Hi there Folks, I was wondering where do I mount my bracket for the panhard bar for the rear end.(Ladder bar,coil-over,stock rear frame rails)
Do I weld it to the housing, or the axle tube?Left or Right side?
Thanx,Brandon

Each vendor can have different specs of length and location. I would ask the vendor who manufactured the piece as to where they recommend for their particular unit. Usually it's to the housing.

Why do you need a panhard bar? Novas use leak springs. Did you install C/O shocks? If you did you must have done ladder bars or a 4 link? If you have them I'd suggest a diagonal link as a sway control devise. It would run from the ladder bar or 4 link mounts front to rear, side to side. If you have to use a panhard bar make it as long as possible mounted level when the cars at ride height and try to make it the same height as the axel centerline. That should give you a decent roll center and minimize the rear end walk when you hit bumps. JMHO, RM

I just read the instructions from C.E. online, they are more detailed than the ones that they sent with the kit.
McCoy, you were right on.
