Yes, they work to prevent wheel hop. Do they make your tires get better traction? A resounding NO. They should really be called wheel hop bars, but that would sound too goofy *LOL*.

The Caltracs type that feed force back into the leaf spring...or the torque link type that soften the hit to the tires might help a bit but the underride/override Shelby type, as Johnpro states, just fight axle wrap under acceleration and braking. Which is a better traction situation than the axle a bouncin and twistin without control.
Go with the Traction-master (Shelby type), they will keep it more "original" and they eliminate wheel-hop - mine made a huge difference even when I had my piss-poor shot engine.
These have to be welded to the frame, there are others that bump the frame that are easier to install, I like the look of the traction-masters too.

Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
So I'm trying to bleed my brakes after replacing my master cylinder. I got a 65 6 cylinder with four wheel drums. I've gone around the car 5 times trying to get the brakes bled. I'm doing it with my wife doing the press, open, close, release method and got out all the big bubbles I could see...
I have a quick question. My new to me 1965 six cylinder convertible has factory Power Steering. It has a Eaton pump, (large round removable cover with a dipstick), or at least I think it is a Eaton. Just wondering when did Ford change the pumps, I was thinking or read somewhere...
Where to order a fuel level sender for my 66, 16 gallon tank, 5/16 fuel line? I see NDP sells a Scott Drake brand and I find Dorman elsewhere with similar price and shipping. Dorman has a 1 year guarantee. Does anyone have a preference?
