panhard/torque arm vs. watts link?

I have a 97 cobra and was wondering what were your experiences of a panhard bar and torque arm combo vs. a watts link with no upper control arms? any input would be appreciated- thanks

Explain your second option. A watts link alone does not allow for the removal of the upper arms.

came out wrong-sorry. with the installation of a torque arm you remove the torque arms-this is what I meant, so I should have titled my question panhard bar vs. watts link

I've heard the watts link style won't allow standard exhaust paths to work, now if you don't care and have the extra money I've heard the watts is a better setup. If your doing it on a budget panhard/torque arm

I was reading on the fays2 site and they didn't mention anything about not clearing the exhaust

Ok, wanted to verify that you understood. The fays2 will clear most exhaust. We had a heated debate on the watts/panhard a few months ago in this forum, I would search for that.
