Rear end slide....

I was driving home from the airport today after getting my plane tickets for Christmas. I went to pass someone and my rear end started to fishtail from side to side. My brothers and I thought I might have had a blowout when I got under the car I saw that one of the suspension components, a bar that was suppose to be solid behind the sway bar but in front of the rear end pumpkin was broken into two pieces. What exactly is this part? The Panhard bar?

If yes it's your Panhard bar.

It is going straight across instead of diagonally across. Well it's now snapped in the center but on each side it is level on each side

Can post a picture of it?
That'd be the easiest way to tell what it is.

Thank you. From what I could determine from other pictures I gathered the same. I ordered a BMR non-adjustable Panhard bar from American Muscle just a little bit ago.

That's a good one. Now if you plan on lowering the car at a certain point you'll need an adjustable Panhard bar to correct the misalignment of the rear end. One side will stick out and the other pushed in. I needed an adjustable one with a 1.75in lower in the rear.

Thank you sir. Right now I'm just keeping everything as stock as I can until it's paid off then the fun will begin. I'all be sure to keep that in mind wen I get to that point. The only mods on my car at this time are Pypes twin mid length mufflers, some light modifications since I'm a fire fighter and Probation officer, and royal purple running through its veins everywhere.

Thank you sir. I definitely will. I've been floating around on here since I got my mustang in 2015. Just been looking at ideas and whatnot. I did give an introduction in the intro section.

Rear end slide....

Well, I finally got the BMR bar installed and what a difference did it make. No more rear end slide. The factory bar had no grease fittings at all and the bushings were completely shot when it snapped. I'll attached a few pictures here.

Well the car is nearing 100,000 miles plus it doesn't help that my car gets best to hell by me when I have to get to the firehouse fast.
