I was just wondering if getting the Breeze Axle Spring Pads will make a real difference with axle wrap. They are longer than usual according to the web site at 6 inches. I am going to be going SPOA soon and was wondering if ordering these would be better than picking them up from a local retailer.

Thanks

I have to figure out how to make one. If anyone has plans, especially for Toyota axles, let me know. I have a hard time just with the theory but thats also cause no one I know has 1

Somebody you know has one, you've just not seen it yet.


It makes a HUGE difference with 4.16 gears. Before you could watch the pinion fly up and down. Now noething.

After doing some resarch I chose the Breeze anti wrap bar because of it's beef and $219 price tag. I figured it would cost me at least $100 to piect the parts together, make mistakes, spend a full day or two to doing it myself and still not be sure if I got it right. The kit was cheap enough that it just made sense. It also has a really cool joint that allows full flex of your suspension while still preventing wrap.

Ok so basically we have a bracket to mount to the axle, a traingulated link, a bracket to connect to the frame and a.....johnny joint or something similar? Correct? Anything magic about the Johnny joint end or no? Heck..is it that easy?


Would love a closer pic of that end.

BTW..rat..sorry I never replied but your adapters are working out great. Actually I sort of booty fabbed things since I was unable to get the rear flange off before a trip and ended up using only 2 bolts to hold the rear on, and they liked to break, but overall very nice quality product!! I finally got the flange off this wekend (gawd what a pita!!!) and even after beating the adapoter up it mounted right up as it was supposed to..very nice

Joe that is not a Johny joint just a standard bushing. A JJ is not neeed if you look at that point you will see the bushing has a solid bar that inserts into the trac-bar itself to allow full movement also has a grease fitting. I will see if I have any other pics. I am glad to here the adapters worked for you...

After doing it and understanding better how it works I would have no problem fabbing up my own if I had the materials and ability to weld.

Dig camera is out of batteries right now. I'll try to get some pics in the next day or two. Better pic. http://www.northcoastoffroad.com/images/trackbar.jpg

WARNING! When attaching the bar to the axle housing. The breeze setup welds that giant ring aroung the axle housing itself. BE VERY CAREFUL HERE if you heat up the housing too much you will warp it.

Joe remember that freaky popping noise coming from my rear end last time we were @ K-rocks together. I had just put on the anti wrap bar that week and warped the housing. Locker did not like the warped housing and was popping.

I did manage to heat it up and bend it back into shape but it was not fun and took several tries.

Cool..I really just need some ideas on the frame side bushing, the rest is simple enough.
