If I increase my suspension from a 3" to 5" lift, I guess this will require the rear panhard rod to either to be modified or replaced by an adjustable one.
But will the front rod also need to be changed?

With the current 3" lift, the rear axle is pushing out maybe an inch in the one side but the front looks OK aligned.

Cheers

I have a 3" lift. Adjustable Ironman all round which is good for 2 - 7" of lift.

Hi mate going from 3" to 5" you will front & rear panhards
You will also need a front draglink
Longer brake lines

what he said, going from 3-4inch is when you need more adjustable stuff

depending on how cheap you want to get away with it... The tyres will be an inch or so further to the right without the adjustable panhards, You can cut and lengthen your original panhards to where it needs to be centre with your lift. you can still drive it fine without replacing them, same as draglink. But id get them both done as soon as you have the funds.

Brake lines were done when I went to 3" as the flex was enough to kill the stock lines.
Thanks for the advice guys - looks like there is only one way ahead :)
