That wasnt on my truck was it? I have watched video of my runs to see if my bars are bending but havent seen anything yet. There is a good video on Mikes youtube acount of Leons traction bars bent so far under load they almost touch the ground.

No, it was the other red 2nd Gen that had the left side bar bend. I found two pics, (night and without flash so the second one shows a lot of motion) the first shows the bar straight and the second when he started to pull you can actually make out the wave in the bar. I don't know if it went back into shape after the pull on this run. But I do remember seeing that thing tweaked

i was thinkin it was a green or blue truk..but it might have been the red one..it was doin some serious bending tho bout halftrack...

i think thats part of the length discussion we had on another post. too long? or mtd too far forward. but the short one swill bind. my racecar once had homemade ladders..they bound up like crazy and ruined the car..i eventually took em off for a pinion snubber

I would like to 4-link my rear end... going to the center of the axle on top like a "V" back up to the frame!

The blue second gen was the one with bent bars. They didnt bend back either...


kydmaxpuller, isn't a heavy walled DOM tubing stronger than solid stock?

We did it to a lifted CTD and it worked great. no axle wrap! Traction bars to the bottom of the axle like mine and then the two on top running to the center above the diff. plus if you break and axle your not likely to rotate the diff and cause more carnage.

Technically, if you're 4-linking the rear you're doing away with the leaf springs. The only issue would be the fuel tank and the upper arms in that double triangulated setup

You can use 4 link with leaf springs and even solid ladder bars, the eazy way is to make the ladder bars solid to the axle and make slip rings for the axle housing to rotate freely in on the spring perch.

The leaf springs hold the truck up and thats it the bars hold the axle in position. But there is no binding between the ladder bar or spring.
