started making a ladder bar/torque arm for my 1950 pick up. 1-1/4" x .120 DOM tubing (12') 3/4"-16 threaded rod ends (x3) 3/4"-16 Comp. Eng. solid rod ends (x2) 3/4"-16 threaded bushed end (x1) 1/4" mild steel plate leaf spring shackle, 90's chevy 1500 (x1) I decided on a torque arm style mount because it would rotate about the center of the rear axle and not bind during street use. Ladder bars tend to create a giant anti-roll bar out of the rear axle, limiting articulation. the hardware is for mock up, the non-hardened stuff will be replaced. I was having trouble finding hardened bolts with the correct shoulder length. the shape is basic, consisting of two triangles, one circumscribed about the other when finished. my truck is for street use. i plan on taking it to the track periodically. with this set up I feel that i can retain the stock style leaf springs. the front shackle mount is 1/4" mild steel. the rear axle mount will be more of the same.
