Forward under-ride traction bar mount welding
« on: May 19, 2018, 11:05:11 PM »
About to weld the front mount. Does the weld run the entire perimeter of the bracket? Thanks in advance.

Typically stitch welded and not all the way around.

Hi Kram350,

Please tell me how you located the bracket.  Did you attached the axle mount and bar and located the brackets with the suspension fully loaded and then marked the location?  Then with the car on a lift, you can place the brackets and weld?

Thanks

Cory

Let the car settle, swung the bar and mount into place under load, marked and welded mount on the lift and then reassembled. I followed the Traction Master instructions. Thanks for the photos .
