Re: GP: traction bars

I like the design but the bent plate was the first thing I noticed. I have nuts from a spring shop which are twice as long as standard nuts which might help alleviate the problem if the spring plate is not replaced. If not, a heavy walled spacer would help also. Have you had any clearance issues? What sway bar do you have?

Re: GP: traction bars

i mentioned earlier i think about changing the order of nuts on this. what i did was go from stock leaf plate to lock washers/nuts, then a washer, then the traction bar plate, then a nut and lock washer to hold that in and it spaced it decently that the plate did not bend.
i have not had any clearance issues besides going over a few massive speedbumps we got around town. i have a xtreme swaybar in the rear.. i know krupa is loving his setup and that i know of has plenty of clearance also with a swaybar

Re: GP: traction bars

The bent plate thing concerns me some. I'm sure the solution is easy, but I'd like to see the solution figured out at manufacturing. With that, if these will work with a Belltech rear sway bar, I'm in. Any chance for another color for powder coating?

Re: GP: traction bars

Look at my pictures in my thread. I'm running a Belltech sway bar with these traction bars. I also have the revised version with the extensions on the plates so the plates don't bend when you tighten the u bolts.

Re: GP: traction bars

why not just use the original gm plates with ears/tabs welded onto them. That's how they are on the caltrac's I have.

Thank you for answering my question, but I wasn't interested in digging through the threads of the people that may or may not have installed these.

He said there wont be a powdercoating option this time.. I did not have a chance to reply back as to why

Re: GP: traction bars

I'll get ahold of him, is there any more interest in these again? Maybe I can get him to make another 5 or 10 pairs
