I have mid corner push with 3 link and 14 inch shorty bar from left chassis to left pinion .......4 inches rake in bar ....what will moving the bar down an inch and a half on the chassis side do? ...I am trying to free it up just a little in the corner ....I am having to double set the car to turn it now...thanks.JT

Taking angle out will help some. 3-3 1/2" would be pretty good to start with to me. You may want to raise the pinion side though instead of lower the frame side. It may be too low overall and thats what is making it tight.

My chassis ride hight is 71/2 inches in the rear and I already am in the top hole on the pinion .....will running the bar flat take side bite away ? and loosen me up a little going inand through the middle?

we run a DW and typically the panhard is pretty near the pinion level and then with a short bar like that about 3" rake. IF we lower it we lower the whole thing usually, but your kind of stuck it soundslike. IS there any way to refab the panhard mount to go lower on the frame.
