Leaf spring tundra sas

I searched and couldnít find any good info on this so maybe this forum can help. Iím almost done with a sas conversation on my 2006 tundra Iím running 63Ē Chevy spring on the front and I was told that I really need a pan hard bar on it. Does anyone have any experience with this, Iíve only went on a few short test drives with it so far and I havenít noticed any issues from not having it.

This is how my front suspension is currently setup (yes I know the spring bolts are loose, I took this pic before it was drivable)

Who built the steering link?

Who and why did they said you needed a panhard bar?

you are only running shackles up front correct?
no expert but it seems like a panhard is usually only used on coil spring suspensions though there are kits available to lead spring trucks.

my SAS is fine with out a panhard but my springs are only 47" long so it might be related to your long springs

you might try pirate.

I built the steering link, itís a solid and doesnít flex at all if thatís what you were wondering. The truck drives fine as it is but a friend of mine who has built a lot of hiboy fords says he would put a panhard bar on it.

I decided the truck was to tall so I lowered it, added a panhard bar and had to build a new drag link. It drives great now, for the first time since Iíve owned it I can take both hands off the wheel running 75-80mph.
