Keep the rear axle in your 1994-1997 Ford F250/350 planted under all conditions with a set of Traction Bars. 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. Traction bars are fairly simple in design, once installed a solid link is created between the axle housing and frame to prevent axle rotation. Most traction bars feature a steel tube construction, with one end installing onto the frame and the other onto the rear axle. Wheel hop and axle wrap can cause more than just traction loss, in many cases damage to driveshafts, yokes, suspension parts, and differential components is common. Axle wrap or wheel hop happen when stored energy in the suspension from axle rotation is suddenly released and causes the axle to bounce up and down violently, resulting in a loss of traction.
Depending on vehicle application, fabrication skills, and preference, traction bars can come as a complete kit or a universal kit that requires fabrication. Typically, a short bed truck will run a bar around 72" in length and a long bed will run an 86" bar. Hop over to XDP and get your rear axle under control with a set of high-quality traction bars! Traction bars are the perfect addition for any competition-built or street performance pickup. Traction bars come in various lengths depending upon the cab and bed configuration of your truck. Traction bars and hardware kits are available from industry leading brands like Longhorn Fab Shop, HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, and more!
