Here is another installment of the #FairmontProject rear suspension upgrades. In this installment I go over my struggles installing a panhard bar from Maximum Motorsports. Most of those issues came from the fact that my Fairmont isn’t as straight as I would have liked it to be. I still get things sorted out in the end as you’ll see in the video.

That said, the video contains detailed information on how a panhard bar works, and how to install one onto a fox body Ford. In other words, if you’re doing this on a Mustang from 79-92 you’ll be following the same procedure. Or any other fox body for that matter.

Special thanks to Jack Hindley and Kolton Sinclaire for all their help. Link to my Panhard Bar: http://www.maximummotorsports.com/Panhard-Bar-1979-98-Mustang-P480.aspx
