SUPERSTEER INTRODUCES REAR TRAC BAR FOR DODGE 2500-3500 TRUCKS

Axle side play is one of the leading causes of poor handing and stability in trucks, particularly while carrying a heavy load or while pulling a trailer. Lateral forces generated by cornering or side winds cause the leaf springs to deflect, creating a “tail wagging the dog” sensation.

The SuperSteer TracBar clamps to the rear axle housing on the passenger side, and bolts to theframe on the driver’s side, positively locating the rear axle. The result isvastly improved handling and stability. Designed to fit ’04-’08 Dodge Heavy Duty trucks, this SuperSteer Trac Bar bolts in place with no drilling or welding required. The kit includes powder-coated steel components,high-strength hardware and instructions. SuperSteer, (888) 898 3281; www.supersteersuperstop.com.
