anyone know where a 2.5"-4" panhard drop bracket can be found 4 sale.. tried all round this damn province and they are only offered in the lift kits, and trail disaster was the only one who had them seperately but discontinued making/selling them as singles starting this year.. what bullshit.

I do not know the dimensions, i do know where the bolt is in that picture, the length after that should be 2.5 - 3" below that point. i'll take some measurements tomorrow ill rip the bar out and take a peak.. heres a pic of what it looks like installed.

that things fawking scary, drop bracket off a factory stamped one?, why not just make a completely new track bar mount?(from the frame up, not just some weak ass bolt on thing) that stock one doesnt look very strong, hope you dont plan on beatin your junk

i had one on my old runner and beat the livin piss out of it and never actually broke the mount before, pan hard is a different story.. and yes if i actually had the time id just say fuck the coils and cut it all out and slap some springs in.

not saying ditch the coils, id never do that, but why not build a complete bracket off the frame, rather than adding more leverage to the weak looking stock bracket? just my thoughts

4sure, for a temp solution and with the amount of free time i got these days imma have to stick with the bracket on the weak junk stock hanger, until it breaks than maybe something will have to be fab'd up.
