I have a 97 Action Chassis with a standard rear clip (I don't know what to call it, not underslung). I was just wondering if anybody has this type of rear clip that has a panhard bar. I'm looking for ways to mount it, but there is no frame to attach it on the driver's side. If anybody has a three link with this rear clip, I would appreciate some info on how it is mounted. Is it long, short, behind, or in front of the housing. thank you

IF YOUR CAR IS OVERSLUNG YOU WILL HAVE TO USE A J-BAR WITH A BRACKET THAT BOLTS TO THE FRONT OF THE 3RD MEMBER,OR YOU COULD USE AN OVER THE TOP OF THE 3RD MEMBER PANARD BAR WITH CLAMP ON PANARD BAR MOUNT(CLAMPS TO THE AXLE TUBE ON RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE REAREND.AVAILABLE FROM JET RACING(WWW.JET MOD.COM)

if you have an over slung tail use a clamp on mount for the rearend mounted on the right axle tube behind the rearend. when you have it figured out where to mount on the upper rail on the left side weld a 1 1/2 tube with a thickness of .120 and brace it to the right side upper rail and maybe some gussets in front and behind. use a sliding clamp on the tube to adjust angle. i have seen cars built this way.

Thanks customperformance, that's exactly what I was going to do, I am just a little apprehensive because of how much weight that will add though. I don't think the j-bar would work on my car, but I might think about that too.

there wont be much added weight and what little there is added is in the back where you need it anyway.
