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

    All the other designs are flawed in some way.

    Don't those go on the top of the leaf?

    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.

    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.
