(All models)

UMI’s 3rd and 4th Generation GM F-body competition panhard bar lowering and leveling kit is designed to increase over-the-axle exhaust pipe clearance and also lower and level the Panhard bar. This competition proven setup includes a weld-in reinforcement plate for the factory panhard bar mount as well as an adjustable strut to prevent lateral movement of the bracket system. Laser cut adjustment slots permit lowering and leveling the PHB for roll center height and performance tuning. This kit gives much of the performance of a Watts Link with easier installation and adjustment and at a lower price point. Available in UMI red or gloss black powder coat. 100% designed, manufactured and raced with pride in the USA.

Installation Notes: UMI's panhard bar lowering and leveling kit requires at least 1.5 inches between the sway bar and axle tube. This distance can be achieved by using UMI's P/N 2244-275 sway bar bracket kit or equivalent. Please check install pictures provided before purchasing, see image below for additional clarification. Panhard bar lowering and leveling kit must be used with an adjustable panhard bar.

  • For use with factory axle only.
  • Lowers rear roll center height 1-3/4” to 4” in 7/16” increments.

Tech tips:
  • Factory location is “too high” for performance use.
  • Lowering the panhard bar prevents mid-corner oversteer.
  • Raising the panhard bar enhances mid-corner rotation.
