Re: has anyone made a diy panhard bar?
The broken shock tower was due to a roll. A pan hard bar isnt that hard to do so long as you have the ability to build one. A machine shop with a nice milling machine makes it very easy.
You basically need a couple Heim joints, a piece of C channel or box steel, something for a bar, I used a piece of DOM chromoly steel pipe threaded at both ends for the Heim joint. The basic secret is to mount the bar on the passenger side to the axle, and to the frame on the drivers side. You want the bar to hang down enough from the frame to get it parellel to the axle, but not interfier with suspension uptravel.
Thats the basics, check out the other articles.
