Yeah, Bean didn't like my "redneck bars" so he ditched them. Buck does a nice job, and I don't think it will have the bounce this year.

the design is basicly something dieselpower77 and I came up with after looking at a lot other people's at the local pulls and on the internet. the spring brackets acually came off of a dodge so I could flip the u-bolts upside down and use them to bolt the bars on with. I just drilled them out to accept bigger bolts becaus the dodge ones looked pretty flemsey to me.

I'd like to make them a little longer and a little more precision built but its not like I'm trying to hold 800 or 900hp to the ground either.

I run GDP Double "X" Bars powder coated Infantry Blue, I like them, But know that a Comp D member had one of them fail on his truck. I've heard that they discountinued them and are updating the design. Rumor?

Ok, been pondering this...standard long traction bars that run to the bottom of the frame and bottom of the axle resist the twist of the axle in conjunction with the front (fixed) end of the spring. The axle wants to rotate up, so the spring is in tension and the bar in compression. That will effectively kill wrap, but if you build them in an A frame attached to the top and bottom of the axle with the front hooked to a shackle or similar, it's going to lift at the mounting point vs. push forward at the mounting point like the long ones mounted only to the bottom of the axle. SO, here's my thought/question...if the A frame style is lifting the frame, isn't the other end forcing the axle down and planting the tires harder = better traction?

Here's an example. See the Wraptor. DIY4X are good people. http://www.diy4x.com/suspension.htm

I make these from DOM tubing, they have urethane bushings, provide lots of lift under load, the shackle maintains a good ride and some flexability. These maintain pinion angle, eliminate spring wrap and also transfer weight. A fixed front mounting point, without a housing floater will not allow the rear suspension to work without binding.

That's the best looking I've seen.

Have you ever drug them over a rock or anything? I'd like to build some that will stand some impact abuse. Probably have to end up looking like a desert race truck link.

frame and axle mounting points? 100% yes

The bars themselves? for drag racing and daily driving, no problem. For sledpulling is anyother question - time will tell

I will post when I get them on
