I got brave and put a short 9" panhard bar on my 2 link springs on top car last nite for practice. I'll tell ya if you want a wild ride go with this setup. Previously I was using a J-bar and couldnt get the car to hike up any, and my understanding hiking up is a good thing till a certain point. When I put the short bar on it planted the LR harder than i've ever seen/driven, this is my 2nd year in a car, it would pull the LF off about 1 1/2 feet. Alls i can say is it felt faster than all get out but was a handfull in the corners. Im gunna keep the short bar on but get a longer one that mounts to the outside of the frame bracket, IE: 12" bar. Should keep the LR planted coming off and wont be so radical when on the gas. Anyone else have any inputs with the short bar let me know. http://www.2nd2nonemotorsports.com
