Make sure your rear axle stays planted in your 2018-2021 Ford F150 with a set of Traction Bars from XDP. If your vehicle is experiencing wheel hop or axle wrap under hard acceleration, then traction bars are what you need. 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 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. 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. Most traction bars feature a steel tube construction, with one end installing onto the frame and the other onto the rear axle.
Depending on vehicle application, fabrication skills, and preference, traction bars can come as a complete kit or a universal kit that requires fabrication. Traction bars are the perfect addition for any competition-built or street performance pickup. Hop over to XDP and get your rear axle under control with a set of high-quality traction bars! Traction bars and hardware kits are available from industry leading brands like Longhorn Fab Shop, HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, and more!
