I've nvere personally seen the need for a panhard (unless yours is jacked) but I'd get all 4 arms if I were you.

I think I bought my nonadjustable arms from Infamouz after he changed his mind. You going to install these this time or should I start saving up? :poke:

Any time your lifting (or lowering) with suspension (body lift wouldnt effect), a fixed panhard is going to kick the axle off to one side. While it's effects handling wise probably aren't that noticable on a more off road application (quite noticable on a paved sporting application tho), there's a possibility it's going to cause rub issues either on the inside or outside. :safari:

LAME!

I'm aware of the mechanical issues. What I'm saying is that I'm lifted close to 5" in the rear (not counting body lift) and the offset at resting height is about an inch. Even on 35's I have no unexpected rubbing issues.

If I tweaked my stocker (or destroyed the bushings in it) I'd prolly pony up for one of these...

:Iagree: The tire being more offset should really only affect rubbing on a steering axle. On a rear axle how far the tires stick out will really only start to have a noticeable affect on rubbing when it sticks very far out (think full width axles on a jeep) and then in that case you would have less rubbing not more...

Not true. When the stick out further they can get into the lip of fender when before they would tuck inside fender lip.

I'm thinking more of cut fenders, where a fender lip is long gone.

Interested in pan hard bar, just making sure they are still being made seems like this thread has been quiet for a little while. After putting the body lift and 33's on this wekend i noticed that my rear axle seems to be offset about 1" to the passenger side never noticed it before.

I keep "almost" pulling the trigger on them, but keep running into unexpected little expenses that keep me pushing it back. Sadly these things aren't a priority when compared to the transmission and engine. Soon - I say!

I too noticed a problem with the website last week. Seems the website lost all of it's products. Appears fixed now.

Yes, we've got plenty!

We make them here, so even if we run out - there's always more in the pipeline being made.

Are the links working for you guys at this point?

They work for me?

Well, since nobody has posted a review or thoughts in awhile Ill add to this.

My Panhard had started to "Clunck/Pop" every once in awhile during right hand turns. I would loosen the lower bolt, lube, retighten and it would go away for a couple weeks but it was driving me batsh*t. That, and after being lifted I always hated the axle offset, yeah its not much but I still noticed it. SO, with the Black Friday sale I went ahead and ordered up the adjustable panhard bar.

Ordered Monday around 9am.....was on the truck by Wednesday at 7pm. This thing is NICE. The powdercoat is absolutely perfect, it was shipped super fast, AND I got a bunch of extra toolbox/garage stickers......who doesnt like stickers. Anyways, Truck tracks nice and straight and its a nice little peice of hardware. Nice product and customer service from MASSIVE.

Crappy cellphone pics, got it in Metallic Silver.

He needs to cut off that bent up piece of steel that's running along the bottom and limiting travel. :finger:
