Traction bar design is relatively simple, once mounted they create a solid link between the frame and axle housing to help prevent the axle from rotating. A set of traction bars might be just what you need if you're dealing with wheel hop or axle wrap while under hard acceleration. Most traction bars feature a steel tube construction, with one end installing onto the frame and the other onto the rear axle.
