If you ever wanna set your panhard setup lemme know. Mine runs great down the road in my opinion but with the bushings still being only a few months old I don't seeing it last forever. The panhard can increase the turning radius (if setup properly) because it prevents the shackles/springs from "soaking" up the movement of your drag link from the frame to the axle. I run delrin bushings from my missing links to chassis bushings and it keeps the shackles from soaking up the steering and "wandering".

Gecko and I did panhards about the same time. Amazing improvement. On and off road. And yes, he meant to say decrease turning radius.

Sorry. I meant it will decrease. You will turn a tighter turn.

Got 2 new shoes yesterday. Sipped too. Now I got 5 new tires give or take a millimeter. $520 out the door for 2. Ouch, but I knew it would cost that much. They matched TireRack's price with shipping.

I am picking up my distributor cap and rotor today and should have it running again tomorrow hopefully unless something else is going on. It has been sitting all week and needs some attention to get finished up. I may just install the panhard and see how it turns out. I know it will help but just taking the leap and doing it is most of the issue. I would still like to rhinoline/bedline the entire truck in gray or white. I think that would look pretty sweet. That might happen sometime next year but with a little one on the way the money is getting tight. Look for the little one out on the trail here in a couple years!
