Setting up the ADD Adjustable Panhard Bar
« on: April 25, 2017, 02:50:05 PM »
Toasty decided to R&R his rear suspension today. He was making an instructional video for everyone but unfortunately he forgot to make sure he had space on his SD card and only got the first 17 minutes (Job Takes 40 minutes). But here's a couple pics for those who can't get the alignment shop to set their rear track.
1. Hang something straight off the frame (tape a ruler to it or something) then measure both sides from the (undamaged) wheel bead.
2.Subtract half of the difference of the longer side by rotating the link. Double check both sides are equal then tighten the jamb nut. DONE!

 I'll whip up another video once Kevin gets his trailing arms rebuilt or when Josh gets his ready. Thanks for posting this up, I really want people to see how easy the rear suspension is to rebuild.

Got my trailing arm sibi bushings in, new ADD 1.5" springs in as well as the new ADD pan hard bar. I must say that the pan hard bar was by far the easiest thing in the world to mount and then centering it took all of 5 more mins on the ground with a tape measure. Do your self a favor and get one of these things as soon as possible.
1999 Montero. 33x10.5x15 General X3's. 4.90's w/rear locker. Full armor. ADD idler arm. ADD 1.5" complete lift. Siberiean Bushings everywhere. 150W alternator with upgraded 4 AWG leads and grounds. 2nd Battery in the rear for camping stuffs to come.
