Kicker Shocks

Anyone try those kicker shocks that mount on top of your leafsprings to help prevent
axlerap? I was wanting something to help prevent axlerap but not take any ground
clearance away.

Re: Kicker Shocks

Bad news : Kicker shocks won't PREVENT axle wrap. It may just reduce it a little.

The only true way to totally eliminate axle wrap is to fabricate a bar which will eliminate any pinion movement. I've seen some that go from the top of the differential right along the drive shaft to a crossmember, or part of a 2- or 3- or 4-link system...
