Thanks. I guess I could list it but didn't know if it was frowned upon for not being Ford.

Yeah Doug's got some cool stuff, nice mods.

LG is right in my backyard so-to-speak, I run their PRO long tubes/X pipe/HF cat system (friggin Love it) and their G5X1 cam, LS6 intake. Great car.

My sister and brother-in-law both have 82 C-3's, he also has a 96 Grand Sport, vettes run in the family, no pun intended, NOT

With the panhard bar that way, the radius rods that share a connection to the axle with the panhard bar will move in an arc almost perfectly vertical. The opposite side will have a slight arc in/out, but with the radius used, should be fairly minimal. Regardless, it is still locating the axle and keeping it in a pre-defined range of side-to-side motion. It is in some ways similar to a triangulated 4-link.
