Traction For Your Action
Rear wheelhop has been a problem for fullsize trucks rolling on big rubber. Traction bars are a common solution to the wheelhop dilemma. However, proper suspension geometry is seldom factored into traction-bar design. Superlift meets the challenge with its new line of Torque Max traction bars. Each set is specifically engineered for a given vehicle so that the traction bars' arc of travel is in sync with the rear springs' movement, maintaining proper suspension geometry during abrupt acceleration. Applications are currently available for many Chevy/GMC, Ford, and Dodge pickups.
