Zabeard F150 Traction Bars!
After months of waiting on Ballistic Fab parts, Zach finally received the much anticipated items and sent me the traction bars that he fabricated for my truck.
I installed them today and so far it is a night and day difference. My F150 is running 3" rear blocks, 35" tires on 4.56 gears and a Detroit locker. I get a lot of axle/spring wrap as you can imagine. Even when I roll to a stop, the springs rock back and forth. After installing the traction bars, the ride is a HUGE improvement. Not only is the truck WAY more solid on acceleration, but even when I come to a stop and accelerate through a turn with the locker. The Detroit causes the rear end to bind, and with the 3" rear blocks the rear end developed a tendency to walk around on me. So far it has been rock solid with the traction bars. I took a (crappy) phone picture after installing them this afternoon.
