It has always been common practice to reinforce Ford's 8.8" rearend with a stronger, cast rear cover. Unfortunately, with the 2011 GT models and 2011 + Shelby, the panhard rod prevents this. BMR has an easy solution. Our relocation bracket moves the drivers side of the panhard rod to the back of the OE mount, providing 1" of additional clearance. Installation is simple and rear end geometry remains unaffected.
