    Hope Jeff doesn't mind, but here's a start. It's pretty easy and I'm pretty lazy, lol.

You will need to set the car down, jounce the suspension a bit to level it and then check your side to side clearances and adjust accordingly.

    First thing to do is remove the stock panhard. Then lay it out on the ground. Put the new one next to it and compare/measure the length (hole to hole). Loosen the jam nut on the adjustable and turn the short(er) end of the panhard so it matches the stock one. Install the new panhard. That'll start you out with a stock setup. If you're lowered then you'll have to do some extra measurements to center the rearend.

    At that point lower the car, shake it around a bit then let it settle. Now start measuring to square up and center the rearend.

    It's great how all the info on that site is over ten years old, yet still very helpful.

    Evertime I read it, it's like a blast from the past...I first discovered that site in '00 when I got my first LS1 Formula.

    Post up your impressions of it when you're done! I'm thinking of getting one of these myself.
