I have a buddy out in PA with a 5.0 AWD and he needs to replace the bars that go from the top of the rear axle to inside the frame rail. What are they called technically?

I think Ford's technical term for them is Torque Arm and they came standard on 5.0L Expo's I believe. Both the 00 & 98 that I've raped the drivetrains out of had them.

Anti-wrap device? yup... Also called a traction bar..

You thought axle-wrap was bad with the 225ft/lb the 4.0 motor makes....

Try it with 300ft/lb
