Everything went together like it had eyes. All welds are high quality and bars are bookends of each other. Can't wait to try some 7 grand hole shots in my gasser.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.

Yes these would need welded to the rear end. The brackets are for 3" OD axle tubes. You will need to measure the length of bar needed and see if this configuration will work on your pickup.
