I got a quick quote from a local shop to have the bracket welded on. They were talking about having to take off the wheel, removing the ABS, and hard brake line to weld it on (the backside).

Did anyone else have issues with the brake line and ABS wire?

Find someone in your local 4x4 group who welds. I got a quote of $ 350 to weld them on from a shop :-/

$350?!?! Holy crap its like a ten minute job including moving the lines out of the way. The bracket is such a good fit that it requires zero fit up. Literally jacked truck up, removed panhard on the axle side, moved/bent lines out of the way, put bracket on and loosely installed pan hard on top position to make sure it lined up, tacked bracket. Removed panhard, finish weld, paint and reinstall panhard. Done.

Had eimkeith's panhard correction kit welded October 2018 & have about 25,000 miles on it. This was the first time I had anything welded to my 4runner. I would have purchased this kit sooner but trying to find a welder I trusted took a while. I found a local mobile welder, Steeling Time Welding, on t4r. Corey, owner/welder was great to work with & had him do a few other projects for me. I disassembled my rear suspension & had it on jack stands the night before. I did this to give him as much space as possible to work. I had him cut 1/4" wall, 1/2" ID steel round tube to use as crush sleeves for the empty bolt holes in the original mounting locations. This was not necessary but liked the idea for increased potential strength. I don't remember exactly how much & how long everything took but it was about $150-$200 & 3-4 hours for both sides. This included taking measurements, waiting for weld-thru primer to dry, spot welding, remeasuring, welding, grinding, test fitting the panhard bar & crush sleeves etc. The time it took to complete this install had nothing to do with the quality of eimkeith's PCK. I just don't like to rush work that requires proper fitment, welding, etc especically if it's something I haven't done before. If I had to do this a 2nd time it would probably take half that time.

Eimkeith's PCK was a great investment. It noticeably improved handling over bumpy roads & turns. It's important to keep in mind that this is one of several variables that can influence vehicle handling but it's a pretty big one. I'm still using my Sonoran Steel adjustable panhard but I have it shortened to where it is just slightly longer than stock length. An adjustable bar isn't necessary with eimkeith's kit but it's nice to have to make sure the rear axle is as close to fully centered as possible since rear lift heights can vary. I determined the new length of my adjustable panhard by putting the rear suspension back together (minus the panhard) & the weight of the vehicle on the tires with my usual cargo load. I settled my suspension by lifting up & down on the trailer hitch multiple times. I then adjusted the SS bar until the bolt holes lined up exactly with the PCK brackets. Panhard is level & axle is centered.

A few tips:
1. The 2 washers that come with the PCK brackets are for the passenger side bracket. They go directly in front & behind the panhard bolt holes.
2. Grind/sand the paint/powder coat off the areas of the frame & axle that are going to be welded beforehand to save time.

Removing the tires does help a lot and allow you to weld the front easier. all the brakes lines just need be move a little, I've done it to my 4th gen and my buddy 5th gen. anyone with basic welding can do it for cheap.

If I only have a 2in lift would it be a bad idea to install upper bracket too? Since lower bracket should be enough to level the bar I’m wondering if I might lose some room to flex if I have the upper bracket welded in while still using factory bolt location.

The welder welded both the outside & inside of the brackets for strength. Don't know how common or necessary it is but thought it was worth mentioning.

hey there, just saw this! welding the inside is just fine, but you'll need to grind a portion of the weld if you return to the factory hole in the future (not a huge deal.)

I just chamfered the outer face well and welded that side when I installed mine, but I certainly won't advise against more welds!

Good that you brought that up. We thought about grinding a small portion of the inside weld after we realized the crush sleeve wouldn't slide into the factory location but also to have the option to return the panhard to its original location. We decided to cut the crush sleeve in half & slide it in place in 2 pieces and save the grinding if it becomes needed. The kit is awesome, more people need to know about it.

I have a 2002 4Runner that came with a Rough Country lift. Replaced the rear springs with OME 861s and Bilstein 5100 shocks. The Rough Country lift left the panhard bar at an angle. Not knowing this was not standard, when I installed the OME 861 springs and took a ride, I noticed the rear end was a lot more loose and floaty. I had noticed this when I first bought the 4Runner, but resolved that with replacing all the bushings in the rear and replacing the rear end links with front end links. So, having resolved those issues, I wasn't sure why I was feeling this again, although less than before. Additionally, going into a curve I drive daily at a certain speed, now the traction control light and beeping comes on often, but never did before on this curve.

FWIW, I bought the OME 861 springs because one, I am not a fan of Rough Country and two, after loading the rear end with a Shrockworks bumper, a spare 33" tire, a high-lift and 2 Jerry cans, it leveled out the rear. But when I would load it with gear, the rear sagged a bit.

Anyway, I am really happy this post helped me to figure out why the rear is acting the way it is. I just bought these @eimkeith Looking forward to getting them welded on.

Finally got a decent amount of driving in since the install. I have to admit I was a little skeptical that I’d notice a difference but wanted to correct the geometry anyway. Believe the hype. You will notice improved stability/handling in the rear. Very impressed with the product and customer service. Plan on buying more products in the future

@eimkeith thanks again for the brackets. Had my neighbor weld them on, added an outside mounted flat bracket on the driver side to add some extra strength. Made my pan hard bar almost perfectly straight, but made my wheels sit perfectly center. Love the brackets!

Just ordered these. Figured while I have my axle out to clean up all the rust this is the perfect time to weld these on. Excited to feel the difference because on washboard roads I can feel the rear end bouncing all over the place.

Apologies in advance if this has already asked. For 3rd gens with 3” lift, which hole should be used for the lowering bracket side? Should I use lowest hole?
