Removing panard bar

If you can fit under the car and still have room to swing a breaker bar or if you have air tools, you can remove the panhard bar with weight on the wheels. Even with the wheels raised slightly (~4.5 inches) it was difficult to torque the bolts to spec due to limited space.

Thats a nice write on SVT. And a nice panhard bar. MAKE SURE if you purchase an adjustable panhard bar, you do NOT purchase one with adjustable ENDS! You want the adjustable CENTER like the BMR one. The adjustable ends are nightmare. The bracket it fits up into on the passenger side is too deep and too narrow to get a socket or box end on, so you have to continually adjust it, install it, check it, remove it, adjust it, install it, check it... what a friggin nightmare.

 

That BMR one looks great... my Granatelli one... not so much.

 

BTW, I've done ALL MY MANY, MANY adjustments to my panhard bar with the rear raised via jack on the diff.

I installed the BMR adjustable panhard bar. Just backed the car up onto Rhino Ramps, unbolt the OEM bar, place it up against the BMR to match (adjust) the size, and install. Very simple 15 minute mod. Be sure to add lube to the fittings. I highly recommend the BMR, which is very easy to adjust once installed.

You can have the suspension fully loaded and install/remove the panhard. I adjusted mine with the suspension loaded, to more quickly set center. You do need to have all four wheels on blocks, so you can get under the car, and have normal suspension loading.

+1 on the BMR.

 

However, I am now going with the Fays2 Watts link for convertibles.

 

You may also consider the CHE upper panhard brace:

and the BMR panhard relocation bracket.

Did you pick different bushings/fittings? I see a box in your pictures.
