3. Mounting the Panhard bar to the frame and the axle also requires installing the steering box, draglink, and tie rod simultaneously. Try to run the Panhard bar and draglink on the same slope and attach in nearly identical points along the frame and axle. This way they move along the same arc and reduce bumpsteer. Bumpsteer occurs when the movement of the suspension causes the front wheel to turn due to improper geometry. Since the draglink attaches to the tie rod, I made the Panhard axle mount behind it when the wheels are pointing forward.
