88-04 Ford Dual Link Traction Bar System
Sky's Off Road Design's new Ford Dual Link Traction Bar System is now Available!
What it is: A traction bar system designed for function and looks. Puts lost power to the ground!
What it does: Helps eliminate axle wrap in stock to highly modified trucks. High horse power motors, big lifts, and soft suspensions all benefit from a traction bar system.
What it includes: 2 non triangulated traction bars, 1 per side of the vehicle, 2 bolt on frame brackets, and 2 weld on axle brackets. Kit traction bars are based on vehicle length.
Sky's Traction bar kit will help many vehicles by controlling the wrap of the axle, and fatigue on the leaf springs. Traction bars can save fuel by getting power to the ground, restores traction by not allowing leaf twist. They can even help save tires by less slip on the road under take off, such as hard acceleration from a stop light.
Design of the system is slightly unique as the bars are moved outside the frame in order to line up directly under the leaf springs. This helps control axle walk common to single bar systems mounted under the frame and inside the leaf springs.
Bars use polyurethane bushings and 9/16ths bolts. Brackets are laser cut CNC formed a36 PO steel in 1/4 and 3/16ths thickness. Link bars are 2" x .120 round tube with 2.25 x.250 wall DOM bushing casings.
Frame brackets and traction bars available raw steel or black powder coat. Powder coat will add a week to shipping lead time generally. We also offer an adjustable version with 1.250 chrome moly hiem joints. This option is available in all forms as well.
Do to the many combinations of options and lengths, traction bars are generally built to order and will take aprx 1 week plus any current production lead time noted on the main page. We can also build them to your length as needed, this would be special order and needs to be processed via e-mail.
Kit is based on 88-97 Ford trucks, 99-04 Super duty F-250 F-350 Excursion, though it will fit many others. Axle brackets are designed around a 3.5 inch axle tube.
Made 100% in the USA by Sky Mfg!
There is a $20 additional shipping fee added to this package because it is over length.
I have had a few questions regarding install, here is the low down!
The bars are super simple, and really they don't have a set perfect 1 way fits all install. Basically I bolt everything together, use a jack on the rear axle side of the brackets to hold them to the axle, should be vertical, hanging below the axle. I weld those on first, using an angle finder to insure they are the same. Then the upper brackets simply slide on the frame, mark your holes, drill and bolt. This must be done under weight of the truck, other wise the axle will not be positioned correctly.
