Adjustable Panhard Rod - Rear
Complete with Spherical Bushing
- Nissan Patrol GU Series 2 / 3 / 4 inc. Swivel Bushing Rubber
An absolute Necessity on all raised 4WDs is the Adjustable Panhard Rod. Designed to correct axle alignment, the fitment of an Adjustable Panhard rod eliminates potential contact between tyre & body & improves handling issues on vehicles lifted 2" & above.
All Roadsafe Adjustable Panhard Rods are heavy duty, single thread off car adjustable & come complete with bushings & steering damper mounting brackets where applicable.
Revised Bushing Design now standard in APR004R, APR005, APR028 & APR028. On lifted Patrols there was occasion where the standard OE or aftermarket bushings appeared to "walk out" of the genuine or aftermarket panhards. In an effort to elimiate this Raodasfe have designed a new bushing to suit. Featuring a solid shell design found in other OE applications provides full surface area contact with the panhard bushing appertures, the rubber is now bonded into position to absorb side loads at varied lift heights, aiding to minimise the "walking" effect.
The majority of Roadsafe Adjustable Panhards now come standard with high flex rubber bushings. This has been a gradual change based on customer demand. Our Roadsafe rubber bushings bring the factory ride feel to the upgraded replacement Adjustable Panhard rods. The high flex Roadsafe rubber bushings offer less noise, vibration & harshness over the polyurethane bushings for panhard applications.
Roadsafe Rubber & Urethane bushings are the same dimensions as the factory original, so all rods are manufactured to factory bush specifications. Bushing replacement if required is easy, just use the factory original or aftermarket.
Design changes over time have seen the implementation of double nuts for extra security, 150mm of adjustment to suit 2-6" lifts & fine 2.0mm pitch thread for finer adjustability.
Roadsafe 4WDs Adjustable Panhard Rods are one of the few on the market that are manufactured from solid bar as standard, as well as boasting an increase in the outside diameter. It's only a matter of time for any vehicle that is used for serious off-road work that the factory panhard will break or bend. This will cause the body of the vehicle to move uncontrolled off centre to the chassis, damaging fuel filler lines, steering linkages & much more!
At 30-33mm OD Solid for the Patrol, Roadsafe Panhard Rods are much heavier duty than factory original.
Tech Tip: Where the Panhard on Patrols is secured using a cupped washer on the Diff Mount - Please ensure the washer faces outwards so it "cups" away from the diff. Do noy have the cup facing inwards.
Also available APRGUPAK containing both Front & Rear Panhard Rods & 2x Panhard Washers.
