Default panhard rod..

so im going to be running 10.5 with 315s in the back and was told to get a panhard bar, i was looking on lm performance but there is so many non single or double adjustable and so on. was wondering what most guys are running for best fitment and overall quality seeing since there is a few brands and prices ranging from 99 to 200

I don't know alot about LM Performance but there are many different companies to choose from, BMR, UMI etc.. I would definitely opt for the adjustable version because if you are like most of us, later down the road you will be swapping rears and you will need it to properly align the car over the rearend and such.

I'd look at Founders Performance, I haven't found alot of information on there products, but out of what I could find none of it was bad.

^THIS! I just bought their Subframe Connectors, Non-Adjustable Lower Control Arms, and Non-Adjustable Panhard Bar not knowing my friend was going to give me his lower springs and shocks for my stock springs and shocks but besides not buying adjustable they fit perfect and I've had no issues and you can't beat the price.

You definitely want to get an adjustable panhard bar, especially if you plan to run bigger tires. Not only will an adj. phb align your rear but it will also help align your wheels which can be huge depending on which tire you plan to run. Some 315's run bigger than others which may rub against your wheel well. If this happens you'll need the bfh mod. Using an adj. phb will help prevent that

You need a PHB to run wider tires? I thought you only needed it when you lower your car. I ran 11 inch rims with 315's on my old TA with a stock PHB (all stock suspension actually) without any issues???

But if you must for whatever reason get a PHB... i vote you get a "on-car adjustable", brand of your choice... i went with UMI. You will never have to take it off to make changes, which is very nice.

Spohn rod-ended LCA's, PHBR, T/A and Drag Sway bar .... like them all, but BMR and UMI makes nice products as well. I bought Spohn only because of a vender's smokin' deal and free shipping at the time. I would have gone BMR or UMI if the deal was the same.

I am and they are top notch. If your serious about running 10.5s then get the DA with the Del Sphere pivot bearing ends like in the picture someone posted for you. Don't waste your money on something you can't fully adjust or Poly ends that still are going to flex under power.

I thought the same thing about the "10.5", but after re-reading the post a few times, I believe the OP means he is going to run a 10.5" wide wheel with a 315 not running in the 10.5's .... !

TA's can usually swing it but problems with larger tires and wheels is not unheard of so just to be safe, its recommended

At least in my opinion, here it is in a "nutshell" ... it sounds like you plan to run your car at the track ("Not in the 10s just yet but slowly working on it") so you will be making changes to improve your ET's, MPH's and 60's. Your 10-bolt will definitely come out at some point for an S60, 9" or 12" and you will be swapping the wheels for 15's and trying different tires and tire sizes (26's, 27's and/or 28's). You will want the front-to-rear and side-to-side adjustability of adjustable LCA's and PHBR and you should also be thinking about an adjustable T/A as well.

Yea after doing alot of research and continuing research right now i am focused on getting LT and Catback with a tune, doing supsension and getting everything right and then adding the power. I did it *** backwards on my rx7 and i regretted it. i had a missile that handled like **** and had bad brake fade after some good speed runs. So this time im doing it right. handling first then speed. My plan is PHB then mount my rims and tires then doing a torque arm LCAS sway bars shock tower brace and SFC's and start looking into a good brake package
