    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the BMR adjustable panhard bar for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. This panhard bar from BMR is going to be a good option for the '05 to '14 owners out there that are looking for the benefits of a panhard bar for a lowered S197 that sees a lot of street time. In general, panhard bars are a great suspension mod. They can offer a lot of benefits. And as such, they tend to be one of the first suspension mods that owners tackle. There are a lot of options when it comes to panhard bars, and you're gonna want to choose which type you go with based off of your car and what you plan on doing with it. I'd say that a panhard bar is a must-have upgrade if you're serious about improving the suspension on your S197, and that's because the purpose of a panhard bar is to keep the rear axle from moving side to side. The side to side movement in the rear axle is created by chassis flex and twist and it will have an impact on the consistency of the handling. The stock components are weak and they're designed for comfort, which is why they allow for these twists and the movements. If the rear axle is allowed to move and it doesn't stay centered, you'll experience rear steer and your ability to corner will be reduced. A panhard bar is going to center your rear, which will not only be an issue if the rear is moving during cornering from chassis flex, but once you start doing other suspension upgrades and lowering your car, the panhard bar will help keep the geometry correct. The BMR panhard bar is made to stop this movement, which will help with traction and handling since the rear will be forced to stay centered. There are a few features that are gonna make the BMR panhard bar here different than others on the site. I'd say that this is a good choice for lowered cars simply because it's adjustable. We all know when you lower your car the geometry changes and so adjustable suspension components tend to work best in these situations. The BMR is on-car adjustable, which means that you can fine tune your suspension with the bar installed. You don't need to remove it to make any adjustments. Now, that's not to say that you shouldn't run an adjustable panhard bar if your car isn't lowered, but you really should consider an adjustable bar if you are lowered. This panhard bar will work for both street and track applications, but I specifically say that it's great for a car that sees a lot of street time due to the bushing setup and the material that it's made out of. Bushing setups and suspension parts are very important. They're going to create a different type of performance from parts that are made the same way. So the bushing setup is always important to consider. This panhard bar is great for a car that sees a lot of street time because it has a spiral fluted greasable polyurethane bushing. The poly bushings are stiff enough to reduce deflection and add stiffness, which is what you want here, but it's not going to add so much rigidity that it causes a terrible ride quality for a street car. Bushings have a big effect on ride quality and NVH, and a lot of times choosing a suspension setup comes back to finding the perfect combo that will stiffen up the rear and stop unwanted movement, enough to improve traction and handling but not so much that you hate driving a car. The amount of NVH and stiffness in the ride all comes down to personal preference and what you use your car for. The fact that they're greasable means that they will be easy to maintain with the bar still installed on the car. And the adjustable ends are Chromoly CNC machined with rolled threads. These are nice components that are going to make the adjustments easy and keep the bar highly functional as well. The bar does have a steel tubular construction. It's a thick diameter as well, one and a quarter inch, so that's going to make it rigid, a lot more rigid than the factory bar is. It's then finished with a black hammer tone powder coat. And while you won't necessarily see the color of the bar when it's installed, the powder will give it some corrosion resistance, and that's only going to benefit an under car suspension component. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that while a panhard bar can and will make a difference by itself, it definitely pairs great with other suspension mods. It'll help with traction and handling by itself, but keep in mind that there isn't just one part that will fix all traction and handling issues, but a good combination of upgrades can totally change a Mustang's performance. As far as price, at the end of the day a panhard bar isn't necessarily all that expensive. This panhard bar costs a little under $150, which is more expensive than the non-adjustable panhard bars but less expensive than some of the more complicated and track-ready options. If you're not worried about NVH, there are some more radical choices that are available. And one is not necessarily better than the other at face value. It all depends on what you're building and what you're building it for. They have different features that will give different performances. The install for this panhard bar does require a little bit of knowledge, but overall it's not difficult. So I'm gonna call it a solid one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, but mostly just because of the adjustment process. It'll take about two hours to complete. If you tackle this install yourself, you need a few different sockets and wrenches and a way to get the car in the air so you can work under the rear. There are covers covering the factory panhard bar bolts but they're easy to remove. The factory bar is held in by two bolts, but you will need to loosen the panhard bar support brace in order to get the stock bar out. There will be a little assembling of the new panhard bar before you can install it like the bushings, the ends. And since this is adjustable, you wanna make sure that it's the same length as the factory bar before installing. The actual install of the new bar will be the same as the removal of the factory bar. Once the bar is installed, it'll need to be adjusted. The panhard bar is adjusted by twisting the bar by hand to adjust the body of the car over the axle. You can accomplish this by measuring each side after you adjust the bar, and there are a few different ways that you can do that. Once everything is adjusted, all you have to do is lock everything into place. Wrapping things up here, the BMR panhard bar has a tubular steel construction and it's on-car adjustable with poly bushings that will be more forgiving to a street car. It's a great option for lowered cars and will work to improve traction and handling, especially in corners, therefore tightening up the rear end. You can check it out more online along with all of your other rear suspension upgrade options right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    driving conditions Would upgrading a Panhard Bar, along with a set of sway bars increase winter driving traction?

    muztang

    • The BMR panhard bar is a great product. It'll help make sure the axle is centered under the car if it has been lowered. It's greaseable and the bushing don't deflect much. For winter driving, you'd get better traction by spending your money on a set of all season or winter tires with a more aggressive tread pattern. Put 100 pounds of sand or kitty litter in the trunk too. Winter driving for most folks means just getting around. BMR suspension parts really shine when getting down or around the track in good weather.

    Is there a specific way that the Panhard bar is suppose to go in? For an example, which side does the adjustable go. The driver side or the passenger side?

    GerardoL

    • Yes, the BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod would install with the grease fittings pointing downward and the 90 degree grease fitting on the drivers side of the vehicle. You can reference the install guide here: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/390589-manu.pdf.

    Lee

    • This BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod will work on non-lowered and lowered Mustangs. If you for see your Mustang be lowered in the future, we would recommend an adjustable bar that way a new bar would not be required.

    What does adjusting the are do. Is it better for it be stiff or Loose for lowered cars

    pootieStang

    • Adjusting the panhard bar compensates for any axle movement created from lowering your car or other suspension changes.

    I ordered the BMR non adjustable pan hard bar but plan on getting lowering springs. I read that installing lowering springs will offset the Center of gravity and that an adjustable pan hard is highly recommended. How much difference is there after installing the lowering spings, and is the adjustable one necessary or can I stick with the non adjustable? I also have the BMR lower control arms just nothing installed yet.

    ChrisJ

    • The BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar is used to center the axle after lowering. The non adjustable factory unit will cause the rear axle to shift to one side when the car is lowered, necessitating an adjustable panhard bar to recenter the axle.

      BMR panhard Needed

      I did some research into getting a panhard bar because I wasn't sure if I really needed to re-center my rear after lowering it. Well, everywhere I went, they were saying to get one. I went ahead and purchased the bar, and luckily I did. After installing some coilovers (Pedders), I noticed that the rear end of the car did indeed shift...not much, but it did. After installing the bar, which was fairly straight forward, it was really simple adjusting it to re-center the back end. One side was reading about 1" while the other side was 1 1/4". I simply adjusted the bar and got both sides dialed in right at 1 1/8". I would recommend getting an adjustable panhard bar, especially if you're thinking about lowering. Install took me about 2 hours simply because I had to loosen the panhard bar brace in order to get it out. Also, it was a little aggravating putting the passenger side back in. Grease up the ends before trying to install...it will make it a lot easier!

      Night and day difference.

      Awesome product. Love the on car adjustability and the handling inprovement. Can take corners quicker and can feel the rear no swaying as much. Only reason i give 4 stars is because its a pain to put in. On my car anyways i had to hammer it into the spots unlike factory just slides in and out of brackets.

      Very Solid, Perfect fitting.

      If your looking for a panhard bar that has bushing that will actaully stay in one piece, this is for you. I had an SR Perf one and all the bushings literally shreded and i had alot of rear end sway and clanking... it sucked. bought this because on how its all one solid design. i have everything BMR for suspension on my custom build. BMR is top of the line!

      Got this along w\ BMR Panhard Bar brace to make use of the poly bushings to reduce\eliminate rear axle lateral flexing and to make use of the adjustability if needed. Set new PH bar to same length as the stock unit to start with. Install was very straightforward....all went together smooth and simple. Got all greased up and test drove Stang.....rear axle felt good and stable w\ good articulation so all is well. BMR products are the real deal!
