The Trac-inator is a direct bolt on trac-bar designed to terminate the effects of deflection, increase steering response and control.
Our design incorporates a 1" uniball set inside a custom cup assembly that (like the stock balljoint) is pressed into the original stock axle location. Our uniball setup allows the use of a double shear bar mount without having to move the pivot from it's stock location. At the frame mount we use a 1" hiem instead of rubber or polyurethane bushing. The bar itself is 1-5/8 OD x 1/4 thick DOM tube and the plating at the axle mount equates to a 7/16" thickness per each bolt tab.
All of this adds up to the best bar you can buy to neutralize the causes of "Death Wobble".

"I am really impressed with this bar. The truck steers better than any truck I’ve owned or driven. drives like it just left the factory - better than that, actually." Sam L.
“Bar works great! Drives like it should no bump steer and feels safer to drive!” Robert V.
“After lifting my new F250 I was always unhappy with the steering feel, the wife would not drive it. After installing Baja Customs trac-bar, Dynatrac balljoints, and HD tie rod ends all issues were fixed. Truck steers much, much better than when new, wife agrees. I was considering dumping the truck at a great loss, now very happy. This is my daily driver and serious offroad toy.” Paul G.
“The tracinator is awesome, tightened up the front end so my F350 handles like a go cart, thanks again for the fix.” Basil H.
“Perfect fit, great craftsmanship, by far the best product out there trac-bar wise.” Brian M.
"I just wanted to say thank you. The tracinator is far superior to anything that ford could design, easy to install and the result was instant, it is a death wobble killer." Phillip C.
"I just wanted to say that I’ve been working on cars for just about 30 years, I’ve spent years working on off road trucks as well. Racing MDR, back in the day to working on a trophy truck team for many years. I’m not easily impressed, but I am with this. I’m blown away at the quality, construction and finish. It’s exactly what I wanted to build but never have. I was looking at the icon one for years and when I got the death wobble going straight the other day I knew it was time, I stumbled across your product and I’m really glad I did. It tightened up the steering significantly, haven’t driven it enough to know if there is something else worn causing it but this thing is awesome." Pat O.
The problem with your stock bar
The OEM trac-bar or pan-hard bar setup, is a bar mounted in single shear to a ball joint at the axle and a rubber bushing at the frame. The OEM bar is offset from the center of the ball joint at the axle. This applies un-wanted torque and deflection on the joint and the rod. The rubber bushings at the frame mount is another source of un-wanted deflection. As the balljoint and rubber bushings wear, deflection increases. When deflection occurs the trac bar loses its ability to keep the axle in position laterally under the truck. The wobble or shimmy you feel from the steering wheel is actually the steering linkage being forced to control the axle and wheels, as the trac bar deflects.
Note: In regards to certain replacement bars on the market that relocate the axle trac-bar mount higher. Be aware the only scenario where this would be acceptable is if a lift kit was installed without or did not include a drop down bracket for the trac-bar. Considering most lift kits provide a drop bracket, moving the axle mount position higher would only worsen the suspension geometry.
