Review & Installation Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my quick breakdown of the SR Performance adjustable panhard bar, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. SR Performance has really made quite an impact in the aftermarket Mustang world, thanks to their wide variety of performance and suspension components that do fit nicely into just about anyone’s budget. If you’d like to keep tabs on all the latest SR Performance products released for your ride, just click the link below or up in the corner to subscribe to our YouTube channel, here you can check out some of my overviews as well as many other cool Mustang vids. Ok, so to recap, the job of any panhard bar stock or aftermarket, is to reduce any side to side or lateral movement of the rear axle, which can otherwise hurt your traction and handling performance. The problem is, the stock panhard bar is usually not up to the abuse most Mustang owners subject their cars to. The weaker materials and soft rubber bushings can oftentimes flex, which means that rear axle is going to be moving all over the place, hurting not only your traction off the line but also your handling in corners. If you happen to be watching this video somewhere other than our site just click the link below to go back to our product page. Here you can read some customer reviews and see some testimonials on how this bar from SR has improved their handling performance. This particular panhard bar from SR Performance offers all the bells and whistles you’d like to see in any aftermarket panhard bar, but for an extremely reasonable price, for starters we’re looking at an extremely strong T6 Billet aluminum for the construction, which has been finished off in this nice sleek black powder coat. But without a doubt the two biggest features with this bar has to be the full adjustability, in addition to these two spherical rod end bearings, otherwise known as heim joints, used to connect the bar to the chassis itself, and to the actual rear axle. That adjustability is going to allow you to dial in your optimal settings and pinion angle, which is truly important if you’re trying to improve on those 60ft times. in addition, that adjustment is going to be clutch if you have a lowered Mustang, because it’s going to allow you to properly center the rear axle underneath the car, which is otherwise not really possible with a stock or non-adjustable panhard bar. If you have any more questions or you’re curious as to how this bar might help your own ride, get in touch with one of our Mustang experts, you can give them a call at 1-855-422-7439 or shoot them an email at support@AmericanMuscle.com, they’ll be more than happy to school you on the benefits of running this bar from SR Performance. Getting back to the heim joints I was talking about earlier, these guys are used in place of those soft rubber factory bushings that can often flex or distort under hard launches and cornering. These heim joints here are far stronger than those soft rubber bushings, and they’re going to keep that rear axle in check at all times. As far as the install is concerned, it is pretty simple thanks to the fact that you’re really only removing two bolts. Keep in mind that you’ll be doing all of the work under the rear end of the car, so of course make sure you have your jack stands or ramp stand in before getting started. Because it is pretty simple to get everything bolted up we’re going to call it about an hour from start to finish, but if it does take you a little longer to make all those fine tuning adjustments, don’t get discouraged, and as always if you have any problems, give us a call. So if you want to make a small investment that will have a noticeable improvement on your handling, and off the line performance, then going with an adjustable panhard bar like this option from SR Performance would be an excellent choice.

Improves Handling. Upgrade your Mustangs suspension to a SR Performance Adjustable Panhard Bar to eliminate the unwanted flex and twist commonly found with the poorly designed factory panhard bar. The SR Performance Adjustable Panhard Rod keeps the rear axle located in the optimum position under the rear of the car, dramatically improving traction, cornering and overall handling performance.

On-Car Adjustable. The SR Performance S197 Mustang Panhard Bar is on-car double adjustable allowing you to dial in your suspensions settings. Simply loosen the jam nuts and re-set the center as desired for improved traction and better handling.

Aluminum Bushings. This SR Performance Panhard Bar features Aurora (heim joint) spherical rod end bearings with aluminum bushings on both the chassis and axle side. The result is great traction during straight-line acceleration and predictable grip during hard cornering.

Superior Construction. Made in the USA from T6 billett aluminum for superior strength and rigidity, SR Performance completes their Panhard Bar with a black powder coat finish for long lasting durability and good looks.

Application. This SR Performance Adjustable Panhard Bar is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

I put springs on and now my axel is off center, will this fix the axel due to the lowering it? I put H&R super sport springs on and now i can feel the "gliding" of the car when i make turns, will this panhard bar center the axel and hold it there during turns?

  • yes, it might take a few adjustments to get perfect but it does work to center and secure rear axle.

I installed these on a 2005 GT convertible. It does seem to be loose on the bolt that holds it to the chassis, sliding a little bit. I installed the washers provided, one on each side, and tightened the nuts. I can hear a clicking noise from the left side, when going in reverse and turning at low speed. I can also hear the same clicking noise when going over small bumps. Is there anything else I should adjust? p.s. full disclosure: I also installed new shocks and lower springs the same time. Can the new rear shocks cause this clicking noise? Thanks!

Me

  • The Panhard bar should not be loose and it should not be making noise. It seems the bar is not bolted down enough. Since you did lower the car, it is recommended to get an alignment. While there, I would have the shop check out the Panhard bar and make sure it is not interfering with any other parts.

    Get what you pay for!

    I installed the SR Performance double adjustable pan hard with hiem joints at the same time I installed SR's 1.5" drop springs. The springs were cheap and perform perfectly however the pan hard bar was hard to install and is noisy as heck. I guess I should have known being that there's no bushings but liked the price and didn't see any comments that mentioned noise problems. The noise got bad enough (4 months in) that I got back under to check that the nuts had not come loose and noticed that it's actually making two different noises. The hiem joint which is somewhat expected though it's louder than I thought it would be and something inside the bar when a load is put on it. Presumably its connection point between the bar itself and the threaded rods that are used to adjust the length. Bottom line... After four months I've decided to cut my losses and buy a new more expensive bar. I gave it a two because it did properly align my rear axle and it did seem fo provide an extra bit of rigidity to the suspension but at the cost of way to much creaking and groaning.

    It might be a good track car bar, but if you are looking to improve your daily driver better get something with urethane bushings. I installed this bar as a part of overall suspension upgrade (lowering K springs, Bilstein shocks, urethane bushings) and was surprised how much noise I got on bumps, though I was blaming it on the rest of the package. (I do admit that handling improved a lot!) Then, after 10k miles on Detroit streets and highways, the small aluminum inserts broke and I replaced this bar with one with bushings. That made all the difference! All noise is gone now and I just love my Stang!

    The SR Performance Panhard Bar is a waste of money. The bushings only lasted 6 months with normal driving. Also, beware there is no warranty for this part.

    Buy a sturdier bar

    After a couple months, the bar began to make loud creaking sounds. After inspection it was found that the bar could be moved when it was pushed/pulled even though everything was tight. I bought a BMR bar with poly bushings. It is much more heavy duty and I haven't had any problems with it.

    DO NOT BUY

    The bar itself seems fine, but the spacers it uses for mounting are cheap aluminum and get crushed, along with the mounting point on your car, if you try to tighten it to the instructed 129 ft/lbs. We spent the rest of the day and most of the night trying to get the bar back out and fix the mounting point just so we could put the old bar back in until we get a different one. Spend the extra money on something with better quality.

    STAY AWAY!!!!

    Got the Panhard bar due to when I mounted my slicks right set out about a inch more than left side. Got it in two days express mail. Simple installations. Took around 30 mins to install. 2 hours later cars rear end started making noises when turning quick or during weight transfer checked the jam nuts they was still tight. The problem was the cheap includes bearing inserts and there is no way to lock the bearing ends from twisting and pivoting during driving so always hear that horrible "metal on metal" sound. Had it on about 200 miles took it off and sending it back to American muscle. Spend the extra money and get one with fixed poly bearing ends with middle bar adjustment points not rod end adjustment points. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARABGE spend the extra $40 and get a quality product.

    Weak spacers.....

    I don't usually review any products but this thing annoyed me big time and almost left me in a bind so I'm going to. The bar is fine...no problems there, left hand and right hand threaded so you can adjust on the car. Problem is, they give you these weak aluminum high misalignment spacers to go on either end of the rod ends. With a torque spec of 129 FT/lbs given in the instructions, these wimpy spacers, being .030 wall at their thinnest, crush and deform until they collapse on themselves. Luckily I had ordered two of them for customer cars and had extra spacers otherwise I would have been screwed. Torque to 50 lbs max and swedge bolt/nut with a center punch so it wont move or use lock-tight. For the record, american muscle customer service has always been great to me and they are sending out a new hardware pack.

    Terrible!!!

    Installed after lowering my car and now all I hear is a clunk. Bar seemed to be of cheap quality and the Heims joints are a joke along with the placement of the jam nuts. Do not buy and spend the extra on the BMR bar with poly bushings that able to be greased with a zirc fitting.

    Not the quality I expected

    I bought this adjustable bar when I planned to lower my Stang. The install was easy enough as was the adjustment. However, the bar was simply not the quality I was looking for. Aside from being very light, after driving with the bar I found it to be extremely noisey. Since the end links are not greasable, the part makes a sharp metallic clank as the suspension moves and flexes. This noise is audible outside of the car and makes your ride sound like a clunker! Do yourself a favor and skip this part!

Many people warned about this but I took a chance. good looking bar, but very weak at the connection with the aluminum spacers.

    Does SR mean "SOON REPLACEMENT"??

    Purchased the SR adjustable panhard bar from AM on 8-7-15. It is now mid/late November 2015 and noticed the SR panhard bar has a substantial crack on it that measures about 4" in length and the crack is opened so I guess it's more than just a crack. In addition to the crack the bar "flexes" under hand pressure and might have the start of a slight bend. The bar was installed per the suggested manufacturers specs with a calibrated torque wrench. My car has seen one weekend at the track, normal daily driving, has 484rwhp and I have not hit or ran into anything so I do not know what caused the crack. It was probably a manufacturing defect that caused the crack. The bar did install easily and had a noticeably better feel once installed. AM was awesome with customer service AS ALWAYS, they replaced the bar at no charge!! I would recommend the bar even with mine failing because I bet this was just a one off issue.

    Good with problems

    Every thing was going well. After setting the length, and installing, the instructions tell you to tighten the frame bolts to 129 ft. lbs. If you do this the aluminum spacers will crush. I don't even know if I have enough tension on the bolts. I stopped short of 100 ft. lbs. because I was scared of doing more damage. Not sure how I feel about this. Steel spacers would be better. Aluminum is just too soft.

    It's a good product and works great but:

    Tightening and especially untightening the lock that sits between the pinch flange is a pain. I could not get my wrench in the tight place to turn it more than a 1/4 inch at a time I had to remove the Bar completely to break the lock nuts free to make a final adjustment. for ease of adjustment It would have been much easier with a Pan Hard bar where the adjustment nuts are located more in the center. Actual install time was a bit more than an hour as I had to remove and replace the bar with my install.

    DO NOT BUY

    Everything about this product is bad from the strength of the bar, lousy joints and aluminum spacers that you can't even torque to 75lbs needless to say the 129lbs that they recommend. Do yourself a favor and spend extra money on a real panhard bar. Would be zero stars but you're forced to put at least one.

    You get what you pay for!

    Do not buy this panhard bar! It is cheaply made and will not last very long. If you want to be constantly tightening, adjusting, and listening to it vibrate then this is the panhard bar for you! Take my advice and spend a little more on a panhard bar that is heavier and has full size plastic bushings. Don't say I didn't warn you!!!

    Warning bushings are weak and will break/fail

    I bought this part in the spring and installed it right after getting it. While the install only took about an hour, three of the four aluminum bushings broke in half within less then 4 months causing me to remove it and install an actual good quality bar with good bushings. I only drive my car on the weekends too so while I say 4 months it was less then 600 miles before I had an issue. Since the bushings broke, the whole panhard bar could move allowing it to make noise from the rear and not have a solid feeling. When I went to install the new bar, the mounting points on the axle had to be opened up because the bushings are so weak on this one, that the mounting points actually bent in due to the bushings being so weak. You can't actually tighten the bolt to the spec of 129ft/lbs because the bushings on this will start to crush around 70ft/lbs. AM was very good with me returning the product for a full refund but it was a total waste of my time and hassle. I spent an hour to install this part but over 6 hours to remove the bar, re-open up the brackets that are attached to the axle and install a new one.

    SR Performance Adjustable Panhard Bar Install

    The SR Panhard Bar was the best back for the buck for what I was looking for. I installed the bar on my 2008 Shelby GT coupe that was lowered at SAI with a FPP spring and damper kit. My rear end was out by 3/8" to the drives side, now its centered dead nuts by using this product. It seems like a quality piece and only time will tell on how well it holds up. The installation instructions were straight forward and all the parts and pieces needed for the install were provided. It would be nice if SR offered the upper bar also for a matching low price.
