8.8 anti-wrap bar idea, opinions?
When you have a CV shaft, an 8.8, and are SOA, the nose of the case is about the same height as the top of the diff cover. There is also a very thick nose vane on an 8.8 with holes in it (for a shock based anti-wrap as I recall). I have always preferred a right side anti-wrap because of the way the power forces work, so I came up with this idea.
Rather than the normal 'weld a vertical bracket to the tube and use a triangle bar' setup, I was thinking of using a straight bar/beam and a bolt on setup. A back bushing would be held in position by a robust diff guard, and a more forward bushing held in place bolted to that diff case vane and those holes. The far front would be a typical shackle style attach. A mini-mod to my exhaust would allow the room needed on the right side of the drive shaft. Any opinions on this working or not?
