Ladder bars for Dually

I am fairly new here and did a search but could not find anything. I am looking into ladder bars for my F-350 crewcab dually 2wd to control some axle rap when accelerating with the trailer. I have found them for 4wd trucks but not for 2wd. Does any body know of a company that makes them. I have searched for hours on the internet but am not able to find any. It is amazing the movement that is there when you accelerate.
Thanks for any help.

jeffreyj,
If I'm not mistaken the rear are the same 4wheel drive or 2 wheel drive. So if you find a set that you like for a 4wheel drive, call the manufacturer and check.

If you are saying 'axle wrap' and meaning it shudders, it could be the clutches in the LS differential grabbing. I had that problem and Ford cured it by replacing the fluid and using double the recommended friction modifier.
The same feeling can be caused by the CV joint in the driveshaft wobbling in the support bearing cradle.
Some things to consider before going to the traction bars...

No it is not a shudder it is actual spring movement on take off. It is not a problem just wanted to keep the springs from rolling,easier on the suspension and u-joints.I replaced the diff.lube. I installed a mag hy-tec diff case and used amsoil gear lube and it works great. I now have almost 8quarts of gear oil in the rear to help keep it cool,and no rear shudder. Thanks

Boy, I would think that a 1 ton dually of any make would have stiff enough springs that you wouldn't need anything else. You don't list anything much about this TV, did you purchase used? Possible previous owner wanted a softer ride and changed springs? If new did it come with a HD towing package or maybe a ride package with lighter springs? A little help here please

Since I don't monitor any other truck brand forums I don't know much about GMs or Dodges, but some Fords do suffer from spring movement from the torque applied under heavy loads. Seems to be a rare, but not unheard condition.
As to a 1 ton having enough springs, what about the 3/4 tons with the same engine and trans? Their springs should be even more prone than a 1 ton, if it was going to be a problem.
