It may or may not fix the bucking, usually the bucking we get on higher hp tunes at light throttle is a FRP surge due to the HPFP VCV and PCV valves not agreeing for some odd reason. Not all trucks do it, hopefully traction bars will fix your problem, if it doesnt, you will still be glad you done them

Picture 5 looks like the traction bar and driveline are at different angles?

Home made traction bars

I couldn't tell you if it looked wrong or right... But it looks good to me! What's the parts list for this? I'd like to fab my own simple ones like you have done, ofcourse I'd like pmf bars but don't have the coin set aside for them at the time. A little project like this is right up my alley!

I was thinking about building a set of my own so i was googling around a bit and ran across this post.

Curious to see how these have worked out for you. They look great but i'm curious to how they perform. Thanks
