HELP Spidertrax panhard with RRO rear up forn kit?

We got almost everything installed today but had to bypass using the Panhard bar because there's no accomodation to move the perch forward enough for the RRO kit. Has anyone else installed the Panhard bar with the RRO kit? If so, did you redrill the Panhard bar perches and move everything forward? Will this offset the dynamics of ther Panhard bar? I'm stumped....

Yup, that's what I was gonna do. I just thought I'd ask here first since I know there's someone out there who's solved this problem...

Thats something I haven't considered. I'm going with the panhard and have the rear up front kit already. I wonder if relocating the spring pack bolt hole is all that is needed. I have seen both of these kits on the same vehicle before so I know it can be done.

If you are SPOA you will need to redrill the center hole on your upper plate for the panhard system. This allows the Ubolts to center over the axle. You'll want to drill a 9/16" hole to allow clrearance for the nut on the center pin.

if you have any questions on this, please feel free to email us direct.

This makes me curious.. I'm swapping to YJ's is the spidertrax panhard compatable with the TT YJ setup.. front axle moves foward and the YJ spring plates are wider. I plan to get a panhard at some point.

I just got off the phone with Spidertrax. They said to just drill out the perces so I can relocate the axles an inch forward. Sounds like a plan...

I drilled the springs instead of the perches. I feel it makes a cleaner job.

I'm not a fan of drilling springs. I feel it weakens them drastically. I may be wrong but peace of mind is invaluable!
