It should have came with one, if you still need one I have an extra one laying around since I upgraded to a watts link. I'd be happy to sell it to you.

I'm only going to have it for a few months till i upgrade to watts link. Money is restricting me from getting a few upgrades.

Correct, parallel to the axle and the ground at ride height. But KP suggest 7* off the axle, which is the main reason everyone "has to" get their watts link.

I'd weld the panhard mount to the frame. The frame will crack at the panhard mount if you don't.

Well I am already using the notch bolts to hold it in, so its aleady parallel with the rear end, and I am also already on the 7/8" max exposed thread on the heim joint... I dont want to go past that and end up breaking the heim joint...

Yeah I know, if I adjust it anymore the threads on the heim joint are going to exceed the recommended 7/8" on KP's instructions.

i guess the best thingto do is unweld it from teh axle and air the truck out. center teh axle and set the threads to center on the panhard. then weld it back on
