Those are the rear connecting rods you're looking at. They stop the axle from moving front/rear and rolling along the axle axis. There shouldn't be any movement in the bushings, so you'll want to have them looked at for sure.

It almost looks like the coil wasn't put back into place just right but that is kind of hard to mess up.
Interested to see where Kurtis is going as one of my weak points is knowledge on suspension items.
Good luck to you.
In a parallel 4-link system, you need a way to prevent the axle from moving side-to-side, and that's the reason for the panhard bar. If the axle has moved that much, then there's an issue with the panhard bar.
