The idea of making a panhard bar as long as possible is to minimize the side movement from the arc. The bar on my sedan mounts to the left frame rail to a bracket to the right side of the pumpkin, making it a little longer than half the distance between the frame rails. Since it is level at normal ride height, there is very little arc throughout the range of suspension travel.
