Those panhards need to be level mate. If its off even as much as 3 degrees, your going to pull pretty hard to one side or the other.

Level? I've never heard that it has to be level, but I've heard it needs to be the same length and at the same angle as the draglink...

to be the most effective they should be as close to level as you can make it.. but in the case of big lifted trucks, like this one, its not really possible.


its also supposed to be mounted at axle center line, that's not gonna happen either is it?

You can actually hack out the engine crossmember and re-fab on, and do some tube massaging to make it relatively flat if you HAD to... I'm lookin into this option right now on my truck...

Thats to keep it even with the steering, but from an actual suspension design aspect you want it level.

Some guys go to great lengths to achieve this.
