Im starting a little project and a panhard bar is out for our trucks but seems to be made for another car model also. (measured a buddys car today at work) Im going to do some final measurements tonight from center bolt to center bolt and then I think I can order the panhard bar from the company and test it out for you guys. Both sides are adjustable. If this falls thru would get rid of that garbage stamped panhard bar we have on the truck now and replace it with a 1.25 inch bar

Any price info?

I thought about making one for my truck, but just don't have the time to take the stock one off for measurement.

Norcal:are you trying upgrade the Pan-hard bar to bring something adjustable to the table for you guy's that are "slammed" ???
Cause for a "general" mod for most of the TBSS's I don't see the point after all it's not like the sway-bar mod which is a definite performance mod.

Adjustable panhard bar will help the lowered guys also because rear end gets offset. Also ive seen on many stock ones that rear end is not centered so the panhard bar will take care of that.

Agreed...That's why I was bringing up the point...if your lowered this is a must... but if your not and your TBSS's is dog tracking you have an alignment problem and that should be addressed before you think of doing this

some trucks (liek the colorado) the rear ends are offset even on stock trucks. Ive seen some sit center while others 3/8 to 1/2 inch off. I measured it all up tonight and going to talk to a few people tomorrow.

I swear i seen these bars for the trailblazer on ebay a while back, i just remember they were red with the adjustments in the middle.
I didn't know what the point was for them back then so never really looked in to it.


:dunno:

Those are for the lower control arms which change pinion angle. The pan hard bar will adjust the rear end in location to center of the fenderwells.

so you guys know what it does,

Lakewood's new adjustable panhard rods are engineered to keep the rear axle centered and aligned under severe cornering conditions. Manufactured from thick-wall steel tubing to prevent flex and bending, they feature durable polyurethane bushings and steel sleeves for added stability. The adjustable ends allow precise location of the axle in relation to the chassis, and compensate for altered ride heights. Finished in a corrosive-resistant black powdercoat finish, they come complete with grease fittings for easy lubrication.
