Whats the best pull bar out there ?

I seen this one at the AFCO site:
http://www.secureperformanceorder.com/afcostore/getproduct.cfm?CategoryID=14&ClassID=188&SubclassID=908&ProductID=6959

Anyone run it currently? It says its a 2 way design, not sure if it works well or not but looks nice.

The other thread about the lift-arm and the pull-rod got me looking for a pull-bar to try that set up out.

That pull bar looks nice. I run the Afco pull bar but its not a two way like that, mine just uses a rubber bushing for entry control, I also use the Afco progressive rate coil spring. I think I might get one of those and try it.......put my coil spring on it and see what it does. But in my opinion it looks very good. My pull bar work very well, that one looks alot better though.

i use a bms mods one, it works well but is difficult to clean, and get to, parts on the inside. i looked over a bsb one the other night, i may be getting one of those next time i get one.

I saw the Harris pullbar at a swapmeet this spring, looked like a very trick piece! At the time I think it was the only one in existence?!

Any idea how much it costs?

Must be nice for $399 !!!! Is it a spring type or biscuit, if its a spring type then is it progressive rate or what?? Would like to hear a little more about it and if possible see some pics, before I consider buying it.

Thanks,
Dale

i would still look into the bsb one. i think it cost alot less than 399. i dont know for sure the price but for 399 it must be a great part.
i think i am getting the bsb one. www.bsb-mfg.com i think is the website.

Better yet call the actual tech guys at Harris. Reese runs one on his car I think Jay also does. Just kidding REX. Haven't seen you since you left Harris so have to get you riled up.

Ive sold over 15 Of those since i left Harris, Never had a complaint. I Have also had one on our car all year and we have actually preloaded it different than reese and Jay. Either way guys they are awesome. the spring is a custom made Eibach progressive rate of 200-1800. after preload its starts at 400, It lets the car get up on the bars right away and by the time they hit the shoot its at 1500. I have been told many many times that this was the single best component people have ever put on their cars. All the new Hoffman cars will have them, as Jerry is running one on his personal car. thanks call me wildside if you need anything,
REX
