Re: track bar

I was okay when I had stock rear leaves with an overload. I did have wheelhop, which is annoying, but I didn't destroy my springs in the year that I wheeled with stock springs spring over.
Recently, I made the swap to YJs in the rear, and rears up front. YJs are long and soft, and you need a traction bar if you're going to wheel them. I've heard of them sagging 2-3" after one or two wheeling trips, due to spring wrap.

I just put in a Breeze Traction bar this weekend, and took it out for a test. I was really happy that I didn't have wheelhop, and it was an easy install.

Re: track bar

<center>If you decide you need one I can make you one. Really strong and easy to install. Can withstand 800hp at a 3500rpm stall. I have sold a few of these with no problems back even one for the drag car stated previously. Fully adjustable and guarenteed on worksmanship. Did I say it is cheaper than the others?

Re: track bar

If I decide to go to a hybrid with the stronger calmini axle shafts will I still be able to do that if I weld a track bar on? I know no matter what bar I get its gonna have to atleast be welded onto the axle.

Re: track bar

The bracket on the axle would have to be cut back off to make it work on another axle unless you make the hybrid out of that housing. Or I could send another axle bracket to you when needed. (if you were to buy mine)
