traction block system...

well after reading another thread and seeing massive axle wrap, i decided i want to look in to traction bars...

my rear is lifted with a lift block and a stock block stacked together with the stock spring...

any ways i came across these

http://www.oneupoffroad.com/ouoparts...ionblocks.html

i like them! i could keep my stock springs(wich i want to do), get rid of the "legos" and add tractions arms all in one shot...

does anyone have an experience with these? pros/cons? anyone know the cost? i couldnt find it on the site, i imagine its up there but might be worth it

Re: traction block system...

I'm running a custom set of OUO bars on my race truck, and the quality is second to none. In fact, I was so impressed that I got a second set for my '03.

Here's a photo:

I agree the workmanship is awsome, the power in the above video is nice but give a 16 year girl a CC SD on 38's that likes to run over anything in her way and you really get too see how strong and durable they are

The most impressive thing about them is the ride is not harsh like some of the setups out there and you get as much articulation as you do without them.

Yep! There's a huge difference in ride quality between these and the CalTracs I had on before.

Re: traction block system...

Is 4" the smallest they are available in?

What does the front mount look like?

02 F250 4x2 362rwhp/760rwtq
13.942 @ 98.44mph
Dp Tuner
Van Turbo w/ Wicked Wheel
Swamps 175/146

So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause.
