traction bars street car slide-a-link or calverts?

have a hotchkis mult-leaf springs on a mono perched 12 bolt.
looking for a set of traction bars for a street car. I have seen calverts are getting rave reviews for racing but want something for the street maybe the occasional test and tune night at the drag strip.
opinions and thoughts on the CE slide a link and cal trac bars

Re: traction bars street car slide-a-link or calverts?

Dave Pozzi has posted that any traction aids on Hotchkis springs voids warranty. I'm not up on their stuff since I'm more street/strip than cutting corners But I'd look into it first....unless you're not concerned with that....I vote CalTracs.

I know you didn't ask, but IMO for a 99.999% driven street car traction bars is the way to go. Why spend an extra $150 for Cal-tracs?

Why to you want them? A good set of springs, bushings and shocks makes traction bars unnecessary.

I'm no expert, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, I believe that you can still can get the diff to rotate too much even with good springs.

+1 what he said
I use competition engineering traction bars and could not believe the difference they made
