When I swapped the factory 16" to 18" I had problems with the rear feeling a little off. I swapped my to a UMI panhard and lca's and even with those same shocks the car handled muck better. Think the stiffer adj. Panhard made the biggest difference. As far as shock since I was doing BMR spings and spohn sway bar kit I couldn't afford koni's and got kyb agx's and there great shocks I know a few others who run them with factory spings and stano's as well. Everyone I know likes them and for $360 for all four can't beat the price.1998 Trans Am 85k miles.

Here is a photo, looks like the panhard bar bushing may be worn. Does it look like it has pushed out of the bracket some where the arrow is?

Factory panhard bars suck anyway.

It sure does look like it woody, but it's hard to tell since the bolt hole location doesn't appear to be symmetrical with the bracket to begin with.
I'll look at mine in the morning and get back to you when i get to work. I need some sleep lol.

Did you get a chance to look at yours 35th?
04-01-2010, 07:55 AM #29
If I remember right, yours did too. So it looks the same as yours.

Check your drag-link bushings. What's your side wall height and tire pressure filled to? That tire in the pic looks shot.. Pull the calipers and then pull and push on the axles see if there is exsessive end play. Problem maybe front end related as well.

I'm getting an adj panhard if/when I do but what are the advantages of adjustable LCA's? Just to get the rear to track correctly or for "track" purposes?

The most important thing is LCA relocation brackets to lower your instant center. This will help with traction.

I had upgrade from 17" stock rims to 18" and when switching lanes at highway speeds the car would feel like it's wagging its @ss. The adjustable Panhard bar fixed this issue. The stock one flexs like you wouldn't believe.

I've got my adjustable PHB on the car. Had it offset to one side like a mofo when I first put it on. But it's all good now...
In response to the OP, to make a long story short, gave the car to my buddy so it would pass state inspectioin (), he gave it back to me the next day and told me it had started to vibrate, maybe a trans mount. I said ok. The DD was the Yukon, didn't drive the camaro. So I went to replace the Trans mount and the TA mount with polyurethane ones, also put 17" chrome c6 wheels/tires on, at the same time. I noticed it was almost WORSE
I had to do a little bending on the TA bracket to get the polyurethane bushing to fit in there, but I got it, and it's back to it's original shape and form (90% anyways). However, my TA is twisted. You may want to take a look at all these things as well. Since putting the facotry wheels and tires back on, it's helped alot, but there's still some shake/vibration there. And when turning the car, it seems like the back end wants to "swim around". Next mods are a TA relocation crossmember and an aftermarket tubular TA. And taking a 3rd look at the adjustments on my PHB
Where is Mark
