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.

Additional Information:

If you're planning on towing an overloaded bumper pull trailer we highly recommend airbags.  The excess tongue weight will flex the brackets on the frame as the suspension is cycling and ruin them. Any trailer over 2500 pounds, 500 tongue weight will require air bags. These bars are not adding towing capacity, they are to control unloaded axle wrap.

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.

Powder coat is only offered on the traction bars, brackets are not powder coated because they can be welded to the frame. Traction bars are built to order, this means are non refundable without a restock fee from the minute they are ordered.
