i already have the lower control arms, subrame connectors, and edelbrock torque arm, all of these i have noticed a difference in the way the car feels, the only piece left is the pan hard bar, question is, what has this piece done for those out there who have it. does the car have less sway? handle corners better? how about on launches at the drags?2000 auto camaro

For me the main reason for getting it (adjustable) was to re-center the rear wheels after I lowered it. The rear end moved to the right about an inch or so. Plus, the solid design will flex a lot less (if any!) than the stock stamped sheet metal piece. Other than that, no other real noticable gains.

panhard keeps the rear from moving sideways.

so it looks like it will improve the cars stability during turns, sounds good, i don't see the need for an adj. one for me cause i'm never going to lower my car and plus they are a little cheaper.
thanks for the replies

you are assuming the rear is centered correctly from the factory. mine was off about 3/8" to the right.

centering should be based when the suspension is compressed with wheels inside the wheel well, not @ stationary height... rubbing occurs when the suspension gets compressed and wheels go up... that's when you want it centered to avoid rubbing on either side.
