i recently installed some homemade tractions bars and im not sure how to adjust them. I used the same setup as dzljim's website (great site by the way) and my question is should the bars be adjusted out (pushing on the axle) or adjusted in (pulling on the axle)? I have some pics loaded but not all of them, i will work on that. The bars did seem to help with my wheel hop problem, which was the reason for installing them but i have no clue if they are adjusted properly. I seem to have plenty of suspention travel, however i was towing about 12000 lbs. the day after i installed them and i noticed a cracked weld on one bracket on the frame (i will post more pics). I am not what caused this (bad weld, to much weight, not adjusted properly?) I would think that since the bars allow for nearly full suspention travel that i would be able to drive the truck normally but maybe im wrong. Can you adjust for a heavy load? The bars are not really adjusted tight in either direction at the current time. Thanks for the input.
