Track bars on non lifted truck?

Will track bars fit fine on a non lifted truck?

Re: Track bars on non lifted truck?

Depends on how much it is lifted/leveled if you need aftermarket track bar. All solid front axle ford and dodge have them OEM since Dana is the manufacturer. If its lifted a lot then an adjustable is needed.

i think he is asking about traction bars(ladder bars) instead of a trac bar. but i might be wrong.
OP i'm not sure but i don't see why not

Re: Track bars on non lifted truck?

LOL. Well all three are much different from each other.

To the OP.
Track bar is mounted parallel to the front axle to prevent bump steer
Traction bars usually attach to bottom of leaf springs and help with axle wrap by a rubber stop that hits close to the front shackle of the rear leaf spring.
Ladder bars also are for axle wrap and pretty much eliminate it, by adding brackets to the axle and the frame for a ridgid/rough ride.

Lol. Just look the names up in Summit Racing or Jegs and you will see the difference.
