I don't know if this is a dumb question or not. On my Slide-a-Link bars, there is a little bar behind the leaf spring bushing. Does this bar go on top of or under the leaf spring? Here is a pic of Cal-Tracs. The bar in question is in the same place on my bars; right behind the bushing.

Gracias. We figured we'd get out there, and it would fit both ways. This makes it easier.

The tires are 26x8.5 ET Drags on 15x8 rims. My 60' time on that 13.47 run was a 1.837. I think I was launching at about 4200 then. Now that I have traction bars, I will be launching as high as the track can hold. 5500 rpm launches, here I come!!!
