    Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar Support Brace for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. A lot of times Panhard Bars are one the first places that people go to in order to tighten up the rear end of the '05 to '14 S197s and rightfully so, but at the same time, an aftermarket Panhard Bar can only do so much by itself. This Panhard Bar Support Brace from RTR gives structural support and adds rigidity to the foundation of the Panhard Bar in order to make it more effective. This makes a perfect option for those guys out there that are looking to improve handling. So 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. If the rear axle is allowed to move this way, you'll experience rear steer and your ability to corner will be greatly reduced, hence the need for a Panhard Bar, not to mention a centered rear. But like I said before, a Panhard Bar can only have so much improvement if you support it with only the factory parts. The RTR Panhard Bar Support Brace will stiffen the Panhard Bar mounting bracket for less deflection. This is important for the functioning of the Panhard Bar, because the mounting bracket is a weak and vulnerable point of the Panhard Bar assembly when it's under load during cornering. This support brace will give some extra chassis rigidity as well. The first thing that I noticed about this brace was how beefy it is. All of RTR's Tactical line is really beefy stuff and this brace is right in line with that. This makes for a definite upgrade over the factory brace. The factory brace can actually be flexed by hand, and that's just not happening with this RTR brace. This brace is made from a heavy duty boxed steel tubing, which is where it gets its strength from. It's also powder coated this nice gray, and while you won't necessarily see the color of the brace, the powder will give it some corrosion resistance, and that's only going to benefit an under car suspension component. As far as price, a Panhard Bar Support Brace isn't necessarily expensive. This brace cost under $100 and it pairs perfectly with RTR's Panhard Bar, although you don't necessarily need to have an RTR specific Panhard Bar. There are some other options on the site as far as braces and Panhard Bars go, but the RTR support brace is coming in in the middle of the pack as far as price. The install for this Panhard Bar Support Brace is luckily not difficult. It's a direct bolt-on replacement, which means that it'll just take the place of the factory brace without requiring any modification. You won't need any special tools to complete the install, just a few sockets and an extension or two, and a way to get the car up in the air high enough to work under it for about an hour or so. Going to call this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. The driver side of the brace requires you to back out two bolts, and there's one bolt on the passenger side. You won't need to drop anything to get these bolts out, and once the bolts are removed, the brace just drops out. It can be easier to drop the passenger side of the brace first, and it might make it easier to loosen the 18 millimeter bolt on the Panhard Bar itself, because that just helps sometimes. Just like the same way the factory brace came out, it might be easier to install the passenger side bolt of the new brace first, but don't tighten it down all the way. Then it's just the two bolts on the driver side and those can be made tight. The passenger side then just needs to be tightened down and this means both the brace and if you loosen the bolt in the Panhard Bar itself. Wrapping things up here, the RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar Support Brace offers support to the Panhard Bar where the factory components are normally very weak. This support will reduce deflection and flex and therefore tighten up the rear end, allowing the Panhard Bar to function at a top level. It's made from a heavy duty box-steel design and it's very easy to install. You can check it out more online, along with more of the other RTR tactical performance options right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Reinforces Panhard Bar. Get rid of that wimpy stock light gauge stamped metal brace Ford installs with their factory Panhard Bar and replace it with a heavy duty RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar Support Brace for additional strength to prevent deflection under load.

    Boxed Steel Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty boxed steel tubing for superior strength, this RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar Support Brace is completed in an attractive gray powder coat finish for long lasting durability and impressive good looks.

    Application. This RTR Tactical Performance Panhard Bar Support Brace is designed to fit all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models and is the perfect companion to a RTR Adjustable Panhard Bar. Not intended for use with Watts Linkage.

            Support your rear

            Simple to install if you already have the panhard out. Only 3 bolts and some grease. Way beefier than the stock brace. It also allows more clearance for the exhaust. I can’t say I notice a huge difference in handling but it can’t hurt.

            Superior item.

            This is an excellent upgrade to the stock brace. It really cuts down the rear end sway. Easy installation, fits exactly like the stock brace, no alignment needed afterward.

            Can’t tell much of a difference as far as performance. Also my left exhaust pipe is sitting on it and now it makes the most annoying rattling sound.

            RTR Brace

            This brace I bought with the RTR Panhard Bar and they really do work together to help firm up the rear end like it should be. Good products made by RTR.

            The installion was pretty easy and fast, same for the panhard bar. But to be honestly I don’t feel any different to the car or ride.

            Great companion to the SR panhard bar

            This support brace works well with the SR adjustable panhard bar I installed about a year ago. It is a nicer support than stock, and is much more stout in construction. I counted installation time here as part of the entire installation of the Eibach Pro System plus suspension kit. Actual time to install just the brace was about 10 minutes: remove bolts, take off brace, and install new one - done.

            Best $99 you can spend

            High quality piece to replace the SUPER-flimsy stock support brace. If you're going to upgrade the factory panhard bar to get your stang all centered up - do this as well... no regrets!

            good fit, good price

            very nice piece, install is a snap, upgrade the panhard bar while you are doing this,, and it is a simple install for both parts. the ends are angled, but the fit is perfect. am could not tell me if the ends were supposed to be angled,, so i returned one, and waited for another. the ends are angled, and it fits fine.

            No Comparison !

            The stock panhard bar brace is pretty pathetic. It's nothing more than a thin piece of stamped sheetmetal that you can literally twist with your hand. The RTR brace is built so much stronger that you cant compare. Everything about it was excellent, from the build quality to the fit and finish. This isn't a mod that I can say made a big seat of the pants difference in handling, but just knowing how much stronger this is versus the stock brace makes it a must have in my opinion.

            Good stuff

            I installed the panhard bar and support brace very nice upgrade works great my rear end was almost a half of an inch off at stock from the factory. And the original support brace from the factory you can actually Twist by hand that is not the case with the upgraded support brace I would recommend to anybody

            Replaced the flimsy stamped one. Nice upgrade tied everything in the rear end. The price was right and the quality is top notch. And it looks pretty good too!! So if your on the fence about just buy it you will not be disappointed 10 minute install..
