    Looking for advice from the gourou's out there

    I put a superior 3 in lift kit in and all sorts of wierd things are happening but first my panhard is at full adjustment and I still need about half an inch to line with chassis, I rang superior and they can't explain it espeicaily with having a 3 inch lift I should be winding the panhard the other way, they did suggest taking one of the lock nuts out but that did'nt work the only thing that I can see is cutting the new bar down to get more adjustment

    any chance you can upload a pic of your panhards etc? pics tell a thousand words, might be something super obvious.

    All front Panhard rods have a curve in them whether it be GQ or gu. Is the rear one straight?

    Got any pics? Honestly, cutting the bar down is stupid. You've done something wrong .

    Also, how did you go with the pinion angle

    Can you provide links to the exact ones you bought? If the rod are adjusted all the way in they would be too long that means. So you might have gotten a longer bar to suit larger lift than what you have?
    Just thinking out aloud here....

    Panhard between GU and GQ are interchangeable though. I have a GQ panhard on mine with GU diffs and it is fine.
