Traditional traction or ladder bars are a great addition for those looking to gain needed traction to prevent against axle wrap and wheel hop. However, they also have a negative side effect in which they limit your suspension's ability to articulate, causing a degradation of performance when off road. That has all changed with the RECOIL Traction Bars!

BDS Suspension's RECOIL Traction Bars are a revolutionary spring loaded traction bar system engineered to improve traction and limit axle wrap without negatively affecting suspension travel or ride quality. These next generation RECOIL traction bars offer you the freedom to tune the spring tension for optimal performance on-road, off-road, towing, or competition pulling. These traction bars can be used on stock height or lifted trucks and work with both lift blocks and replacement leaf spring kits. They use a full floating design that won't bind up allowing the full range of wheel travel without limiting articulation.

These RECOIL traction bars are built to the highest standards for the ultimate performance on and off-road. The bars are fabricated from 2" OD x 3/16" wall steel tubing with a threaded bung welded in toward the axle and a CNC machined end at the frame. The axle mount uses the tried and true BDS large forged flex end and jam nut to take whatever abuse you throw at it. Utilizing a forged housing with large 1-1/4" -12 threaded shank, a single sided snap ring and 1-piece flex ball, the flex ends are capable of up to 15-degrees of misalignment in either direction.

At the frame end the bar uses a durometer specific polyurethane bushing and free floats in the traction bar utilizing a pair of dual stage internal compression springs and UHMW polyurethane bearings. Both ends are greaseable and serviceable.

RECOIL Brackets | Vehicle Specific - Fully assembled the RECOIL traction bars are 55" long and mount to the vehicle using fabricated 1/4" steel brackets. Bracket kits are vehicle specific. The frame brackets install by drilling mounting holes for the brackets while the axle brackets install using a set of u-bolts. The traction bars and mounting brackets feature a durable gloss black powdercoat finish.

Adjustable Axle Wrap Control - These RECOIL traction bars are built to the highest standards featuring quick and easy adjustment while installed on the vehicle. To adjust spring tension, use the supplied spanner wrenches at the axle to loosen the jam nut. From there the main bar can be rotated to load or unload the springs at the frame side of the bar. Using the concave end of the wrench handle against the frame end check the location of the end of the main bar in relation to the notches on the wrench to verify the load on the springs, the shorter the distance the more loaded the springs are. Repeat this process on the other traction bar and use the wrenches to tighten down the jam nuts and you are ready to go!

I would buy this product again.
The traction bars appear to be made with good quality heavy duty materials. I like that both ends are greasable to promote longevity. I went with the bds recoil bars because I also installed a bds lift and they invert the U bolts and most other traction bar manufacturers use the U bolts for mounting. I like the adjustment ability my only concern is how well it's sealed up and how long it lasts. My only complaint now is that they are pricey compared to other manufacturers but they do have benefits that others do not. I guess time will tell if they are worth the extra money.

Thank you for the review and glad you like the new traction bars. While the Recoil bars are still relatively new to market, we haven't seen any issues with the joint allowing moisture inside causing any failure.
