Not sure what you are asking for but I think you mean 'ladder' traction bars. They get that name because they resemble a ladder with two side rails and several stiffening rungs. Not sure if they carry ladder bars specifically for your car but Jegs and Summit both carry universal ladder bars that can be adapted to any car.

Check out these Lakewood bolt on bars for GM.

IMHO, if you have coil springs on your 68, you don't need traction bars. The bars Chevy used are long and rigidly mounted to the rear end. I ran low 15's with a stock 73 454, TH400 with a stock converter and home made shift kit, two piece drive shaft, 3.73 posi, and radial tires. This was all in a 68 Suburban. Caught a lot of small block Chevelles and Camaros off guard. These bars were also used by NASCAR racers for a lot of years (maybe still do).

Yes, basicly a big speedway Cup cars do.

Based on your discripotion it is hard for me to tell if you are looking for a "Ladder Traction Bar" or a "Lateral Track Bar". Your truck came from the factory with a Track Bar (aka Panhard Bar). It is what holds the axle from moving side to side.
