    Shouldn't take more than a day to fab a set up. Between T Day and xmas I should have time and we can put a set together.

    A lot of $$$ and work but it worked awesome for controlling the axle but never stopped the dreaded freeway bounce when empty. Did you ever get the Deavers and Carli long travel bags? With the Deavers and Bags aired up I would think the axle wrap wouldn't be that bad.

    I looked at a lot of traction/ladder bars and realized I could be a better set for less money and they would work better. I think the best set I saw were from ORU but I think they are discontinued. The Fabtech ones look good too. Basically you want to keep the axle from twisting but still be able to travel forward and back as the srping arches and flattens. The bars that are fixed at both ends are bad and bind the suspension. You want one the is tied to the axle and rotates/swings at the frame side.

    If you find a set you like I can help install or we can build you a set if you feel like spending a weekend working on them. Let me know,

    Now what are you doing?

    Are you going for the look or do you have axle wrap that bad? I played around with quite a few set-ups on my CC Chevy and ultimately ended up four linking the rear with bags but not because of axle wrap. Did you get the Deaver springs?
