A bar with pivoting ends that prevents the front or rear axle from moving from side to side during suspension travel.

How:  A panhard bar connects to the frame at one end and the axle, suspension component or rearend housing at the other.  They swing through an arc when the suspension travels up or down so they should be parallel to the roadway at rest and the length should be as long as possible.  Front and rear bars should both be attached to the same side of the frame.
