Ok
I het gedink om n pyp met so 5mm wand dinkte en so 400mm lank te kry wat oor die panhard pas dan word daar linksom en regsom skroefdraad aan die buite kant van die panhard (wat in die middel deur gesny is) gesny en dan ook aan die binnekant van die pyp.

Wat dink julle van so n idee?

GOOD DAY LADYS AND GENTS ! (yes we do have a few ladys for those of you that have not rememberd ! ) Your panhard rod , if it is solid , then why not cut it , thread the outside of one end , then machiene up a thick walled sleeve with thread in one end . Then press and weld the sleeve onto the unthreaded section of panhard rod . Add a pinch bolt to the sleeve to stop the thread from rattling and twisting . To adjust , remove one bush pin bolt , and turn one end 180 degrees at a time to get the desired length . The only problem is finding a good turner to machiene up the parts and do the press work and welding . This is perhaps a simpler and cheaper idea than a left and right thread as left hand threads are very expensive to cut for "one off jobs" . (you can't get one , two , or five cents any more , so that will have to be my ten cents worth !) CHEERS FOR NOW .
Can we get rid of STUPID DRIVERS before they kill us ?

Hello almal

Wat dink julle van dropboxes vir die panhards?
Dan hoef die panhard rod nie verleng te word nie en omdat hy dan weer hoerisontaal is gaan daar ook baie minder links, regs beweging van die aste wees wanneer oor hobbels gery word.

Die dropbox sal net n stut arm moet kry wat in dieselde rigting as die panhard loop maar net chassis toe. Die stut arm kan dalk verstelbare rod ends kry, vir fyn instel.

Ek dink dit is redelikke algemene praktyk op die Jeeps, en ek dink dit het baie voordele.

Ek weet net nie hoekom niemand ander dit op Patrols doen nie, MAW of dit dalk iewers stamp of iets?
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Dirks Patrol, has drop boxes and extended Panhard rods so I am sure he can be bought to donate for a weekend. Note that the drop box is specific to the lift you have installed. 2,4 or 6 inch.
