I have a question I was lookling into buying rear control arms and a panhard bar. Is there a big difference between the adjustable ones and the stationary ones? If so what is the big difference

If you're going to lower your car, the adjustable panhard allows you to compensate for the decreased distance between the mounting point on the chassis and the mounting point on the axle. And (someone correct me if I am wrong) the adjustable LCA's do the same thing.

The adjustable arms allow you to recenter the axle.is you lower it or you. I have a adj. Set and not adj set of UMI's you can use either they both work better than stock but the adj. Allow you more.choices of alignment and also they make relocation brackets for.lowered cars and make.stick.height launch better supposedly1998 Trans Am 85k miles.

Panhard rod centers the axle horizontally, lower control arms center it longitudinally. If you have wider than 9.5" a panhard rod is a must on a lowered car. Most don't need adj lca's but with 18" wheels I needed them so the tire wouldn't grab the front of the fender in big bumps.

IMHO i would get adj LCA and PHB....they will center your rear and are good if and when you swap your rearend to a 9in or 12bolt
