    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Alex from American Muscle here, and today, I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod, for your 2005 through 2014 Mustang. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit's going to appeal to and what you should be expecting in terms of performance, the construction and materials that went into this Panhard Rod, what you should expect to be spending. And then lastly, we're gonna take a very quick look at what's entailed to get this installed, where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor, and I'll have a little bit more for you on that later. So, if you've been behind the wheel of your '05 through 2014 for quite some time or if you just picked up your Mustang, you probably noticed that with the front engine and rear wheel drive layout that the car does have a little bit of a tendency to have its rear-end slide all over the place. Not only that, you probably know that it has a little bit of trouble getting off the [inaudible 00:00:53]. So, enter BMR which consists of a bunch of drag racing yahoos which saw a void in the aftermarket community for something like this as the factory rod that's on the Mustang right now just isn't that tough. So, this should definitely not only appeal to any '05 through '14 Mustang owner that's finding themselves at the track more often than not, but I truly think this is gonna be a fantastic modification for any Mustang owner that's looking to help alleviate wheel hop, as well as drastically improving their traction when pushing your car through turns, to ensure that you're keeping it on the ground where it belongs and not on the side of the road. This BMR Panhard bar is also a great option if you just lowered your Mustang and are looking to re-center the rear. So, by definition, if you're unfamiliar with what a Panhard Rod does, it essentially reduces the lateral movement between your rear wheels to keep your axle centrally located, which the factory bar doesn't really do that great a work on doing this, especially if you're gonna be lowering your car, which I'm gonna say that this is gonna be a must to keep everything in check so you don't have that floating rear-end. So, just to piggyback on what I had said about lowering your car, if you've already done it or if you're in the process of looking into dropping your Mustang, it'd be a great idea to pick up one of these at the same time. I will say that if you're gonna pair this with springs, maybe even a set of lower control arms and a front or rear sway bar kit, they're all essentially gonna work hand-in-hand with each other to give you some of the best handling possible. So, in terms of the construction and materials here guys, if you're unfamiliar with BMR, these guys have been around for quite some time. They design, build, and repeatedly test and abuse their products right here in the U.S. Their quality to detail and their craftsmanship is consistent throughout their entire line and it's definitely evident right here on the table. We're gonna see that BMR is gonna have this manufactured out of one-and-a-quarter inch, heavy duty steel here, with chrome-only adapters, as well as a chrome-only adjuster. And I will add that one of the greatest aspects about this kit is that it is on-car adjustable. So, that means that depending on if you're gonna be taking your car down a quarter-mile track, doing some auto-crossing or a road course, you can essentially adjust this on the fly on the car with a wrench to suit whichever driving surface you're gonna be on. So, last but not least here guys, one of the greatest aspects about this kit is gonna be the use of a 95-durometer, internally-greased and fluted bushing, which is gonna be right here on the ends. If you've ever seen a panhard rod, you know where they're gonna be. And again, one of the best things about this is gonna be the bushings, as well as it being fully-adjustable, to give you a very stiff, as well as an aggressive ride. So, in terms of the pricing here guys, you should expect to be shelling out just about 140 bucks for this kit, which in my opinion is honestly a steal. You gotta run that in comparison with some other options out there which can easily go for double. At the end of the day, you're gonna be giving your Mustang that much better traction improvement and handling. And again, if you're gonna be pairing this with some other suspension modifications, it's essentially just gonna give you that much more of a better ride. So, switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and about an hour's worth of wrenching to get this onto your Mustang. Now, the easy installation here is definitely gonna be a huge selling point for me as it should be for any '05 through '14 Mustang owner as it's not gonna be rocket science or brain surgery. With a basic set of tools and a little bit of elbow grease, you're gonna have this on in no time. So, let's take a closer look at what's gonna be entailed. So, looking ahead, some things I'd make sure to have on hand here would be a couple of wrenches, a full socket set, a jack and stands. You're gonna wanna start by pulling your factory Panhard rod bolts out and then essentially swapping it back in place with this. Now, because this specific kit has polyurethane bushings, you're gonna wanna insert the rod with them facing down and the 90-degree fittings on the driver side. Torque them down to 130-foot pounds, lube them up, and you're damn near done. Now, I do wanna mention that a couple steps here will be missing as this is gonna be a quick glance at what's involved to get this on. The guys at BMR are gonna have some very detailed information that will come supplied with this Panhard rod, as well as us having a ton of additional info online. All right guys, just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. No matter if you're the die-hard drag racer, or if you're just hitting the track on Friday night grudge matches, or if you're just looking to make your driving experience that much more controlled and enjoyable, I would definitely suggest checking this out for your Mustang. So that's my quick review and breakdown of the BMR Panhard Rod in red, fitting your 2005 through 2014 Mustang, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Quality Construction. Made from 1.25" heavy wall DOM steel with chromoly tube adapters, this Panhard Rod by BMR features a CNC-machined, heavy duty, chromoly center adjuster.

    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.

      BMR all the way!

      I love this BMR set up! I had a shop do the install since I dont have the tools to complete this properly! I combined this and lowering springs and what a difference to straight line performance, felt an immediate difference in the rear staying in a straight line....definitely going BMR all the way(install cost was springs included)

      Review from BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar - Hammertone (05-14 All)

      BMR!

      I installed the hammertone grey panhard bar which nicely matched the BMR rear upper and lower control arms. Looks pretty tough under the car I must say. The adjustable P bar is a bit more hefty than the oem and is an absolute must if you lower your rear end at all. My axle shifted over to the left at least an inch maybe more with the Eibach Sportline lowering springs. The P bar connecting to the under body on the right side and connecting to rear axle on left side, gives you left/right axle adjustment to center it again. I basically took a 2x4 piece of wood placed against the top and bottom of the rear tire, looked at the space between the board and the top of the fender well and did the same on the other side. Basically jacked up car up for room to make the adjustment after the bar was installed, jack up under the rear axle center to keep suspension at ride height, making P bar adjustment until both sides were perfect equal. The install was fairly easy. Adjust took 5 minutes.

      This is the best bar to buy, worth every dollar, easy to adjust. Just dab some loctite on the threads when you tighten them down after adjusting!

      Panhard Rod Install

      The rod fits perfect and install takes about one to two hours. If you are running larger differential cover you should use BMR'S Panhard Bar reloction bracket it will make the install go better and give you the room you need for the cover.

      Nice addition.

      Not a bad install. Just be ready to overcome the occasional small hurdle. No instructions (had to pull them from the internet). Needed a rubber mallet and sturdy screwdriver to get the bar in place and holes aligned (grease outside of bushings to help). It took about 90 minutes in all to installed. Pro tip: You don't have to lower the vehicle on the ground to adjust. Just lower it onto two jackstands that are supporting the rear axle. It gives you more room and it's much easier.

      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!

      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.
