    does anybody have or know of any good ways to cure axle wrap w/out limiting articulation? don't care if its homemade or store bought. was thinking of a bar that could twist and be attached to the houseing and the frame w/bushings to keep the pinion in one place. any ideas???

    Get rid of the blocks if you got them. They put extra leverage on the springs. If you still have a problem once you get rid of the blocks then a torq arm with a shackle at the end would be the best way to go without limiting flex.

    Most axle wrap is due to the blocks in the rear as Grim-Reaper said. You can eather remove the blocks and use a spring lift or you can due a Shackle flip and keep the stock springs in the rear. There are companies that makes traction bars but they normally limit the arc of the springs.
