Adding a panhard bar would've been difficult especially with the club car's aluminum frame and I feel the 4-link is very forgiving if everything isn't measured exactly perfect.
Thank you for your input sir!

Jumping in late but chromoly is overkill. I run a 6000 lbs Jeep and my 4-links were both built with weld seam tubing (HREW). A lot of your strength will be found in the diameter of the tubing. Throw the biggest one you feel comfortable with and you'll be fine.

edit: you're not crawling this thing and I doubt will be doing any whoop-eating. don't over think it.

Not late at all. This thread is intended for those of us that are learning about these types of suspensions, I hope to keep it going.

Good points! I appreciate your input and solutions. Got any pics of your Jeeps for reference?

It's a pretty big pile but I enjoy tinkering on it

That looks like a BLAST! I don't think anyone will be wheeling their carts like that
