I'm running a long panhard bar which goes from the left side of the frame to the right side of the axle mounted to the rear - it's about 28-30" in length. I've got about 3-3.5" of height difference with the frame end being higher. I noticed that I'm loading up the RR tire more than the LR and was wondering if running a short panhard bar to about the center of the diff will put more load on the LR in a turn and tighten up the car in the corners.

The car seems to be loose mid-turn to exit and just doesn't have the traction coming off the corner to get on the throttle as hard as I need to...

Any help is greatly appreciated in getting this thing to handle!

Currently my only option is to run one behind the axle - what length is needed? would a 12 or 18" bar work?
