make sure when you mark the holes that you are aware of the little nut on the other side...we didnt see that and had a hell of a time getting one side mounted...

What else are you expecting them to do? Dance a jig? lol. They are made to reduce wheel hop.

so yeah i used to work for JD. there is one problem with their t bars. they limit rear articulation. my buddy had them on his 04 and they worked well accept for the limit in travel. if it aint a hard wheeler it will be fine, just be aware of this

Yeah, but if your running a stock setup anyway, not like your dealing with a load of articulation anyway. Mine have worked great so far.

most any traction bar is going to do that.. due to the fact it is trveling in a different arc then the leaf spring.. but the way they are designed it seems as if it would be minimal.. maybe a thinker softer bushing on the front would help with the articulation loss..
