Thumbs up Our Panhard / Trackbar brackets, Variations......

We make 4 different Panhard / Trackbar brackets and I get alot of questions as to why not just 2?

Here is the simple answer. You are either replacing a weak factory bracket that has broken and need something stronger and more versatile or you are swapping a new axle into your rig and need something that works better or is more adaptable.



We make 2 for the axle end and 2 for the frame end. In this pic, from the top left (going clockwise) we have the Axle Offset Bracket because 70-80% of the time you need the additional room on the axle. Next we have the Axle Centered Bracket for those of you that can work with one, both have 3 height adjustment positions. The lower right shows the Frame Outside Bracket for those of you going full width and to the left the Frame Inside bracket for the relatively stock width axle. The Frame brackets both have 2 mounting positions so matching up is easy.

Remember, Selection is always the key!

And we don't make many vehicle specific items, we make Fab Parts and I do understand the differences found in XJ's, I have 2 of them. The real problem with the XJ's Panhard is the reliance on a prebent bar, once bent they will just bend further. You need to first straighten both the panhard and the tierod. After you have done that take a look. Remove the existing panhard bracket and install the frame outside bracket and then replicate the new tierod angle using the axle offset bracket, it will not work on a stock rig but a trail rig has the room.

I always suggest to everyone to not focus on the problem but think about what would be ideal and the answer can become pretty apparent. This one isn't as easy as it sounds but it has been done by many. One of the biggest downfalls as I see it is always trying bolt on solutions, you cannot rely on a bolt the fix this problem. This is really a design problem Jeep decided was ok to run with. Remember all those threads talking about crappy, unsafe steering setups? They all start with bent tierods don't they!
