Only way I found to fix that problem is put stiffer RF spring. That's just a characteristic of the short panhard bar.

Springs determine how much roll you have,shocks determine how fast you have it.

If you drive deep into the corner,you need more spring. We can drive two to three car lengths deeper than anyone uasully but we use 850 to 900 LB RF, which is more than the current norm. Is car Loose or does it push from bottming out RF? It could cause problem either way.

I had the same problem with my car i went up to a 1100 on rf and 1000 lf and it helped but some nights it would still bottom out the rf.
