What's inside the panhard bar?

While trying to locate my rear suspension clunk, one of the suggestions was to go hit on various parts with a rubber mallet to see if anything is loose. Everything seems tight and secure, but when I tapped on the factory panhard bar it sounds like the thing is full of pennies. Just curious if anyone has cut this thing open to see what's rattling around in there? Because I may just do that when I install an aftermarket bar.

It's full of antigolacmites to even the pressure out when the tires are rotating. Your fine.

Oh, I'm not worried about it. More of a curiosity thing.

Yes! From the latin word "antigola" meaning "small beads".
I concur... They are there for a very specifc reason.

Makes me kind of want to check mine. Granted mine isn't a factory unit, and designed for a completely different year. I don't ever remember hearing anything inside of mine.

I've had the front bar off, it is tubular, and I didn't notice anything rattling around inside.

You don't have the factory rear bar anymore?

Yeah the one I took off my 2011 didn't make any sounds either that I remember. I may pull it out of the shed and check it out of curiosity. Maybe I can use it as a rain stick and call down some rain to wash this salt away.

The panhard bar?

I think we are thinking of two different things. Our cars never came with one at all.

Well seeing as I'm going with new upper and lower control arms and sway bars, I'm not terribly concerned about NVH that I add. I just got curious when I was searching for the source of the NVH from the factory and discovered the "rain stick" when tapping around back there.

Haha, I will embrace the handling improvements provided by new parts.

My old truck, lowered 3" with 267/70/17 tires had terrible NVH, so I just got a louder stereo. I could make the tires rub the inside of the front fenders if I hit the brakes hard enough, lol.
