Ladder bars!

I need them BADD. I want to do a burnout or squeal the tires off the line with out the truck boncing like a ball. Ive already killed many U joints, Drive shaft carrier bearings, shocks, and drive shafts! (custom HD one built thats holding up good) because of it.


Who makes them???. Is there Kits that i can Make my own from.

it is great to have them, however it is going to ride stiff.

That is correct, prevents axle wrap. The longer you make them the better and the nicer the ride. If they are made short then they bind when the suspension is actuated and it makes for a stiffer ride, see how long the ones on the Green truck I posted are.

Make your own you can get the parts ..
always make a ladder bar with a shackle in the front so you won't hurt the ride and also won't break parts.
