Keep the rear axle in your 2003-2007 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. Wheel hop and axle wrap don't only cause traction loss, in some cases they also result in major component damage to driveshafts, yokes, suspension, and even internal differential parts. Wheel hop and axle wrap occur when the stored energy in the suspension is suddenly released causing the axle to bounce up and down violently, resulting in traction loss. Traction bars are typically built from steel tubing with one end mounted to the frame and the other to the axle. 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.
Depending on your vehicle, preference, and fabrication skills, traction bars can be purchased as a bolt-on kit or universal kit that requires welding. Traction bars are an excellent add-on for any street performance or competition-built truck. Traction bars and hardware kits are available from industry leading brands like Longhorn Fab Shop, HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, and more! Hop over to XDP and get your rear axle under control with a set of high-quality traction bars! Traction bars come in various lengths depending upon the cab and bed configuration of your truck. In most cases, a short bed truck will require a 72" length and a long bed truck will use an 86".
