    I'll try.

    They do the job that the upper Control Arms, and LCA's dont do very well.
    Keeps the axle centered.
    similar to a Panhard, but without the slight arc movement.


    This site is very very very very good at explaining suspension :)

    I'd consider a Torque Arm/Panhard setup as well.
