The panhard rod is responsible for locating the rear end side-to-side in the chassis. Factory panhard rods are made with small diametertubing and rubber bushings that allow deflection under load. BMR panhard rods are made from larger diameter 1.25", heavy wall DOM tubing and utilize spiral-fluted greaseable polyurethane bushings. The left-hand and right-hand thread on the adjuster allows easy "on-car" adjustment. Our CNC machined adjusters are made from 4130 chromoly and have rolled threads.
By nature, a panhard rod will alter rear end position as ride height changes. This makes it necesarry to use an adjustable panhard rod when lowering your vehicle as it allows you to re-center the rear end. Adjustable panhard rods also become a "must-have" part if you are trying to fit the widest tires possible in the wheelwell.
