DT Profab Dodge Heavy Duty Track Bar UpgradePosted in How To on March 1, 2010 Comment (0)
The geometry and strength of your track bar is very important for proper vehicle handling. Ideally it should be oriented parallel to the steering drag link and horizontal to the ground when the vehicle is not moving.
Upgrading the track bar on your vehicle can significantly improve handling with both stock and modified suspensions. Many handling issues like steering vibration (AKA "death wobble") and looseness can be attributed to a weak or worn-out track bar.
We chose to use a DT-Profab heavy-duty track bar to upgrade our Dodge Ram project truck. DT-Profab has been making quality track bars for Dodge trucks since the years of the Gen II Ram. Besides being stronger and more durable than the OEM units, the DT-Profab bar is also rebuildable, resulting in a cost savings in the long run.
There are two different brackets available to use with the DT track bar: the 0- to 4-inch lift bracket and the 4-inch-and-up bracket. If you drastically alter the height of your truck, you can simply switch brackets and retain your rebuildable DT track bar.
