thanks dave, so how much lower can you go before the stock panhard bar need's to be changed to keep the rear centered.

Saleen Inc installed the adjustable bar as standard equipment on their S281 Extreme model. If you want one, you can use one.

Never heard that Dave. I thought it was only a Watts link that was used to correct the rear geometry on the Extremes.

With the standard Racecraft suspension, you will see about 3/4" offset (my personal experience) to the drivers side at ride height. Using a good adjustable panhard bar or Watts link setup will correct this. The Watts link is much better for an overall handling upgrade but it is way more expensive.

The 2006-07 S281 Extreme had the adjustable bar. The 2008-09 S302 Extreme had the Gen II Watts-Link.
