Axil wrap on my 2008 is reDickUles

Any suggestions on the best rear axil traction bars to prevent axil wrap on my F350 2008? These new longer leaf springs may ride nice but cause excessive axil wrap which I feel after stop and go. Thanks in advance for any help.

Rize makes a sick set of traction bars....Superlift makes a good set thats cheap....fabtech makes a decent set.... and the list goes on...the ones on my truck I think are running around a grand but you can have them customized to any design you want with any logo you want







oh yeah AXIL is spelled AXLE.......lol

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

I was going to go with the RIZE bars....but just REALLY like the OUO Traction Blocks so much better, plus I can keep my stock leafs and maintain factory ride and towing.
