Could be a dumb question but hear me out
I've been reading a lot of issues with track bars and leveling kits.
Why do our trucks need track bars? I know the coil spring front ends have to have them to keep the axle in place but why is there a need with a leaf spring front suspension that is a rigid mount?
This is why I ask. Semi's don't have them, school buses don't have them, delivery trucks don't have them etc. They are all solid axle, leaf sprung with a lot greater GVW than our trucks have.
Are the shackle bushing not rigid enough to aviod side to side movement?
