Default Lakewood Traction Action Jr.?

Can anyone tell me about them? What do they fit? I bought these simply because they caught my eye. Are they missing something?

No, they look complete. I remember seeing those years ago on small leafspring cars like Vega’s in Pinto ‘s. Cool find!

I felt more like I adopted these cute parts than purchased them.

Not just for small cars but mounted @ front of leafs to prevent wheel hop under braking.
Great Woolworth's ad below w/ Traction Action Jr. bars from Fort Hood Texas 09/29/72.

Not Vega, Vegas have rear coils not leaf springs. Universal shortys just for looks, don’t do a lot to stop wheelhop as springs will just windup.
