Product Reviews for 2005-14 Mustang BMR Panhard Rod, Chrome Moly, Double Adjustable, Rod Ends
A Panhard rod is a suspension link that both locates the lateral
position of the rear axle housing and controls side-to-side movement.
Factory S197 Mustang Panhard rods are made from weak U-shaped stamped
steel with soft rubber bushings that allow excessive deflection under
load. BMR Suspensionís MPHR012 Panhard rod is made 1.25-inch,
0.095-inch wall chrome-moly steel tubing with TIG-welded chrome-moly
tube adapters. The MPHR012 features zinc-plated, X-series,
heat-treated, chrome-moly, self-lubricating, Teflon-lined rod ends. It
also features 304 stainless steel, custom designed rod end spacers.
Suspension designed the MPHR012 to work well for street performance,
drag race, and road race applications. The heavy-duty construction
eliminated the deflection seen in stamped-steel Panhard rods. Other
Panhard rods on the market include rubber or polyurethane bushings that
will deflect under heavy loads. The heavy-duty rod ends and stainless
steel spacers of the MPHR012 eliminates bushing deflection, giving you
much-improved, repeatable handling characteristics on the street,
starting line, or in aggressive corners. The rod ends make the MPHR012
double adjustable, so all adjustments can be made on the car without
removing the Panhard rod. This allows for fine-tuning and bind-free
suspension articulation needed for superior handling. The all-steel
design will increase NVH, so the MPHR012 is not the right Panhard rod
for everyone. However, this is the perfect Panhard rod for the
enthusiast that requires maximum performance from the suspension. When
performance is a must, rely on BMR Suspension!
Suspensionís MPHR012 on-car-adjustable Panhard rod is available in
black hammertone and red powdercoat for long-lasting good looks.
Proudly made in the U.S.A.

sides. This product is recommended when low cost is the primary
consideration. The PHR006 is on-car adjustable and
polyurethane bushings on both sides. This product is the most popular
S197 Panhard rod.
