Default Panhard Bar, or not?

My rear suspension on my 23T consists of split wishbones, a high arch spring, and friction shocks on an S-10 rearend. Can anyone shed some light on whether I need a panhard bar or not?

Thanks.

Here's my thought. A panhard rod is used to keep the rearend located from side to side. The high-arch spring should perform the same function.

Thanks. That was my thought, but wanted to get another opinion.

Thumbs up

Guys mount stuff all def ways,so; with no photo to go by!
For T/A spring in rear.
No bar if;Only if shackels are 45* or flater,and shock have some angle inward at the top
Bar if; shackels are down below 45* or hanging near stait down,shocks are near or strait up and down.
If you think about it,those things I listed are about side to side control.
If you can stand beside the car and shake it from side to side and note if body/frame is moving a lot but tire are staying still=needs a bar

Mike, I'm following your build, saw your gallery of pics. You have one fine car there and like what you are doing. Keep us up to date on your progress.

Thanks. Everything is in primer ready for paint. Unfortunately, I had to box everything up to make a move to Nashville. Hope to have a garage again soon, get it painted and assembled. My target is spring of 2013.

Mike in Memphis.
