SOA Lift & Tracktion Bar Question

My "87" Wrangler project has a Ford 10.25 rear axle, 4:10 running gears and 4" lifted springs. I just made a set of traction bars, one for the right and one for the left, that have a set of stock shackles on the front conected to the T/C skid plate. My question is should these be welded solid on the backside of the bar to the rear axle? My pivot point is the shackle on the front, but should there be any pivot or movment at the axle? I was going to just weld it on, but thought I should ask the question first. Thanks

You can just weld it on the tube but I'm not sure you want to put one on both sides. Most of the setups I have seen like that only use one bar. Check out samsoffroad.com, he was the first one to make this kind of thing eons ago.

Thats what I was thinking, but just wanted confirmation. I will check that site out, thanks. I was thinking of going with one on each side to try and eliminate all of the torque and stress from one point on the skid plate. I was thinking there would be less chance for any breakage.

I understand....the way I do um is one point in the center to two points on the rearend via a bent tube. That way it will eliminate the wrap and still allow travel
