Has anyone here ever installed a panhard bar on a early mustang? Is there room for the bar and tailpipes?
Who sells kits?

You may have to lose the tailpipes, Griggs makes panhards, or even better, a watts link. Remember the panhard has only one attach point to the chassis, so the axle moves through an arc, the watts link gives you a linear path for the axle, but requires more work on installation.

Watts Link:

I intstalled a panard bar on my '69 Mach 1 a few years back.
It was when I worked in a shop and had the tools to do it though. We made it from scratch. Basically I took measurements from the axle across and up to the left rear fram rail. There was just enough room behind the tank and under the tail pipe to squeeze it through. I then made and welded brakets in place on the fram and the axle. The rod itself was a hollw tube trailing arm off of a chevy that I cut to length and welded threaded rod ends on it for adjustment and poly bushings. Turned out excellent and it only took a weekend to do. I wish I had diagrams of it now though.

*doh*

well yeah! Ok.. but you gotta let me have a few days to get that done. I dont own a digital camera and finding a place to get it lifted up well enough just to take some pics might turn out difficult. I dont work in a shop anymore so I cant just go do it anytime I want to now. Anyways, I'll get some pics taken of it and get them posted or mail them to ya as soon as I can.
