Autofabs’ 2-Link kits are not just traction bars. They have been designed to eliminate wheel hop, keep the pinion angle correct, and keep the rear end located from side to side while not restricting wheel travel. This kit is made for the early Twin-I-Beam trucks with 2 1/4″ wide rear leaf springs. Note: If your truck has the double shackle rear design that will be eliminated. It is for towing purposes only and not used for the off-road rear suspension.
The front hangers are made from 3/16 pickled in oil steel and the bars are 1 1/4″ X .120 4130 seamless Chromoly tubing. Each end of the bar has our special shaped outside sleeves with our unique hourglass bushings that keep the bar in place without sacrificing the full range of movement. These 2-Link kits along with our custom springs are the foundation of our 18″ rear travel kits. All hardware is included. Welding is required to install axle tabs. We also recommend removing rivets from the front spring hanger and replacing them with grade 8 bolts. The 2 link front bracket locates and bolts to the frame where rivets are removed from the cross member to frame connection. Now weld the 2 link bracket and front spring hangers together forming a stronger corner style bolt-on bracket.
