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.

Improved Traction. Long-lasting good looks and the highest levels of performance can be yours with BMR Suspension's aftermarket products. This Adjustable Panhard Rod controls lateral movement and locates the position of the rear axle housing. This red powdercoated Panhard Rod utilizes polyurethane to eliminate bushing deflection, which will drastically enhance the handling characteristics of your S197 at launch, while cornering, and during normal driving. It's the ideal product for the enthusiast who demands maximum suspension performance, as the on-car adjustability allows for easy customization.

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. With 95-durometer, internally-fluted, greasable polyurethane bushings, your 2005-2014 Mustang will feel more responsive over stock. Less wheel hop and improved traction are yours to be had with this upgrade. Finished off in a red powdercoat, this Adjustable BMR Panhard Rod is sure to perform well and look great at the same time.

On-Car Adjustable. You can easily fine tune your suspension with this BMR Panhard Bar. With its on-car adjustability, you can make changes with just the turning of a wrench. No need to remove it to make adjustments.

Application. Made in the USA, this red BMR Suspension On-car Adjustable Panhard Rod is designed to fit 2005-2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and GT500 models.

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

  • 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.

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.

    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!!

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

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very Cost Effective

    This adjustable panhard bar is a great value. If you're lowering your car, chances are you will need to center the body over the rear axle afterwards. In addition to being adjustable, the poly bushings and overall strength of this bar are a big improvement over stock.

    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.

    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.
