Well you can get a Bud Built traction bar. That will help minimize or eliminate axle wrap.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

He's obviously a racer, complaining of axle wrap. An agressive stance is what they like

Mine had it pretty bad too. I didn't realize to what extent until I was removing my driveshaft for the first time one night. Every time I would loosen one of the rear flange bolts the leaf springs would turn into an "S. Never had any issues with sagging or anything, just a consistent leap frog effect when taking off from a stop.

All this went away after I installed helper springs (Hellwig - 981's). They're single leaf helpers and install in like 20 minutes. The only downfall is that they do raise the rear by and inch or so. But they also make hauling heavier materials less embarrassing.
