DIESEL 101

TRACTION BARS

As a diesel owner you love the power that your truck can produce. The more power you add the better, right? Well, more power wreaks havoc to your driveline, axles, and suspension. When adding this extra power to your truck, you need to make sure everything is functioning, as it should in the rear. Installing traction bars on your ride will help keep the power on the ground, as it should be.

 

When you mash on the pedal, the torque tries to create that S shape in the leaf spring. When it bounces back, it causes the wheels to hop up and down and lose the traction to the ground. This is a problem known as axle wrap. If not controlled it will tear up anything from your transmission all the way back to your axle shafts. Don't let this damage happen to you.

 

Back in the 60s and 70s, muscle cars used traction bars to eliminate this axle wrap and to keep the tires planted on the ground for maximum traction to get down the track. Today we are seeing fewer traction bars on muscle cars and more on trucks.

 

Traction bars are typically rigid bars of steel that connect to your rear axle and then travel forward and connect to the truck frame. This long support bar allows the rear axle to move up and down like normal, but the extra length being mounted to the frame keeps your axle from wrapping which will keep your tires planted on the ground.

 

Pro Comp and Tuff Country offer lateral traction or ladder bars that are engineered to fit your truck perfectly. The bars are designed in a way so you don't have to give up ground clearance or suspension articulation. They are finished off in a black powder coat so they will look good for years to come.

 

Stop the axel wrap from happening by installing some traction bars. Your truck will be happy to keep the tires on the ground.

    With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
