Resist WrappingIf you've got a leaf spring suspension-especially a spring-over-axlewrap, spring wrap, or whatever you choose to call it is a traction killer. It'll send your vehicle bouncing and will get your tires hopping right quick. Adding a traction bar is a Band-Aid repair, but it can be effective. A better alternative is to run a spring pack engineered to combat axlewrap, whether it's a spring-under, a spring-over with triple military wrap, half leaves, or any number of methods employed to minimize spring wrap. Look to custom spring manufacturers like National Spring or Deaver Spring and to reputable suspension companies like Rubicon Express, Skyjacker, Superlift, and so on for good alternatives that work.
