    I have a 86 blazer with crossover and a 6 inch custom lift(deaver springs and no sway bar). I have a MOO anti wrap and shock inboarding set up on the way. My problem is that my blazer is a daily driver and I am looking to get rid of some of the sway and want to know if anyone has a panhard with leaf springs setup. Does anyone make one or have any pics of there home built ones?

    some high quality monotube shocks, oriented vertically, would prolly help. What is your front suspension like?

    go to the Center of Gravity forum. There is a big thread about leaf springs and panhards there.

    panhard bar

    I built one out of chrome moly on the frt of my '87 when i went crossover with a 8" lift. It help out a lot.
    But, I think i can make it better by going back to a sway bar and fabricating one from these guys at www.1speedway.com
    I got a pic of the Panhard on my '87 here http://community.webshots.com/user/bad4wd

    definetally on backwards and too much angle on it. Not to mention that mounting to the spring plate is not a good idea IMHO. Allow too much movement and could easily damage your ubolts, not cool when one side of your axle wants to just do its own thing. Single shear on the heim isn't ideal my any means.
