Four link rear suspensions are often supplemented by a fifth link, called a Panhard rod

to locate the axle side-to-side and also define the roll center of the suspension design.

This car is unusual because it has two different Panhard rods installed. This one

is rearward of the axle, level to the ground, and at about the same height as the axle.

A secondary (apparently redundant) Panhard rod is installed forward of and below the axle.
