Proper way to measure for panhard bar

I lowered my 92z about an inch. I have an adjustable panhard bar and lca relocation brackets. Im not sure how to measure for the panhard bar to center the rear. It appears to be centered while in a parked state. When I launch the car the rear seems to shift toward the drivers side which makes sense. But is there anyway make that not happen?

When you originally installed it, did you match it up to the factory PHB length and then install?

As far as the rear and shifting lateralley, is the nut snugged up against the bar so it can't twist itself at all? Also get yourself back underthere and crank down on that bolt. You'd be surprised, sometimes tight isn't tight enough. Very common in jeeps

Is the bar parallel with the ground? Often its not and the axle side of the bar needs to be relocated lower to correct this. Kits are available or you can make something yourself if you so inclined.

It is tight. The panhard bar isnt parallel to the ground and I dont think it ever was. I have had the heater hose on factory springs for years with no issues. I put 1.5in lowering springs with adjustable shocks with the adjustable panhard and lcarbs with the factory isolator and now its doing it. I saw a panhard bar relocation bracket is available I could maybe try that to help it be closer to parallel.

Even with the bar parallel to the ground you'll have some lateral movement, but it will be minimized as long as the bar is parallel to the ground.

A Watts link will eliminate any lateral movement, but is expensive and obviously weighs more.

If you are interested in a Watts link set up, i believe a member has one for sale.
