Correct panhard rod?

What is the correct length for the stock Panhard Rod for 1997 NAS D90?

Working on a friends '97 D90 SW. While following him noticed the front track appears offset (to the right?). The left front wheel is tucked under the fender and the right front wheel is extended beyond? It has that "dog tracking" look. (It may be offset to the left I can't see it right now?) Drives & brakes straight.

I lifted the front, put on jack stands, and removed the wheels to inspect. Suspected possible bent Panhard Rod (stock) but it appears ok. Center to center of Pandhard Rod was 32 3/8 inches. I checked another D90 (1994) and that Panhard rod was 32 1/8. Quarter inch difference in the two. I appears to have the incorrect part installed in the past? If part OK, may require an adjustable one to correct alignment?

Any one provide the correct measurement for the panhard rod on 1997 NAS 90 SW???

No sign of bent frame or serious damage /repair. Correct offset to stock allows. No wheels spacers. Distance from outside of coil spring to hub face is the same each side. Distance from knuckle to hub face is the same.

Thanks,
Jim

Weird. Normally an adjustable panhard is used to push the axle back to the passenger side, since as you lift s truck it will swing driver side.

Stock suspension ride height. Definitely shifted to the right (passenger) side.
