Two words..."Ladder Bars."

If you've got a suspension lift, then consider getting some custom rear spring-packs, allowing you to eliminate the block and add-a-leaf setup.

Alcan makes some nice springs...you can order them completely custom for ANY type of application. They offer something called the "Torque-Leaf" option...if you're running between 450-650-rwhp, then I would suggest trying it...

However, if you're running 650+rwhp, then I'd suggest Ladder Bars, or Traction Bars.

So these are basically like control arms, just on a leaf setup? I had a set of custom long arms on an old Jeep - although it was for my front end, they mounted to a custom HD cross-member. The rear used an adjustable triangulated setup, although with shorter arms.

Actually, I tell you what?

If you can, do it yourself!

All you need is a decent mig or tig welder, some 1-3/4" D.O.M., about four (4) 3/4" Heim-joints, some 3/8" steel plate, some 1/2" grade-8 (hardened) bolts, lockwashers, washers, and nuts (ALL grade-8). Unless you're welding the brackets to the frame, then you won't need those nuts and washers...just the ones to fit through your brackets and heim-joints (make sure to check for length, and be sure and use washers, lockwashers, AND "Ny-lok" nuts.

All-in-all, you should be looking at no more than a Saturday's work...depending on your fabrication/mechanic skills, and your tool resources.

I'm a Metal-Fabrication Specialist (by trade)...therefore, if I was to just "throw-down" on it, and take no "liquid-engineering" breaks, then I could probably get it done in a matter of 4-to-8 hours...depending on the vehicle, how smoothly and easily it goes together, and how much dirt I have to clean off before I can clean the surfaces! Hahaha!
