Lateral stability on the front end of coil sprung Land Rover Discovery II vehicles fitted with live axles is controlled by a tie rod called a panhard rod. This is fitted between the front axle and the chassis, typically mounted in parallel with the drag link connecting the steering box to the axle. When live axle vehicles such as these are lifted the axle is pulled off center due to the fixed length of the panhard rod.
Terrafirma adjustable panhard pods allow the axle to be adjusted back to center, restoring the steering geometry. These rods are made from 30mm diameter, 5mm wall thickness, high tensile steel tube with a 20mm precision machined-threaded adjuster with lock nut part way along its length. Terrafirma panhard pods are supplied complete with polyurethane bushes ready to fit.
Watch Doug, our Land Rover Master Technician, in Part Five (Extra) of our video how-to series, as he removes and replaces the standard panhard rod and steering rod assemblies on our project D2. Doug then upgrades with and installs Terrafirma all-steel, heavy-duty models, designed to withstand the stresses of off-roading. Questions about this video?
