Panhard Bar kit for Mustangs greatly improves handling by adding a critical suspension component to better locate the rear axle. Also called the part that Ford forgot.
What is a Panhard Bar?
It is a suspension link that provides lateral (sideways) location of the rear axle.
Don't bother looking for it under your Mustang; Ford left them off the 1979-04 models.
Improves stability during cornering.
Improves straight-line stability.
Improves handling predictability.
Fewer steering wheel corrections are needed to stay on line.
Helps keep car straight during a drag race launch.
Stops the Mustang's rear-steer tendency.
Lowers the rear roll center.
Simpler and therefore less expensive than a Watts linkage.
Bolts-in, no welding required.
Clears stock tailpipes, and aftermarket tailpipes that follow the stock routing. Dynomax and Flowmaster tailpipes follow the stock routing.
Vertical adjustment of the rod's mounting accommodates different ride heights.
Very long rod minimizes sideways movement caused by the arc of the rod's motion.
PTFE-lined spherical rod ends precisely control movement with virtually no noise transmission.
Stout 6061-T6 aluminum rod is made from a custom extrusion, designed by MM for this application.
Rod ends are mounted in double shear for greatest strength and safety.
Chassis inserts allow proper tightening of mounting bolts without distorting the frame rail.
Low mounting of the rod significantly lowers the rear roll center, reducing the tendency of the inside rear tire to lift and unload during cornering.
Roll center is lower than what can be achieved with a Watts link.
While compatible with the standard T/A differential cover when properly installed, we recommend the new low-profile cover (listed for the S197 application) to ensure no interference.
Required before installation of the MM Torque-arm.
