This is kind of a followup on my order from LMPerformance.com which I bought the panhard bar relication kit.

Installation took less than an hour which included, but not limited to, finding jack, 1 jackstand, and trying to find my 2nd but couldnt so rigged up a stand out of those decorative bricks you use on gardens and walkways.

Jacked the rear end up and supported frame while you let the rear end hang down. 1 bolt on pass side, 3 bolts on driver's side for the upper bar, and 1 bolt from the lower bar. The new bracket bolts into place to relicate the new bar and old lower bar.

Very clear and easy to read instructions. I would highly suggest buying the lower bar as well to make a clean install. The old stock bar looks like garbage when matched with the new upper. If you do reuse your old lower, reuse your bolt and nut, as the supplied bolt and lock nut is thicker and to be used with a new lower. (its in the instructions, but easy to miss)

Id rate this job on a scale from 1-10(10 being 'relocate job to a dealer') a 2. Since you will need to chock your front wheels and lower your rear end while jacks support the frame.

The only difference now is that when I bottom out, it doesnt bash my exhaust pipes. No pics.. winters here and I didnt snap any durring the summer. You really cant even tell its there unless you get real low.

The relocated panhard lets me run true duals without my pipes being crushed. My stock exhaust was crushed from bottoming out with my stock bar.

Before some misinformation gets spread about this part..

THE PANHARD RELOCATION BRACKET IS NOT A SUSPENSION OR HANDLING MODIFICATION

Directly from UMI's site..
This panhard bar relocation kit is designed to replace the upper panhard rod support while relocating the lower panhard bar. By doing so, this offers enough room to run up to a 3” true dual exhaust system over the passenger side axle. Supplied with this kit is a new heavy duty upper panhard bar support, CNC machined mounting brackets and all needed grade 10.9 hardware. Relocation kit will work with the factory panhard bar and all aftermarket panhard bars.
