ability to 'center' the rearend in your car. I have had many Mustangs over the years and almost everyone of them the rearend wasn't centered exactly. You can really notice this when you run larger than stock wheels and tires. On one side you will have clearance issues and the other side you won't. With this bar you can make sure the rear is in the dead center of your car.

    Great product

    When I lowered my car I could tell the left rear tire stuck out a little more than the right so I bought this adjustable Panhard bar to fix it and it did. The install was easy and I definitely recommend this product.

    Best piece for the money, must buy even if stock car...

    There are many adjustable PHB's out on the market. If you step back for a moment and think about it, they're all just metal rods with adjustment nuts on them. Yes, some have more bells and whistles...but who cares? Function over form ladies and gents. Spend your heard earned money where it will do the most good. Now, with that being said, this J&M piece is very good. Solid welds, uniform (black) color. Uses standard street-friendly bushings (low noise) and is incredibly easy to both install and adjust. For the price point, this should nearly be mandatory for even stock cars. Why? Even stock cars have the potential for their rear end to be offset already. Measuring mine (and other cars), all of ours were off by some measure, typically towards the driver bias. When you lower a car, you just compound the problem with a 4 link. It is amazing how being slightly off can upset a rear end to the point it "skitters" over bumps and corners. Don't take a chance with unpredictable rear end fluctuations (let alone the overall degrading feel of a car not properly set up) and just install a Adjust PHB as one of your first mods. So, pick this up, and spend less than an hour to increase the predictability and reliability of your car. Install is simple - support the car (let suspension hand freely) and unbolt the original. Put the new/old side by side and make sure the new one is adjusted to identical length as the original. Install the new one, tighten to spec and lower vehicle to ground. Bias adjustment *must* be done while the car is on the ground! It takes no real force to move the tires slightly laterally so don't worry about it.

    I have a 2012 GT and after installing the eibach pro kit springs, the entire rear of the car shifted. Using this adjustable pan hard rod i was able to bring the rear tires back into alignment with the body of the car. For 100 bucks it cheap insurance that your suspension sits correctly.

    Nice Rod!

    I was a little worried when I bought this rod, because the price was lower than most other panhard rods. I did my homework first though, and saw the part got pretty good reviews, plus it's U.S.A. made. I lowered my last Stang (2011 GT) with Eibach Sportlines, and no panhard bar replacement. I decided to go with the H&R Super Sports on my 2014 GT which are almost an inch lower in the rear so I figured I should replace the rod with an adjustable. I don't know if it's the different springs or the panhard bar, but the car seems much tighter, and rides better than my other car without. I was surprised because I expected it to be worse going to a lower spring. The bar did a good job of relocating the axle back to the right. In fact too good of a job since I need to take it back to the shop because its slightly over adjusted right. That is the only problem I've noticed. I was going to adjust it myself, but I found it to be impossible to break the nuts loose with the car on the ground, or on jackstands. Hopefully the shop can get more leverage on it when the cars on a lift. This may be more a of problem with the shop over tightening it rather than the bar itself.

    Excellent Panhard

    I had a different brand's adjustable bar on my '12 Boss and it was heavier and more difficult to install. I decided to go with a different one on my '13. This J&M was cheaper, seems better made, and was easier to install. I only installed it a couple of weeks ago but I am very pleased with it overall. There is no reason to spend $$$ on the better known brands.

    Works, solid, nice

    It does what its suppose too. It has grease fittings, itS a well made piece. Only trouble i had with it was getting it greased after i put it on. Had to lower one side of the rod at brake check from them to fit the grease gun on the fitting. Worth it.

    J&M Adjustable Panhard Rod

    I lowered my car with the SR Performance springs from AM. Due to lowering the car, the axle shifts slightly. I corrected the problem with this panhard bar. I was able to get the exact same measurement on both wheels from the fender.

    J&M Panhard Bar Installation

    As soon as you get the factory panhard bar off you can clearly see the difference. This unit being adjustable certainly helps to re-center your rear end after you lower your car. I installed Eibach Sportlines along with the Eibach lower control arms. I matched the factory length but once they were installed I noticed I had more space between the tire and wheel well on the driver side. I immediately adjusted the drivers side control arm to even out the space. I used a plumb to check the rear end housings position and also noticed The axle was off center to the drivers side. So, I definitely needed an adjustable panhard bar to center my axle! Installing it took no more than 20 minutes with air tools. I supported the rear of the car with my heavy duty jack stands. Just be sure to allow the entire rear end to hang freely. Do not support the rear end with the jack stands! Once the bar was torqued to specs I began to lengthen the bar. Few more minutes of turning and I managed to center the rear end perfectly! Product did what it was supposed to do! I would definitely recommend this panhard bar to everyone that has lowered their car! Thanks American Muscle! Mike S.

    Nightmare for me.

    I lowered my 2014 mustang 1.5" and knew this item was necessary to realign the rear axle. It was a very easy install, but this item hasn't been the best for me. When I initially installed the panhard bar it was perfect! Suddenly, I started hearing popping in the suspension and couldn't figure out where it was coming from until one day I noticed the tightening nut on the left side was lose, causing movement. I may have received a defective item, but the item will loosen up daily and daily I have to tighten it. It has been a nightmare. I am replacing immediately!!! As I said before, I may have received a defective item but I'm definitely a little skeptical about items similar to this one and will be trying out a double adjustable panhard bar.

    Rear end off center.

    I didn't know how far my diff was off center till I measured clearance for a customer. After I added the wider tires, it was very obvious and needed to be fixed. This panhard bar was installed in less than 30 minutes, I went for a short ride to settle everything. Then I readjusted to center the rear under the chassis. Works great and looks great too!

    Went on like a dream

    I got the JandM Panhard rod because I was lowering my car, and of course whenever you lower your car you want to re-align the rear axle. This went on easy and comes with instructions on how to align the axle. Everything went nice and smooth and now the car looks, and drives great!
