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.

Improves Handling. Upgrade your Mustangs suspension to a BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod to eliminate the unwanted flex and twist commonly found with the poorly designed factory panhard bar.

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.

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

pootieStang

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.

Superchared06GT

  • 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.

I have a 2014 GT Convertible. I know certain frame connector parts are not needed because of extra factory bracing. Will this part fit a convertible, as stated for coupe GT's?

  • Panhard Rods are necessary for adjusting alignment after lowering a vehicle, and convertibles are no exception. This will fit convertibles no problem.

I ahve a 2013 Boss 302 'stang. Do I have to purchase a Panhard bar relocation bracket for my new BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar if I just go with the Ford racing Lowing K springs?

Cuttingnut

  • You might be thinking about the lower control arm relocation brackets. From what I understand an adjustable panhard bar does not need a modified bracket to make it work, the only time you want to do anything to the panhard bar bracketry is simply to strengthen the car. As for the lower control arm relocation brackets I would recommend getting them for a lowered car. Also, I would recommend getting adjustable lower control arms as well.

    Improved Handling

    This adjustable bar is great. My stock bar was bent like a boomerang...oops. Not only does the car feel stiffer, but now my rear axle is centered under the car. The install was quick and easy. The hardest part was getting the old panhard bar out. New one goes in easy and adjustments are a breeze. Print out/use the "Customer Submitted Installation Guide" under the "Installation" tab. They provide a few important details the manufacturer's instructions leave out. Thanks Brent NiezGocki for providing those great instructions!!

    BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar

    I lowered my car with the Eibach pro-system plus from AM. due to lowering the car, the axle shifts slightly. I corrected the problem with the BMR pan hard bar. I was able to get the exact same measurement on both wheels from the fender. I also installed a FRPP differential cover and have no clearance issues. BMR's suspension is top quality, I'm glad I chose them for my LCA's, UCA/mount, and panhard bar. Be sure to get some synthetic grease though, no petroleum based lubes as that will eat at the bushings over time.

    You get what you pay for.

    I had bought the J&M Adjustable Aluminum Panhard Rod when lowering my 2007 mustang but after 3 months the threads on one end stripped out leaving my daily driver car DOA . I called American Muscle about the issue and they gave me warranty info with J&M. I ordered the BMR 4130 chromoly Adjustable Panhard Bar and had it overnighted from A.M. The BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar is top quality and i highly recommend the chromoly & heavy wall DOM bar over an aluminum one.

    Sturdy and strong

    I bought this panhard bar to replace the garbage SR Performance one that has since been updated. The SR Performance the aluminum bushing rings had literally wallowed out and was banging every bump. I am so much happier with this panhard bar the polyurethane bushings feel awesome going down the road. The whole fit and finish looks good. The paint is also awesome has not chipped or rusted. adjustment was so easy it's not even funny so much easier than the SR performance bar. If you're getting lowering springs get this panhard bar. Installed these with Koni non adjustable shocks and struts so I would estimate it would take like an hour with standard garage setup.

    Get it centered

    So if you are planning to lower your GT, go ahead and plan on installing one of these. I noticed the axle shifter toward the driver side about 3/8" with a 1.25" drop. This BMR bar got it right back where it needs to be. Easy to install. Great quality. And the finish looks great too.

    Panhard bar is very well constructed, night and day difference over the stock piece. Dropped the car with H&R race springs and the rear noticeably shifted to the driver's side, the BMR piece did the trick and allowed it to be adjusted back into spec. Highly recommended!!

    Exceptional value

    This BMR panhard rod replaced a SR rod. Absolutely no comparison. For a little bit more money, the BMR rod provides exceptional value. The urethane bushings provide a tight connection over the cheap aluminum sleeves on the SR rod which were getting crushed and making a lot of noises with normal driving. The car is now quiet underneath with the BMR rod.

    Mixed Feelings

    This upgrade is minimal. Not bad for the money which is inexpensive but very, very little noticeable gains. However this could be because I have a Eibach Anti-Roll Kit in my car which was like night and day after install. This MOD can't hurt but don't expect big gains. Luckily it was inexpensive and install took less than 1 hour.

    Good Move

    I had been reading quite a bit about adding lowering springs to my Stang and I realized I needed to add a panhard bar with this improvement, so I checked out many reviews and decided to use this BMR bar. I was not disappointed. I really love the way this bar looks. If you are going to lower your ride you better change the panhard bar. I used the old bar to get the set the length and by the time I was done the rear axle was off by 3/4 of and inch, it sure was easy to correct that without having to take it off. took me less than 5 minutes to fix it. After taking the car to be aligned they told me it was dead on! Now on to American Muscle, shipping was fast and their service has always been top notch! Thanks AM for the great products you offer!

    I don't know how much I needed this. My Roush has their lowering springs which shifted the read about a half inch to the left. Now it is centered and I have piece of mind. I don't use my car at the track, so for street use I don't notice any performance advantage. It is a quality piece. Very easy to install. It looks great, so it's a shame no one came see it.

    Important Part of a Great set up!

    I had a Eibach Pro Damper Shocks and struts, Sportline Springs, Eibach Camber bolts, BMR Adjustable Panhard, BMR Adjustable Upper Control Arm and BMR lower control arms installed. The shop charges $540 for all of this and the alignment which also included the Strut bearing plate replacement. If you switch, buy these. Guy at the shop said factory ones are a joke and not even sealed. American Muscle delivered on price and shipment as always. I will ALWAYS buy from these guys anytime I can. Ride is stiffer and a little spring squeak. We are going to grease up the rear springs a little and that should help. Now for the real stuff.. Car looks amazing lowered. I am riding on AMR 20's and it is perfect. Launch is sssooo much better and the wheel hop is completely gone. The car takes a corner on rails and no body roll at all. Front end doesn't pop up on launch either. I recommend this set up to anybody! The Camber bolts gave plenty of adjustment to set the car straight on the rack.
