I built one using a Tractor top link from a three point hitch. You need the truss! My housing is cracked around the centersection, just enough that it leaks the fluid out gradually. I built another housing but havent put it in yet. That style bar does work and it works pretty well. My springs are wasted and it doesnt wrap since I put the bar in. The last time that I wrapped up the springs before the bar, I broke the rear flange on my crappy AZ drivelines driveshaft, needless to say I carry a spare flange now also. It does open the rear missing links about two inches when you drop the clutch in low range...That is the only drawback really, besides the cracked rear housing.
