Traction Bars For Lowered Suspension

Hello All,
This Is My First Post! Currently I Am Working On An 87 Chevy Truck Shortbox, I've Have Dropped The Suspension 3" In The Front And 5" In The Back. Which Means The Leaf Springs That Mounted On Top Of The Axle Now Are Fliped And Mounted Below The Axle. So Now The Tracktion/slapper Bars That You Can Buy For The Truck Won't Work. Is There Any Other Tracktion Bars That Will Work With A Lowering Kit? Like Maybe For A Car With Leaf Springs Below The Axle.

Ed

Or you can make your own cal-tracs and save much $$$. I think it's been discussed here before (maybe chevytalk.com)

Not yet. But I will after I get my car back on the road. I think you should be able to make some and be very happy with them.

Consider something like the mid 60s mopar super stock springs, easy to build your own.... I did. Not perfect but I don't like stuff hanging out under there. Stealthy.
