Can you guys post pics of Passanger drop panhard mounts

I am about to pull my hair out trying to figure out how to mount my panhard bar on my YJ with a chevy front dana 60

My 2 bolt hole on top of the axle are stripped out and i dont want to use that mount anymore

Here is my old ghetto mount which did work but its ugly as F and not long enough.

Just looking for new ideas on the mount, ive been thinking about going to a HP ford 60 drivers drop but then i need to get a new Tcase and atals is 8 weeks out and i want his thing on the road now

What is your issue with doing it?

If it don't fit on top then offset it to the front or back.

Cool

Have you considered cutting the shock mount off, and rebuilding as one bracket? It would be a real pain in the ass to cut everything off but because the tube is so short that's about the only way to do it. You will have to offset towards the front of the axle so the bar will clear the diff, and re drill/tap the holes to a bigger size. I had some pix of one I built years ago, but I lost everything in the great computer crash of 2009. It was very similar to what you're doing, but the Jeep had a lot more lift. It was before the time of low CG, and there was a lot more room to work with.

The bracket was welded to the tube and bolted to the casting. The shock mount went straight up, and the panhard mount was bent out towards the front. Imagine a ballistic fab shock mount with an integrated mount for the panhard.

The short term fix would be to weld that plate to the housing. It can be TIGd on with stainless rod, as my front 60 housing will attest. I'm sure you can find a welder to do that for you.
