what traction bars

What traction bars do you all use with the excursion? What happens to ride quality? I know its no caddie, but I have 37 on a 6 inch lift and use it to pull toy hauler plus family around. Local shop recommend pro comp bars for price and mid axel mount. What have you used and lengths? Thanks.

T bars did nothing for my ride quality, but helped a lot when leaving a stop light pulling heavy load, Thats in my opinion the best use for them. I ran pro comp.

IIRC I was thinking the mounting locations with pro comp made it unadvisable to pull goosenecks with the bars on, not sure on this but worth checking out. I've been looking for a set for mine too.

Kinda hard to pull a gooseneck with an Excursion. :what: Although I suppose anything is possible. :p

Thanks guys I was looking at ProComm too. I was hoping would help get things going without twisting everything up. Shop said might add binding of springs and make ride more harsh? Wondering if it was that noticeable?

It may a little bit. If you dont want to compromise ride but still have traction bars. The best figment is a 3point attach. Over under on the axle and a shackle mount on the frame. They are pricey though. Rize makes a very nice looking set.
