Apologies if this was covered in the 13 previous pages. If so just point me to the post and I'll take a look. I have a OME 3 inch lift on my '97 FZJ80 and am currently using an adjustable rear panhard rod. I am going to install a Delta VS panhard lift soon but wanted to know if I needed to acquire an OEM Panhard rod or if I could adjust/shorten the current rod to fit to the new lift bracket. If I am able to use the adjustable panhard, how long is the OEM panhard rod? Is that even how long it should be Or is there a good reference someone cam point me to on how to properly adjust the length of the panhard once it is installed with the lift bracket so that it is the proper length?
After some searching did find some information on the lift bracket but no dimensions or recommendations on using OEM vs Adjustable rods.
What we've seen on stock vehicles in our shop is usually a difference of between .75" and 1.25". We average that out and call stock a 1" difference and go from there.“You will hear a number of different ways to measure how much lift you have for this or that, but for the Delta PHB, the best way to determine this is by crawling around on the floor. Get yourself a tape measure and measure from the floor to the center of the panhard bolt on the axle side and the center of the panhard bolt on the chassis side. Subtract axle side measurement from chassis side measurement, and that is your number. The idea is to get your panhard bar as flat as possible (your two measurements as close to the same as possible) withouthaving the axle side higher than the chassis side. So if you’re difference is 4-3/4” and you put a 5” PLB on there, you’re going to run the risk of having panhard/frame entanglement (this is bad-ish), depending on the rest of your setup (see above question list). Do you run 40” tires? Those tires are now your bumpstops so no biggy. Etc.”
is it fair to say that this is the size lift one has?im only assuming this as the track bar was probably perfectly parallel from the factory.
Email would be the preferred way to contact for order questions. That way all info is present, etc, and response time will likely be quicker.Hi I ordered a PHB on Saturday and was wondering if you guys have them in stock and ship quickly or if I should buckle down and prepare for some waiting?

That being said, we ran out of brackets last Thursday, but the next batch got back from powdercoat this morning and are getting packaged today and tomorrow. Anybody who ordered in the last two business days should have tracking numbers by Wednesday at the latest.
