Can I replace Panhard with car on ground?

Hi all!
From my previous post you may know that my misaligned front axle is probably due to a bent Panhard Rod. I took your advice and purchased an adjustablt panhard rod from Rovertym.
$185 later, I'd like to save some money and install it myself before I take it in for alignment.

Car I simpley remove and install the new panhard rod with the car on the ground (NO jackstands or lift)? I'm concerend that the body could shift over if i do...OUCH!!!!
Thanks

yes... I have done it before. I replaced my stock one with an adjustable one. I aligned the holes from the OEM one and put it on. Not too hard. With yours being misaligned, I would have a deadblow hammer available.

Your mount was bent, did you replace it? The box looked off too. It's one piece and I hope you replaced it as the adjustable panhard will not adjust shorter that far.

yes, have a friend or two handy to help get it lined up if it shifts a bit. You can always use your winch if you have one too.

I've done it on the grass before. Like huck1974 said, one side threads towards the rear of the truck and the other towards the front. The one on the driver's side is the one that I had more trouble getting aligned. If you have a good hydralic jack under the driver's door, you can adjust it so the holes are spot on. An impact wrench later and you're golden. The hardest part is getting the rest of the suspension out of the way so that you can get tools on the nuts n bolts, but a little patience and some adjustment of the jack and you should be good to go.
