will they put added stress onto the rear torque boxes, or do they transfer the torque to somewhere else to lessen wheel hop?
anyone have a set on their Stang?

Dan,

Thousands of stangs use Lakewood Traction Bars, including my daughter's. Yes they push up on the front of the spring near the eye, and no I haven't seen any problem with the torque boxes. Don't worry about that.

Dan I be wrong(yes I'm wrong sometimes)but I think Steve using the bolt on bars not the clamp on ones.The bolt on's go for like $99.00 they bolt on to the leaf spring bolts.

Dan,

Yes, I meant the bolt on bars. I have no experience with the clamp-ons.
