Traction bar

Why couldnt you run a short bar or two from center of axle to frame or even a cross bar to tie to prevent axle wrap. My other traction bars are 6' or better on my 08 but if not racing all your really trying to do is hold axle still ?

Or even a shock or steering stabilizer to just provide enough break to make it lose the harshness

I thought you wanted the traction bars at the same angle as your driveshaft? So as the leafs compress, everything is moving together...

that is true if we are trying to aid traction or fight something other than the axle shift because of there being so much torque. I think for purely a driving(non racing) application that if you put a steering stabilizer on it on top side of the axle and mounted in front of the axle then it would create enough resistance to eliminate the harsh shifting on the first to second shift. I'll have some free time this weekend i'll fab one up and try it out and see what happens.
