Yes, I have installed Panhard bars in several cars with Hotchkiss suspension. I have done it for the reasons I and others have stated in prior posts, to reduce lateral deflection and reduce or solve tire clearance issues. I used to have some photos posted on this site, but they seem to be missing and I think there was an example there. Most recently I built a 35 Ford 2 door sedan that had a Chassis Engineering leaf spring kit and I installed a custom Panhard bar just to tighten things up. It wasn't a road racer by any means, but adding the bar just makes the car more precise and tight without losing the ride. I'll see if I can come up with some photos.
