Either the four bar or the standard ladder bar can benefit from a panhard bar to eliminate side to side movement. If you run a parallel 4 bar then a panhard bar is a must. If you use a triangulated 4 bar suspension then a panhard bar is not necessary. As far as one over the other the choice is basically personal preference. The differences in ride characteristics are small.

This ladder bar set makes use of heim ends both front and back which allow for some side to side movement. If you had regular rod ends with urethane bushings then a panhard bar is required. With the heim ends it is not required but for total control we still suggest a panhard bar to eliminate the side to side movement.

The ladder bars are 42” plus the heim ends and the brackets at the housing. Approximately 6” add for front end at center of heim to center or rear end housing to compensate for the heim ends and brackets.

Universal Rear Sway Bar Kit
(Part #91649019)
                        

Universal rear sway bar fits frame up to 45" wide, which makes it ideal for many 1928-1948 street rod applications. Both the 1-1/4" diameter shaft and the 2" O.D. weld-in frame tube can be shortened for narrower frames. The billet aluminum arms are not splined - they are held on by drilling the shaft and inserting a bolt all the way through the end of the shaft.

Includes bushings, 3/8" adjustable rod ends and all hardware. Welding required.

Old School 38 Inch Ladder Bars
(Part #91645121)
                        These ladder bars definitely will get some attention while getting the job done.  Made of heavy .177" plate, we then add lightening holes along with 5/8" polyurethane bushing, axle plates, coilover mounts, and front mounting plates. The length is measured from axle centerline to the front bushing centerline.  This is the same assembled length of our classic 32" rear radius rods.  Welding and fitting required.
