Re: homemade panhard bar guys i need pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<<I think i heard you want the Panhard to be as close to possible the same length as the drag link? >>
Only partialy correct mik, to avoid bump steer it needs to be :
o Same length
o Parrellell to the drag link
o Have the same roll center as the front axle
Its better if the 2 bars are the same vertical height, but more important, when intrducing a second roll
center, to have as close to the same center, to the roll center created by the spring eyes as possible.
Otherwise you are pulling and twisting the springs sideways more, and flexing the frame at the panhard
mount point. The panhard bar ends and spring bushings will see more wear and tear too.
