Shelby watts link second thoughts

Recommended Posts

So i received my shelby watts ling and now im having second thought installing it on my 07 sgt. The more research i do the more im leaning towards the simple ford performance adjustable panhard.

Any thoughts to ease my mind? Is it really nesessary to install what seems to be a complicated, more moving parts watts link when a simple adjustable panhard will do the job for less $$$?

I feel i am jumping the gun on this.

Don’t get cold feet. The Watts is far superior. Night and day, even in everyday driving.

Thank you for that. What is the procedure of making sure the axle is centered when adjusting? What location should that center bolt be adjusted to, top, middle, bottom?

I dont want to screw nothing up.

make sure to use locktite on the center bolt/nut...  mine got loose during a track day...  instructions were a bit vague back then...

It sorta felt better, but I doubt I was any faster between that and the adj panhard.

I didn't damn, but she's at 100ft/lbs

I have it installed. It was a process let me tell ya.. 

What am I look g for when adjusted properly. I put her back on the ground to see if the link bars were level. The passenger side is tilting up a hair. I may have to adjust the axle tube bracket a bit lower? It's so... close to 4 o'clock. Axcel could be shifted towards the passenger side a bit. 

What is the best way to accomplish best results adjustment wise? Up and down on the lift 100 times? 😂 

Also the center pivot bolt is in the lowest setting. Couldn't put in center because of clearance issues... will this be a problem?

If you have clearance issues, put the bolt in the other way. The flat, shallow side toward the diff cover.

I didn't need Locktite. 

(Not my car, BTW, just a photo I could find quickly to help you).

What an honor! The man himself!

BTW, I did the same thing with the digital angle gauge! LOL.... Don't remember if Jim taught me that, or not!

So........ How does it DRIVE? (More like, did YOU notice the difference?)
