Crooked Rear Axle!
So I have kind of a big problem. I put a lift on my truck about three months ago and it been fine the only problem that with the added torque from my performance mods I get some nasty axle hop whenever I hit the gas. As I was driving home from college today it felt like the whole time I was driving the truck was sideways a little. So when I got home and checked it out I noticed the rear drivers side tire was about 10 inches from the front of the fender and only about 2 inches from the rear of the fender.
So I looked on the other side and could see the tire was sitting kind of sideways. I got under the truck and saw that on the drivers side the stock block (kit was add a leaf) had tried moving backwards with the axle but luckily the ubolts held so the axle didnt seperate from the leafs. So my axle is now crooked. I am assuming this happened from three months of intense axle hop creating forces trying to push the axle backwards which finally succeeded. I am assuming that the solution to this problem is to buy rear traction bars which I have found for $330 a pair. Im planning on taking apart the rear end tomorow to see if there is any damage such as the centering pin being broke n and if not I will straighten out the axle and install track bars later on when they come in.
So I think this is the solution but if any one else has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. And also if anyone knows of where trac bars for a 95 f250 can be found cheaper please let me know.
