What prevents the axle from not wrapping still. It looks like the axle could still twist with out having a top and bottom points preventing wrap. I don't know, I'm just asking questions because I'm in the market and I want something that works and not cost and arm and a leg for a work truck lol

The mount on the axle is suppose to be facing downwards. So that the axle wont wrap. But I am guessing your having ground clearance issues. If that is the problem, mount it on the top. Leaving it where it is, won't do much because the kit is bolted on and the axle will still pivot. I welded mine on but I have a 5.5" rear lift in the rear to mount on top of axle.

I'm trying to verify with jody from top gun customs now on if I installed correctly, I will know shortly, they definitely helped the axle from moving and improved my shifting at WOT!!! Very well made and super heavy duty

They should have been mounted toward the bottom instead of the front. And that would also move the frame mounts back some. I mean they will probably help where they are, but just not as much like they are suppose to.
