I have one and I can honestly say that it has the most dramatic affect on your steering that you will not believe it. My steering was literally tighter than a stock Sami's, we tested that at the Melt. And I run 33x12.50s. If you have a SPOA with shackles in the standard location, up front, then you will freak at how sports-car-like your steering will be afterwards. Shackle reverse people have a little less to worry about, but dont be fooled, their stuff moves when they steer too. That pan hard bar was probably one of the single most dramatic improvements to my Sami, and you can read my spec sheet for yourself! Also, when steering on the trail you will make turns twice as easy as those who are SPOA and dont have some kind of link device like a panhard bar. On the pink trail all the guys were taking multi-point turns while I just turned my wheel and went. Its almost like having power steering. Now keep in mind, all of this dramatic difference talk I am giving you is because I ran SPOA for YEARS and I noticed a HUGE difference.
One draw back though. I have a drop away shackle, the revolver, and the panhard bar limits travel if you have this type of set up. You will still get an awesome amount of droop, dont get me wrong. But when you have a drop away shackle, you want the axle to move straight down a little before it follows the arch of the axle housing. A panhard bar forces it to follow an arch at all times. I probably would have scored a lot higher at the ramp if I had disconnected mine. It was kind of obvious, to me, that my rear suspension was flexing flawlessly but the front wasnt letting my Revolvers open up hardly at all.
Oh well, I will keep my panhard bar and disconnect it for the trail when it gets nasty.
