Keep the rear axle in your 2020-2023 GM Silverado/Sierra 2500HD/3500HD planted under all conditions with a set of Traction Bars. 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. 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. Most traction bars feature a steel tube construction, with one end installing onto the frame and the other onto the rear axle. Traction bars are fairly simple in design, once installed a solid link is created between the axle housing and frame to prevent axle rotation.
Depending on vehicle application, fabrication skills, and preference, traction bars can come as a complete kit or a universal kit that requires fabrication. Hardware kits and complete traction bars are available from industry leading brands like HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, Longhorn Fab Shop, and more! In most cases, a short bed truck will require a 72" length and a long bed truck will use an 86". 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 are available in different lengths that are depending on the cab and bed length of your truck.
