Watts link > panhard.

The reason they do it is 'cause they run a 4-link rear suspension, and need something tho locate the axle side to side. And a Watts link doesn't move side to side with up and down motion like a panhard bar does, so it just makes more sense with an adjustable suspension.

I'll say it:

I don't like it.

I don't mind sport trucks lowered 2" or so, but I don't like bagged trucks at all. Still don't ha.

But that's just my op. I can appreciate all the work it takes to do something like that though, so

And I'm not a redneck either. Rednecks don't drive:

Watts takes up more room, so kinda not a good reason to go with one.
