    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the J&M Adjustable Panhard Bar for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. A lot of times panhard bars are one of the first places that people go to in order to tighten up the rear end of the 05 to 14 S197s, and rightfully so. A panhard bar can offer a lot of improvements, but there are some options when it comes to panhard bars, and you're going to want to choose which type to go with based off of your car and what you plan on doing with it. This adjustable panhard bar from J&M is a great option for the owners out there that are looking for the benefits of a panhard bar but that have a lowered or plan on lowering their car. 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 will have an impact on the consistency of the handling. If the rear axle is allowed to move this way, you will experience rear steer and your ability to corner will be greatly reduced. A panhard bar is also 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 J&M Panhard Bar is an encore adjustable bar, which makes it perfect for lowered cars. For deciding between an adjustable or non-adjustable bar, the first thing to keep in mind is that the adjustable bars work best for lowered cars and this reinforces what I said earlier about geometry. When you lower the car, you change the geometry, so adjustable suspension components tend to work best in that situation. 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 is made from tubular steel and it's made from a high-strength steel. Even the adjuster is forged from Chrome-Moly steel and has formed rolled threads as opposed to cut threads. The panhard bar is then clear zinc plated and heat treated as well, and it's finished with a black powder coat finish. While you won't necessarily see the color of the panhard bar underneath the car, the powder will give it some corrosion resistance and that's only going to benefit in other car suspension components. J&M includes greasable polyurethane bushings which are going to reduce the flexion and add some stiffness to the panhard bar. The type of bushing is important to consider because it's going to play a role in ride quality and NBH. At the end of the day, you do want more rigidity in these areas so you stop movement, but a lot of people work on straddling the line between stopping enough movement to create better handling but not stopping so much movement that it makes for a miserable ride board. Like I mentioned a little earlier, the panhard bar is a weak point in the factory chassis because it allows for a lot of movement in the rear. The J&M aftermarket replacement works to stiffen up the rear end by allowing for less deflection. Adding a panhard bar like this will give support and extra chassis rigidity as well, which will improve traction and handling. 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 models. It will help with traction and handling by itself, but keep in mind that there isn't just one part that will fix all the traction and handling issues, but a good combination of upgrades can totally change the 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 over $100, which is less expensive than a lot of other options that are available that offer different features. Like I said earlier, you can always go with a non-adjustable which will cost less, but I wouldn't recommend that route if you're planning on lowering your car. The install for this panhard bar does require a little bit of knowledge, so I'm to going to call it a three out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and it will take about two hours to complete. If you tackle this install yourself, you'll 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 but they're easy to remove. The factory is held in by two bolts, but you need to loosen the panhard bar support brace in order to get the 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 it is an adjustable part, you will want to make sure that it's the same length as the factory bar before you install it. The actual install of the new bar will be the same as the removal of the factory bar. Once the bar is installed, it will 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 J&M Panhard Bar has a steel construction, it's on-car adjustable, and it offers support and rigidity where the factory components are known to be weak. It's a great option for lowered cars and will work to improve traction and handling, especially in the corners, therefore tightening up the rear end. You can check it out more online, along with all your other rear suspension upgrade options right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improves Handling. Eliminate the unwanted flex and twist commonly found with the poorly designed factory panhard bar. The J&M Mustang 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.

    On Car Adjustable. You can easily fine tune your suspension with the Panhard bar installed on your mustang just by turning a wrench, no need to remove it to make adjustments.

    Superior Construction. This J&M tubular adjustable steel panhard rod is manufactured from high strength 1.25" outer diameter steel tubing making it extremely strong. The panhard rod adjuster is forged from 4340 Chrome-Moly steel and features formed rolled threads (not cut threads like the competition) it is then clear zinc plated and heat treated for additional strength.

    Greaseable. The included grease fittings allow for easy on car maintenance of the highly durable energy suspension polyurethane bushings.

    Application. This J&M On-car Adjustable Steel Panhard Rod is designed to fit all 2005-2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500.

    Benefits for a stock height car? What benefits,if any, would you see on a car that has not been lowered?

    • It gives you the ability to 'center' the rearend in your car. I have had many Mustangs over the years and almost everyone of them the rearend wasn't centered exactly. You can really notice this when you run larger than stock wheels and tires. On one side you will have clearance issues and the other side you won't. With this bar you can make sure the rear is in the dead center of your car.

    Ok, how do you adjust it? I've installed it but I run out of adjustment before the car is centered? Any help would be great!

    Chip58

    • The jam nuts should not be tightened down once partly installed, and so you should be able to crawl under the car and twist the panhard bar to adjust your Mustang’s body over the axle. It will take very little effort, and can be accomplished by hand. Ultimately, you want to center the body perfectly over the axle. To check to ensure the body of the car is properly centered, you’ll need to measure each side after you turn the panhard bar a few rounds. Since the middle of my sidewalls of my tires will poke out from the quarter panel just slightly when I’m finished, I found something to make a straight edge, made sure it rested properly on the tire’s sidewall at the top and bottom, and then used a tape measure to check each side. For narrower wheels and tires, you can simply tape a string and weight (to make a plumb-bob) as a reference point to measure from.

    Does this panhard require the bushings to be greased? I noticed the customer installation guide was for the aluminum J&M Panhard bar, however, this steel version comes pre-assembled. Are the bushing greased and is it ready to be installed out of the box?

    Huskerdude

    • They do not come greased! But it's an easy thing to do. Just take the bushing out of the panhard bar ends and grease them. They're in there tight so I found the best way to get them out was to hook up a grease gun and pump some grease in and the bushings will push out, then you can pull them out and grease them evenly. To reassemble, take the grease zerk nipple out with a small socket, and push them back together. Reinstall the grease zerk nipple and repeat on the other side. Make sure you are using a lithum based grease.

      This is a necessity if lowering your car

      Easy to install, was a bit tight getting the old one out and this one back in place, but I would HIGHLY suggest a single adjustable over any double adjustable style... once in car, it's easy to tweak. Plus this one has grease fittings.

      YOU NEED THIS!

      If you plan on lowering your mustang, YOU NEED THIS. This bar was very easy to install and the fitment was spot on. Adjustment is very easy, without the need of an expensive lift and allowed me to dial in the rear end within minutes. Immediately after install, the car felt more responsive and more stable in cornering and it did not add any noticeable noise, vibration or harshness to the ride. I love having the ability to grease the bushings and the placement of the grease fittings is perfect and easy to access. The quality and finish on this bar is top notch and looks right at home underneath the car. By far worth every penny and a bargain compared to some other brands on the market!!!

      It barks just as much as it bites

      Went in easy, and was able to adjust the rear end pretty close to center which meant minimum inputs and adjustments for the alignment. You will need a grease gun to add grease, and should also lube up the polyurethane bushing on each end as I am pretty sure this is what's cause the barking/squeaking sound I'm getting when the rear end passes over bumps.

      Top notch

      Bought this along with the SR lowering springs to realign the axle. It shifted over to the drivers side almost an inch after dropping it. Installed would be the most simple related thing ever, if it wasn’t for how crazy tight the new bushing are sliding into the panhard bar brackets. I had to lube everything up real good with PB blaster, and bang it into place with a block of wood and a hammer. Adjusting the bar was the most difficult part of the install. It’s tight under the car laying on your back with two wrenches in your hands. I do not experience any new clunks or vibrations whatsoever after installing that many people have complained about. Everything is dead silent, great product

      Needed to center rear end after lowering, this worked great, easy install at my shop about 15min, but could be much longer in the driveway. Easy to adjust and get your rear end back in line. could not tell much in the performance. but did what I needed it to do, seems well made and should last. Cant see how the higher priced options would be any better.
