    Default 95 mustang - decent traction/axle anti-twist bar?

    I'm putting some slicks on a 95 mustang.

    I need to prevent the rear axle from twisting. The car is still street driven, full power accessories, a/c, etc...

    What is a good traction bar that won't interfere with the way it rides during normal use, which is 90% of the time.

    Any anti roll bar is going to interfere with the way the car rides, if it doesn't then it isn't doing the job it is intended to do. Just depends on how much the owner is willing to put up with for a street driven car.

    UPR, Team Z etc are good weld in bars. MM makes a bolt on kit too.

    Just reread your post. An anti roll bar will help with traction but won't help with axle twist. You need to weld the tubes and add bracing to prevent axle twist. CHE makes a bolt in kit, but some weld on supports would be better.

    Team Z has a great street series set up thats absolutely awesome. Anti roll bars aren't exactly street friendly, but running an aftermarket anti sway bar works good too. You will suffer some ride quality,but his has bushings in them still so better than solid. You don't really have to worry about axle tubes twisting untill you hit serious power levels. I've seen cars well into the 9's and 8's without tubes welded, but Team Z also sells a nice axle brace kit too.
