before spending the coin on traction bars, go buy a set of $20 spring clamps, place them ~6" in front of the axle and see if that resolves your issue. It helped tremendously on my old lifted GMC

I believe it is just to reduce/eliminate axle wrap and maybe wheel hop.

Mainly wheel hop from more power added via tuning!

If you're not lifted or are lifted but don't have a tall block between the axle and leaf springs, they are unnecessary.

I completely disagree! Axle wrap happens on most leaf suspension regardless if its lifted or not.

I guess a pan hard bar wouldn't do anything one a leaf spring truck either huh?
