james duff traction bars

would the over the leaf traction bars fix the axel moving around causing the tires to smash my rear fender flares and cut them up? i was told it is because of the bell tech shackels. thanks

Duff only makes 2 versions for the Ranger, the standard and the special wider spacing for the LII axle. I have a new set of Duff LII brackets here at my desk and Duff's holes for the LII U-bolts measure just slightly less than 3 3/4" center to center.

finally got the bars, the way the front mounts up is it still gonna flex like before? it kinda seems like the way the bushings are its gonna tear them apart or bend the bracket offroad. also these can be used with the back having add a leaf and belltechs right? that alone seems like it will be pulling down on the front just sitting on the ground level.

Yes it will flex. I'm using mine with an add-a-leaf.
