Since the panhard rod is responsible for keeping the rear end centered in the chassis, their is a significant load placed on the panhard rod mounts during cornering. Due to this load, Ford reinforced the mount with a vertical brace that parallels the panhard rod. Unfortunately this brace is little more than stamped, light gauge metal and does little for reinforcement. The BMR boxed tube support reinforces this critical mount to prevent deflection and can be easily installed in less than 1 hour. The passenger side has a slight bend for additional exhaust clearance.
