Default Pan Hard Bar Install

I fabed up a Pan Hard Bar set-up and thought I'd make sure there's nothing wrong with it.

Everything I read told me parallel at ride height, and frame mounted tab on the same side as the steering box / front pan hard bar.

It will be welded to my axle tube and the thru bolts are only to bolt up my 4 link bar ends. And tab's welded on the driver side frame to maintain level.

I wish when I bought the 4 link bars the had adjustable ends on both side. Now I'd have to remove the bolts, jack the pinion end, adjust and slide back in. To go the other way I'd have to put the jack above the pinion and jack down from the frame. Would have been so much easier for adjusting down the road if I would have thought to get both ends adjustable. I'm kinda disappointed the guy I bought them from didn't tell me that. Hopefully I won't have to adjust.

Speaking of adjusting... I made my trans x-member so I could change out shims which are made out of round DOM.

Any thoughts on the Pan Hard set up?
