Make sure your rear axle stays planted in your 2007.5-2010 GM 2500HD/3500HD with a set of Traction Bars from XDP. 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. 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. Traction bars are typically built from steel tubing with one end mounted to the frame and the other to the axle. 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. 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.
Depending on your vehicle, preference, and fabrication skills, traction bars can be purchased as a bolt-on kit or universal kit that requires welding. In most cases, a short bed truck will require a 72" length and a long bed truck will use an 86". Hop over to XDP and get your rear axle under control with a set of high-quality traction bars! Traction bars are an excellent add-on for any street performance or competition-built truck. 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!
