Lol. Predictive text.
I run a short panhard on one of my cars and a long one on the short one at low speeds you can feel axle to body roll ,but nothing on the one with the long bar
This is because it keeps the roll centre in the same position, when it is on the axle it varies.see a setup a bit different last week the swivel linkage was on the chassis behind the axle and the bars went to the axle at the outer ends
A quick google says the roll centre with a panhard rod is where it crosses the centre of the vehicle, which should be the middle of the bar if done right.
The thing to remember with panhard rods is the three L's, long low and level.
A lot depends on packaging..
did read befor that behind the axle centre line was the best place.my Volvo has a panhard rod and that sits in that position.
I do think you will get away with anything,but most really don't seam to care about proper set ups,or don't understand
And unless it was really pronounced Joe Blogs like me wouldn't know or recognise it.
I got a Boxster for fun and apparently it's one of the sweetest drives ever made! Lost on me with that feel the steering malarky, it just sticks to the road like **** to a blanket!!
I have adjusted the height and length of the panhard rod and I could detect the difference. Just saying.
So far the lower I have mounted it the better it has felt, it is still a work in (slow) progress. The axle mount height is about level with the bottom of the differential. The chassis mount is a few inches higher but I would like to lower it.
