Post Traction bars

Anyone know if lakewood universal tracking bars are any good or should I just shell out the money for some competition enginering bars?

Go with the comp engineering. The Kit is much stronger and keeps the rearend much more stable under load. The Lakewoods are bolton and if they hang under the spring, or wherever the snubber comes to rest on, then they would be useless.

i dont know anyhting about comp. eng. bars but i have some SSM bars and they work great. It makes such a huge difference in traction. It makes the ride stiffer tho, but nothing that tortures you.

Ditto on the SSM bars, but I would go with their lift bars. They are a bit pricey, but they are about the best traction upgrade you can make.
