Same here. I understood, just didn't agree. That's what these discussions should be about, not about a contest to see how many will attack or flame.
I still think that the normal travel of a panhard bar is an arc, and as such it will try to push/deflect the springs sideways as the rear travels up and down. It's just not something I'd ever put on any of my vehicles.
If it's done because clearances are at a minimum, then those clearances must be enoughh that the arc of the panhard bar's travel wont push or pull the axle and create a further clearance issue.
By the way Andy, your build cars are amazing!
