Purpose of lever panhard bar?

I'm sure original suspension angles is the answer, But with the small lift, and without longer sway bar links, can someone tell me what I'm experiencing vs. Level panhard and longer endlinks?
Is the rear suspension under slight tension instead of neutral right now?

There is no tension with the panhard angle, simple geometry tells us the roll center of the rear axle/body is the exact center of the panhard bar, so raising the axle side mount with a panhard correction kit levels the panhard and increases the height of the roll center, and levels out the panhard. I've experienced the panhard correction kit and it does a good job of reducing sway when turning.

Leveling out the panhard either by lowering your suspension to stock angles or the panhard correction kit, can help with bump-steer. Your panhard bar is the only thing holding your axle side to side, and as your suspension articulates the panhard moves up and down. Even though the panhard is long, this still causes the axle to shift side to side which effects your steering when hitting bumps. Leveling the panhard will mean it can articulate further either direction before pulling/pushing your axle side to side. The further it is from level, the rate at which it pulls/pushes your axle will increase. For example with made up numbers, with the panhard unlevel by 4 degrees it pulls the axle 1/4" to the right but if it's unlevel by 8 degrees it pulls the axle 1" to the right. So level at ride height is ideal.

I recently installed the bracket to level mine out and noticed a big difference. Zim is correct in that there is less sway. The biggest difference for me was getting rid of the rear end float at highway speeds. Before when I hit larger bumps in the road the rear always had a weird floating sensation to it before it settled. That is now gone. For how inexpensive it is itís a no brainer.
