I figure since everyone over here knows about superdutys, I'd ask this question here. I don't own one, or plan to buy one soon. The inspector on my job just got his lifted, and there is a panhard bar on the front end. I asked around on the Donahoe racing website (they make the edge lift kit for them), and they said it was to locate the axle. It is a leaf sprung vehicle. What gives. I just want to know for my own personal info.

Thanks,

Erin

its there to reduce bump steer. Same reason they are on Yjs too.

How much bump steer can you get out of a suspension that barely flexes? It just seems like it is a waste of time to worry about moving it. Also, why would a YJ have it in the rear than? No steering.:confused:

So your rear end doesn't pass or front end:) The real problem is most of the truck buyers today want car like ride and handling, they have no idea what a solid axle rig is like on the road. Ifs is not cheaper to produce, or superior offroad to a solid axle, its just more car like and sells the vehicle to someone who should be driving a car not a truck..just my 2C:)

when i had my lift installed on mine the shop forgot to tighten the adjustable end of that bar, and it had some very weird wandering/jerking characteristic's, it's definatly there for a reason!
