(Also referred to as a "Panhard bar.") This bar locates the vehicle's rear end housing from left-to-right under it. In calibrating the vehicle's "suspension geometry," raising or lowering the track bar changes the rear roll center and determines how well it will travel through the corners. During races, this adjustment is done through the rear window using an extended ratchet. Typically, lowering the track bar will "tighten" the vehicle and raising the track bar will "loosen" it.
A bar extending from the rear end to the chassis that keeps the tires centered.

Found on basically all coil spring equipped rigs that have solid axles, and some leaf spring equipped vehicles. The bar helps locate and stabilize the axle housing. Generally, when lift exceeds 2", the bar must be relocated and / or replaced with a longer, adjustable unit.
This bar assembly adjusts the location of the rear end housing. Raising the bar, or moving the rear end to the left, will usually loosen a tight racecar. Lowering the track bar or moving the rear end to the right will usually tighten up the car.
This is another component of the suspension package. It serves several different functions. First, it connects the frame to the rear suspension. Second, you can raise and lower the track bar to affect the car's handling. This is also referred to as the Panhard bar.
