Are you power braking at every stop or something? The bars stop axle wrap so both tires are planted on the ground evenly. No more wheel hop during a "spirited" start. It also really helps with cornering wheel spin.

Just get them already. They are cheap and I have never seen a bad review on them. I love mine.

i too have these on my truck and i love them. they do hurt flex just a tad, but not enough to be a problem. only thing i dont like is where the bar attaches to the bracket on the axle, i was considering replacing that with a heim joint. any thoughts?

it wont stop spinning tires, it will stop axle hop when the spinning tires get a grip then release the grip. ive thought of making my own, i may just buy a set. cant seem to get any "fab-time". they sure are pricey though!

That is up to you. There are enough reviews on here to decide for yourself.

For $99 bucks you can't go wrong/
