I need some tips on how to install the traction bars from Larry,thanks again Larry.
They are the South Side lift bars.
I know they replace my spring plates.
#1 dose any thing go between them and the leafs?

#2 Dose it matter what size Ubolts I have,or do they all work.I have the 8" with the smaller tube ends.
Do the 3"bolts have a different bolt pattern.

#3 There are some shims that go on the end were it bolts to the front of the leaf.How do I know to use the shims or not.

#4 any tips or help with these would be great.With my back the way it is I hope to only have to get under the once before Friday.

Scoop,

Yes size matters (that's what the honest GRRRLs tell me). Are the bars made for 3" u-bolts? Measure from the start of one hole to the start of the other for a center to center measurement. They are probably 3", so you'll have to put a 9" in it or egg shape the holes so your little ones (u-bolts) will fit.

Sorry bout that Ron! I only have one small rear in my life and it aint in a car, and it mine either , just use your spring plates as a guide and make the holes line up.
