Traction bars eliminate wheel hop and driveline angle problems during launch. Traction bars, or lift bars, are available for coil spring vehicles too. While coil spring lift bars work in a different way than leaf spring traction bars, you still get added traction by moving more vehicle weight onto the rear tires. >>> By moving the front axle 10'' forward & the rear axle 14'' forward. Use a straight axle on the front w/ either leafs or coils, I like leafs better & jack up the car 2' in the front. This sounds like my 1st car= '55 chev straight axle drag car w/ a 301 in it. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
