Arrow Panhard Kits and Components From Ruffstuff!

These are pretty straightforward and simple, all it takes is a quick look and you understand what you need to do and more importantly, what you need to order!

We start you with 48" of 1.5" x .25" wall DOM tubing, then we make you choose between an axle Centered or Offset Bracket, and finally you decide if it will mount on the frame Inside or Outside. The Brackets give you 5 choices of mounting height.

It comes with a set of our 7/8" x 3/4" 4130 Heat & Cryo treated Heims with Stainless Misalignment and Hex Head weld bungs. The Hex Head bungs give you very fine adjustment easily. We also include the Grade 8 bolts in the correct length so you don't have to spend your day searching for them.

Here is a pic with both bracket choices so you get an idea of how it goes together...

Any lift at all and you will need to adjust your Panhard, is yours even adjustable?

I should mention that some of you are running a panhard with leaf springs. It seems to have started with Toyotas but I see it spreading.

First off they are diametrically opposed in what they do and using both will cause undue wear & stress on both and eventually break one or both.

Secondly, the reason you are doing it is to track better on the road but if you go offroad you take it off. At least you are doing it right offroad. If you are not tracking well fix the issue, don't add something that will only destroy something else.

The issue could be one of several things. You could simply have worn out bushings in your springs. You could have sloppy springs. This could be as easy as no clamps, broken center pin, simply worn from rubbing against each other, or maybe your tires are simply too big for your suspension to handle on the road(too much balloon).

First fix the issue, these are for link suspensions, not a bad spring setup.

A simple way to tell if you have binding issues with your Panhard is:

When your rig is sitting there, not moving, and you turn the wheel and the drivers side lifts 1/2" to 2" you are binding on the panhard.
