Coldwater, MI: BDS Suspension adds to its lineup of vehicle specific mounting solutions for revolutionary RECOIL traction bar setups with new mounting kits specifically designed for the 2019-2020 RAM 3500 trucks. This new mounting kit are designed for bolt-on installation at both the frame and axle built from high strength 1/4" steel, and finished in a gloss black powdercoat. With the brackets installed a set of the RECOIL traction bars can be bolted in place offering improved traction and the freedom to adjust the internal 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 RECOIL traction bars are built to the highest standards for the ultimate performance on and off-road. The bars are 60" long, 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. 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. These 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 RECOIL traction bars from BDS Suspension.
