Welcome Timo

I would like to ask a question or two about the Johnny Joints if I may? I had not heard about them before, and have just watched their promotional video on Youtube, but it would seem tm there there would be little reason to install them on the panhard rods, unless they also improve positional accuracy (which the maker doesn't specefically claim)?

Safe and happy travels!
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Hey thank you for all our welcome greetings!
@Peter we installed HD and adjustable Panhards.
Wr have had the option to choose between Poly Bushes or the Johnny's.
The advantage of the Johnny's from my point of view: rebuildable and greasable, that's it. The surcharge was quiet small, so I decided to go for it.

Cheers Timo

Peter,

I think you should be able to send messages at the moment. I have temporarily increased the limit whilst I get the capability of deleting PM's working properly again. Give it a bash, and let me know if there are issues.
