They make boots for them to keep the diet out..those in the pic are for a car..
The shackle is setup like this and usually only one



I've ran hiem joints on both ends never had a problem..

Setup up wrong.... Mainly no pre-load it bucks hops and Carry's on regardless what bushings are at the ends

Okay that makes more sense, except the last part. Lol. Are you missing a word or is it me?

Autocorrect...

Normal traction bars... I've seen buck hop ride rough and carry on, if setup is wrong (usually no axle pre-load or improper axle pre-load) regardless what bushings are at the ends...mainly referencing James comment about rough ride with heim joints

Heís thinking that if the springs are not under some kind of bind with the triangulated bar, the axle will still wrap or hop which isnít the case IF you have enough separation between the top and bottom bushings at the axle. Tire size and torque will dictate this separation distance like a 4 or 3 link. 8-9Ē would be plenty.

You want the triangulated bar as parallel to the ground as possible if you were to draw a line between the two axle bushings to the front single heim, you want that flat at ride height. Gives you 0 anti squat and lessens the bounce that it can induce. The triangulated setup is a much tougher setup as it reduces a lot more stress on springs but that means if not done right, it can ruin the ride or springs. Single bars under the axle are more forgiving in comparison

I would also highly suggest welding the housing to the axle tubes if you will sled pull with the triangulated one, it will put a ton of force on the center section

So on a normal style trac bar do you need preload on any point? Probably what Iíll go with seeing as from what you guys are saying itís easier to setup and nicer ride. All I use the truck for is. Daily and pulling trailers/ fifth wheel trailers.

Little to no proper preload had wheelhop
You commented to James

And agree as parallel to ground as possible for min anti squat
