If I hadn't already built a Watts link

If it`s not to much trouble,is it possible to show some pictures?
I`m thinking of builing one for my 62.

So I received and installed an adjustable panhard bar from Spohn Performance and it allowed me to recenter the rear end. My rear suspension bushings are pretty worn so that will be next. Thanks very much to everyone that helped!

If using the y bone do you still use the pan hard bar?
I was going to weld a bracket to the top of my diff to install a second top arm and use an adjustable pan hard, but thinking this may be a better option.

I’m interested in photos of your Watts link setup. I’m curious how well the Y bone keeps the rear centered in conjunction with say an adjustable panhard bar versus say a Watts link setup or a triangulated 4 link

I've read everything, and digested it as best as I can.
It still seems to me that the best, and most practical method is to simply install a second upper control arm.
