Duff Traction Bars

Is it worth getting these on my rear end when I already have bilsteins? Will it be too stiff?

The traction bars wont stiffen up the ride. Their only job is to keep the axle from twisting(axle wrap).

Yes, they're worth installing. No, they wont effect the stiffness of the ride quality.

I've never used them or had them, but theoretically it's a much safer ride with lift blocks on the rear. I'm scared to ride in lifted trucks with out them bcuz it just seems so unstable.
