When you did your diff fluid change I understand the panhard bar has to be dropped out of the way. Did you guys just loosen the pass side
and let it drop? Also is it possible to do a panhard bar swap on ramps.

The one thing I noticed from the instructions in the factory manual is that the panhard rod fasteners are supposed to be one use only and they get torqued to 130 ft-lb which is more than my tq wrench. They are supposed to be torques with weight on the suspension. I did end up re using the bolts and went to 100 ft lb [tq wrench limit] plus a little more. May end up lowering car in the future and changing to an adjustable panhard rod at that time. If I do that I'll borrow a 130 + tq wrench and probably get new bolts.

moved a little and it takes a little finesse to get things back togeather. Thanks again.
