9. This shot details the new Panhard-bar bracket brace in the foreground. Blurred but still visible in the background is the new Panhard-bar drop bracket and upper end of the new aluminum Panhard bar. We loved this part of the kit because it features two top-of-the-line FK forged 3/4-inch rod ends, Grade-8 mounting hardware and flared holes for added strength. The design is all business with its triangulated arrangement, and confidence-inspiring with its oversized mounting bolts. This brace helps distribute stress loads to the vehicle's massive under-engine crossmember.
