Traction bar?

Just got a whole new axle set up for my 82 cj7. The rear dana 44 came with a nice haevy duty traction bar set up. The only thing is how do i connect the bar to the frame and if i do is this going to limit my articulation?

What kind of traction bar system is it?

A lot of them, not knowing what yours is, use a shackle like system to connect to the tranny cross member. This provides good isolation of vibration and allows movement on the end so it doesn't impact articulaiton much.
