    I don't know, from the description sounds like some trailer park hack job quarter elip, hard to tell without pics.

    It sounds like it might be a traction lift, like the ones that Trailmaster (*I think*) used to sell.

    Sounds like a goofy traction bar to me.

    I think it is actually a type of overload spring pack. I had these on one of my old trucks when I bought it.
