When the rearend wraps up during throttle application the angled bar will cause the rearend to try to straighten out the pullbar. If you are running a 3 link and a j-bar the pullbar is trying to pull the rearend to the left against the J-bar. It could cause some binding problems. You should try to keep the links running straight in the chassis. If you need more left rear move the whole link to the left, not just the front or rear of the link.

i don't think having it to the left a little is going to hurt you. jack up the left side of your car and i'll bet the rear end is going to move to the left ( the more angle in the j-bar the more it will move ) and your pullbar might just be pretty staight then with the centerline of the car. our rearend moves 1 1/2 to 2 in. during body roll. you would definitely NOT want the front of the pull bar to the right for just this reason

I was always told (Guys correct me if I'm wrong) that if you point the front of the pull bar towards the right front it will tighten the car all around the corner and if you point towards the left front it will loosen it all the way around the corner. The more you point it in either direction the more it promotes either result.
