    Justin: What's up, everybody? I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I'm joined by Mr. RTR himself, Vaughn Gittin Jr. And together, we're going to be walking you through this RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Panhard Bar, available for all '05 to '14 Mustangs. Now, Vaughn, lay out to everybody at home what the purpose of a panhard bar does. Vaughn: Yeah, sure. Basically, the panhard locates the rear axle laterally in the car. It's what controls it from going side to side. You have your upper link and your two lowers that hold the axle to the car. Well, this controls it from going left to right. Justin: Cool. Now, what was the objective when designing the RTR Adjustable Panhard Bar? Vaughn: Yeah, we wanted to supply a panhard bar to our customers that would allow them to make sure the axle stayed centered under the car. When you lower the car, the axle actually shifts, so this allows you to bring it back to center. It's significantly strong, and we also added some pretty impressive bushing technology. First of all, the casing of our bushing is a forged piece that encapsulates our bushing, which is a dual-durometer bushing. One of the durometers is a bit softer to absorb NVH, and so it's not very harsh. And then, on the inside, we have a rigid bushing. It's about as close as you're going to get to having a rod end without the noise or the more harsh ride that it would achieve. Justin: So it's essentially best of both worlds as far as that. And it's non-greasable, right? Vaughn: No maintenance. Justin: No maintenance. Vaughn: Just put it on, and adjust it, and it's good to go. And the thing a lot of people don't know, when the engineers are building their cars from the factory, it's all about NVH. It's all about being built for the masses. A panhard actually significantly helps your handling. When you initially go to turn into a turn, all that energy goes to the rear. So the more that you have a bushing flex on the panhard, the more your axle moves before the car actually turns. So this significantly increases steering response. Justin: Very cool. Now, installation, guys, with this could not be easier. As you can see, there's really only two connection points here so a simple two-bolt install. It'll probably take you an hour if that. But the big thing here with this is, Vaughn, is just getting the alignment set up correctly. And obviously the best idea would be to take it to an alignment shop, get your thrust angle checked, make sure the rear axle is centered. Vaughn: Yep. Justin: But we actually showed you in a video that I did a little while back, a backyard mechanic. Basically make a crude little plumb bob setup, hang two washers from a string, make your measurements between each side of the wheel there, and then adjust it accordingly. Vaughn: Yeah, very easy. And this can be done on the car. It's just simple. Loosen these two nuts, turn the adjuster, and it'll move the axle left to right and get it dialed exactly where you want it. Justin: There you go. Lengthen or shorten it on the car, so it makes things super adjustable, super easy to use, and definitely a piece you'll want to look for for your lowered car. All right. So there you have it, guys. If you're looking to center your rear axle underneath your lowered Mustang, in addition to increasing your handling performance, well, then you have to check out the RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Panhard Bar for your S197 Mustang here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improves Handling Performance. Upgrade your S197 Mustangs suspension with a RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Panhard Rod to eliminate the unwanted flex and twist commonly found with the poorly designed factory panhard bar. The RTR Tactical Performance 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 performance.

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

    Superior Construction. Manufactured from tubular DOM steel tubing for superior strength and rigidity, this RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar is completed in a durable gray powder coat finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Forged Rod Ends. The forged rod ends included with this adjustable RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar are specifically engineered to house the patented MAX-C bushings which allows for maximum articulation, strength and durability of the bushing material.

    Max-C Bushings. MAX-C (Multi Axial Composite) bushings are made from a dual-durometer synthetic elastomer with a unique non-bonded bushing design that allows the inner reinforcement sleeve to redistribute loads throughout the cushion and bearing allowing for freedom of articulation while still reducing deflection for improved handling predictability.

    Grease Free Technology. The included Max-C bushings feature "Grease Free Technology" this is a process where a PTFE inner lining is bonded to the inner bore of the bushing during the casting process. The PTFE lining reduces friction, minimizes wear and eliminates noise. Because of this there is no need to lubricate the bushings during installation making these bushings grease and maintenance free.

    Application. This RTR Tactical Performance On-car Adjustable Panhard Rod is designed to fit 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models and is the perfect companion to a RTR Adjustable Panhard Bar Support Brace.

        Would it be smart to get Adjustable panhard bar because I am going with air suspension in the future?

        Is there a specific side each end should go on or is it irrelevant?

        • We would recommend installing this panhard bar with the adjustable portion towards the driver side of your Mustang.

        Will this work with 2013 GT convertible

        • The RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar - Adjustable (05-14 All) is compatible with both coupe and convertible 2005-2014 Mustangs.

        Is it normal for these bars to get loose from time to time? because my bar gets loose and makes this really loud clanking noise in the back and I’ve tightened it a couple times already which fixes the problem but it still gets loose.

        • The RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar or any panhard bar should not loosen over time. We would highly recommend applying a medium to high strength Loctite on the bolts to help keep them from backing out.

        Is the with of the panhard bar at the bushing where the bolts go the same as the factory panhard bar?

        • The width of the panhard bar will be the same length from the factory as it is here on the RTR Tactical Performance panhard bar.

            Painful Install.

            Everything about this panhard bar is quality and nice, but you really need to grease the bushings to get it in. It took me way too long to install, but it definitely serves its purpose. This part is basically a requirement if you are lowering the car more than 1 inch. Lowering WILL offset your axle, and buying this bar, adjusting it, and tightening it down will re-center and fix the rear axle of the car. Worth the money for the RTR one, would buy again 10/10

            Good job RTR!

            Panhard came in boxed well! That’s always an upside. Good weight on it, feels well made for sure! Installing was pretty straight forward only took me and a friend about an hour to get the old one off and new one on. Adjusting was a breeze! Now both rear wheels are even(finally!) I would definitely recommend this product.

            No more side to side

            This sturdy panhard bar from RTR is a very good mod. Especially when you drive a Stang for a daily and what that aweful side to side flexibility gone or at least reduce. All the other RTR suspension mods will help each other out. 10/10 only reason why I gave it a 4/5 was installation. Took awhile since bolts were seized

            Disappointed

            I thought I was going to be happy with this product, I had it installed back in 2016 when I lowered my car, and as off last week after installing 305’s on my Stang I wanted to adjust the axle in the rear because I was having rubbing issues. When I unlocked it and went to adjust the bar? IT WOULD NOT BUDGE!!! It was sooooo frustrating. I even used W40, and torched it and NOTHING! So unhappy with the way it didn’t budge, my axle is still off center due to the fact that the bar won’t let me adjust it.

            I purchased this along with the Ford performance lowering springs for my 13GT and together my car has transformed into a monster. It handles like a dream and corners like a go-cart and not a muscle car. Must buy if you’re looking to improve suspension/performance.

            A great addition...

            The RTR adjustable pan hard helped me center up the rear end of my stang. The tire was noticeably closer to the fender on one side before installation, and once adjusted the tires sit perfectly centered. The car is much better planted when you hit the gas now! And no tire rub on either side now. Great piece, heavy duty and well made.
