just swapped in the d60 from and f350 into my f250. i have 4 inch lift springs up front and the trac bar from the 350 seems quite useless with the lift, cause it has no droop left, it bottoms out on the trac bar bracket on the axle. do i even need the trac bar if so what do ya reccomend

Some may disagree, but I would ditch the trac-bar altogether. Leaf sprung Dodge, GM, and older Fords never used one. Take it out and see what happens.

If it happens to be unstable, you can correct it by reversing the spring shackle. This makes the front spring eye the fixed end, and puts the shackle at the rear. ORU makes a kit that looks easy to copy <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

already drove it, seems ok. the oru kit isnt bolt on for pre 87 trucks cause they are not boxed on the front of the frame.

just to let ya know i had to use the track bar. whithout it when i hit a bump in the road the whole axle would start shaking side to side, felt like i was driving on squeare tires. i put the track bar on and it stopped, guess i need it

i have a yj with front shackles 4 inch springs soa on fullwidth axles and no trac or sway bars never had a prob. i think it has somthing to do with the shackle design and the weight of the ford
