Get ruff stuffs kit and have it fitted to your truck.

All the other designs are flawed in some way.

How about beefier rear spring leaf pack instead? Like:

You don't even need the helper leaf. That's not stopping the axle wrap.

The clamp on the front of the leaf keeps them from separating.

All that's needed is a clamp to keep the springs from separating under acceleration, the helper leaf is simply resting under the leaf pack until those springs frown enough to apply pressure to the helper, which helps hold the weight.

Thanks for your help guys!

Installed the 2.5 in wide (Autozone Part Number: 13-1401A $15) clamps about 4in in front of the axle and torqued them down to 50ft lbs. That did the trick!

I am happy happy happy.

This made all the difference, you may want to try it out

Exactly. All you need are the clamps to prevent the springs from separating.

Honestly, aside from the traction bar, spring clamps did more to lessen my axle wrap than any other solution.

Trac bar is the one true fix, but if the budget is tight, I'd just clamp the springs.
