me and my buddy are running ametric chassi this year and we can mov the upper mounts or the trailling arms but can not run any type of panhard bar. we where thinking if move only the left uper and mad it strate and left the rr on an angel would it still do its job from letting the rear end move side to side acting as a panhard bar.. i think almost make it like a 3 link set up ... would it work

Take the left upper and turn it so it runs straight front and back and mount is so you have at least 15 degrees of angle withthe rear higher than the front. then take a lower link(because its longer) and run it from the original upper mount on the right side(preferable lower on the frame) and mount it as close to the left upper mount on the rearend as you can. with the left upper straight in the chassis it is now a pullbar and the right upper is now acting as a panhard bar. by mounting the uppers as close together as you can it will eliminate alot of bind in the uppers as the chassis rolls. this also applies to standard stock fourlinks as well.
