Is the panhard bar adjustable enough for a boxed frame on the NBS? Or, do I need to shorten the bar a bit to compensate? TIA!
Since the frame is boxed you can modify the frame bracket that bolts to the frame, and make it a weld on bracket. You wount be able to access the bolts to install the nuts, so the bracket will need to be welded on.
As far as the bar length is concerned, we do offer the longest bar in the industry. When installed properly, the typical weld-in notch needs to be trimmed to allow the frame mount to slide forward into the notch. That way the bar will be as close to the diff. cover without hitting.
In your case, you'll need to modify that frame mount so that it can be located on the frame and welded on. This will allow you to keep the bar length as it is now, and not modify the bar.
If you have any questions please feel free to email, PM, or call us directly here at KP.
The frame isnt boxed yet, but thats what Im wanting to do when I do the install.If you run into tire clearance issues, or want to upgrade from the pan hard bar, then you can run our bolt-on Watts link kit. This system wount take any type of modifications, and it can be welded to the side of the boxed frame.
If you're interested in a Watts link kit let me know. I can offer you one at a discounted price that would be more then the normal 5% discount that we offer to GMFS members.
How long are you gonna be selling the 6 link and watts link for that pice???The pan hard mount is different from the Watts link mount. So if you weld the pan hard bar bracket on now, you'll need to remove it later on to get the Watts bracket in a similar location.
I can get you in on a special if you're interested in a 6 link with a Watts. Normally $1,729.35 but I can get you into a complete 6 link with Watts powdercoated for $1,445.00
If it's stricly a Watts link that you're looking for then I can also work you a deal right now. Normally $450 on the Watts, I was going to offer them to GMFS members with a a sale price of $390.00
Let me know if you're interested, or anyone else.
