I have been running the long bar behind for many years. I place the mount on the rear end housing as far inboard (by the third member) along the tube as I can. I place th mount where the tube meets the flare for the center housing. I start with the mount on the rear end tube so the heim is at the center line of the tube. I set the frame mount (left side of frame) with me in the car, and usually 2-3" higher than the mount on the rear end. This is a very neutral setting for you to start with. Adjust the whole bar up or down depending on if you want to tighten or loosen the car mid-turn. Adjust the angle of the bar if you need more or less side bite. More angle= More sidebite. Hope this helps. It should get you close to start with.

It is not in the center. It is as far in board along the tube as I can get it until the tube connects with the center section housing. This will still be about 12"-15" to the right of center. I don't have my set notes here at work, but think the bar (from center of heim to heim) is about 24".

Chad thanks for the reply I think i might have it with the bar at 24 inches and 15 inches past the third member i will have take a look at the rear end and i probably can see it. As far the mount on the rearend it center of the axle as far as height how low or high should the pan-hard bar mount be on the rearend

The bolt that goes through the heim for the panhard bar into the rear end mount should at the center of the axle tube. This is the height at the rear end mount. The frame mount on the left side of the frame should be 2-3" higher than the rear end mount (ofter referred to as "split"). I set my frame mount with me in the car, but what ever you do, make sure you do it the same way everytime so when you make adjustments, you know where your baseline is at.

The end of last summer, I switched to panhard bar behind, as far in on rr axle tube. The main reason is our cars have tremendous amounts of side bite and were really tearing up j-bar mounts on center section. Reason number two, It save a few minutes if you need to make a gear change. I have found it to be stronger so far.
