Traction Bars????? Home made

I recently changed out my Sterling rear end for a Dana 60. I pull a Gooseneck Dump Trailer W/materials. My loads are as heavy as 16,000 lbs. I noticed my rear end would roll forward at takeoff, and my rear yoke is beat to hell from the u-joint. Can anyone give me some insight on how to build a set of traction bars to remedy my problem?.

its from a different site but i found it quick

http://www.dieseltruckresource.com/d....html?t=186026

i built mine out of 1 1/4 DOM with ball joints on the ends.... not sure of the formula but the should be the same length and parallel with the drive shaft that has the slip couple in it... mine worked out to like 6' or something.

I don't have a lift on my truck, I just pull a large amount of weight, and my dana 60 has been rolling. I'm sure this will cure my problem.
