Make sure your rear axle stays planted in your 2016-2022 GM Colorado/Canyon 2.8L Duramax LWN with a set of Traction Bars from XDP. 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. Traction bars are typically built from steel tubing with one end mounted to the frame and the other to the axle. If your vehicle is experiencing wheel hop or axle wrap under hard acceleration, then traction bars are what you need. 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.
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". 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!
