I've been looking at getting a set of Ultra low for the back of the vp.

Just double checking if i need a adjustable panhard rod?? and
what would happin if i didn"t put the adjustable rod in???

I was speaking to Greg from GLS Rrally Sport and he says:

Anything below low is preferable to have an adjustable rod to square the car back up, but not 100% critical.
any comments or advice from people who have done this would be great!!

Cheers, Ed

An adjustable panhard will correct the diff position once the new springs are in and remove tyre scrub from the inner guards helps to correct wheel alignment to . Too say its not 100% necessary is bad advice

Well since you are going for ultra lows, it's all about looks, the stock rod is going to make it look like the rear end of your car has taken a shunt sideways :p. But yeah anything lower than low/FE2 should have one

Thanks guys for quick replys... looks like im going to have to wait a few more weeks till i can get the adjustable rod and springs...

Or dose anyone know were i can get these items but cheaper??... even 2nd hand will do.. I've had a look on the for sale theards, found nothing.. I've got a few stanard springs/ shocks i can swap if anyone wants them and also the rear lows that will be comming out when i put ultra's in.

Rear Ultra Low Springs P/N KHPR-20SL : $135 for the pair.
A Whiteline premium on car adjustable panhard rod : $165
