the cheap way .

If you have a welder and drill. The 60's style tubular under rider bars, they run parallel and the same length as the rear leaf springs. I saw some of the newer suv's in the bone yard, they had tubular rear suspension locating bars with rubber bushings in the ends, If you are lucky you might find some heavy enough and the right length, or cut and reweld. reweld position always mount to the rear, fab a bracket to weld to your leaf spring plate and make a front mount. Not the latest tech but cheap.

The old slapper bars seem to work, that's what I'm running one of my 55's but I just wanted to see if anyone's got crazy with the welder and made some kind of homemade caltrac lol.
