    Has anyone used a Panhard Rod Relocation Bracket before on a 13 or 14 with the Bilstein Shocks? We ran into a problem with it hitting the shock expansion chamber. It is a BMR bracket and Panhard Rod.

    This is the girdle clearance without the relocation bracket installed.

    I do not recall having an issue. Will centering the axle give you any clearance?

    Just ended up cutting and welding the bracket. BMR really needs to make it not extend so far for no reason.

    When I lowered mine, I didn't use a relocation bracket on panhard. Been this way going on 3 years with no problems. Eibach/ BMR suspension.

    How did changing the length of the mounting arms move the bracket away from the shock?

    Did you notice this note on BMR's website?

    He has an aftermarket diff cover and wasn't comfortable with the bar to cover clearance.

    Cutting the tabs and putting a slight bend where it bolts to the lower shock bolt.

    I did not notice that before on their website snoopy.
