With low-geared axles and high torque engines, soft long travel leaf springs can distort under power—this can cause damage to springs and break u-joints. Ordinary long tube, fixed mount traction bars limit travel as the rear axle cycles up and down because the axle also needs to move back and forth. Our new traction bar has a “V” frame designed center link for strength and utilizes a specially designed shackle to eliminate axle wrap. The bar runs between the mufflers, paralleling the drive line; protecting it. It also maintains proper u-joint and CV angles under power. The main bar attaches to a high clearance cross-member and shackle. The cross-member mounts up between the frame rails and helps protect your CV joint and output shaft from trail obstacles. Compatible with our Dual Exhaust system; other exhaust systems may require modification. Welding brackets to the differential housing is required. If you have a '77 Bronco or a later model 9" axle housing make sure you select the torque tamer for a '77 Bronco.

Last year we beefed up the design for Broncos with hotter motors and heavy right feet. We are confident that our Torque Tamer can handle the rowdiest of Bronco builds.
Please note: this is designed to work with a stock Bronco configuration. Please consult us before ordering if you have an aftermarket transmission, transfer case or axle. It is designed to work with all of our exhaust kits, some mods may be required to work with what is on your vehicle.
(Please leave us a note in the "Comments" section and let us know which axle you are using in your build. What year? Which axle? Full width or EB width?) Specifically, please let us know if you have a '77 rear differential.
We also added a new cross member for C-channel Broncos and axle brackets
for 8.8” axles. The combination also allows for an application for
78-79 Broncos with a factory 9”. See #5328 for 1978-96 Broncos.
