BDS Suspension adds to its lineup of RECOIL traction bars with new kits designed specifically for the 2007-2016 Toyota Tundra trucks. Similar to existing kits, these patent pending traction bars use heavy wall construction and a full floating design that won't bind up the suspension during articulation. The new mounting kit is built from 1/4" steel and is an easy bolt-on install only requiring a few holes to be drilled at the frame. At one end, the bars use a forged flexed end that can be adjusted to load or unload the 3000lb rated compression spring at the other end. This revolutionary design controls axle wrap and give your Tundra better traction when towing, racing, 4wheeling or daily driving on the road. These traction bars will fit stock and lifted trucks.

RECOIL Traction Bars: Earlier this year BDS Suspension introduced the revolutionary spring loaded traction bar system, the RECOIL traction bar. This patent pending design was engineered to improve traction and limit axle wrap without negatively affecting suspension travel or ride quality. BDS has expanded its lineup to now include specific mounting kits for the 2007-2016 Toyota Tundra 2WD/4WD trucks. These next generation traction bars offer you the freedom to tune the spring tension for optimal performance on-road, off-road, towing, or competition pulling. These traction bars can be used on stock height or lifted trucks and work with both lift blocks and replacement leaf spring kits. They use a full floating design that won't bind up allowing the full range of wheel travel without limiting articulation.
These new RECOIL traction bars are built to the highest standards for the ultimate performance on and off-road. The bars are fabricated from 2" OD x 3/16'' wall steel tubing with a threaded bung welded in toward the axle and a CNC machined end at the frame. The axle mount uses the tried and true BDS large forged flex end and jam nut to take whatever abuse you throw at it. Utilizing a forged housing with large 1-1/4" -12 threaded shank, a single sided snap ring and 1-piece flex ball, the flex ends are capable of up to 15-degrees of misalignment in either direction. At the frame end the bar uses a durometer specific polyurethane bushing and free floats in the traction bar utilizing a pair of dual stage internal compression springs and UHMW polyurethane bearings. The main spring has a 3000lb spring rate. Both ends are greaseable and serviceable. Fully assembled the RECOIL traction bars are 60" long and mount to the vehicle using fabricated 1/4" steel brackets. Bracket kits are vehicle specific. The frame brackets install by drilling mounting holes for the brackets while the axle brackets install on the spring pad and secure using existing u-bolts. The traction bars and mounting brackets use a durable gloss black powdercoat finish.
These new RECOIL traction bars are built to the highest standards featuring quick and easy adjustment while installed on the vehicle. To adjust spring tension, use the supplied spanner wrenches at the axle to loosen the jam nut. From there the main bar can be rotated to load or unload the springs at the frame side of the bar. Using the concave end of the wrench handle against the frame end check the location of the end of the main bar in relation to the notches on the wrench to verify the load on the springs, the shorter the distance the more loaded the springs are. Repeat this process on the other traction bar and use the wrenches to tighten down the jam nuts and you are ready to go! Join the revolution with the next generation RECOIL traction bars from BDS Suspension.
