    ive got a hop shock, i just need the axel bracket adn once thats on i think my problems will be solved, if not im gonna go one of two way

    either buy a set of those traction control springs we were talking about or replace the shock part of the hop shock assembly with custom link (kinda like a 4 link bar)

    I've got 3" springs and no blocks, and it just plants the tires. No hop at all. With street tires it will sometimes spin 'em, but still little to no hopping.

    im also running a manual that may contribute a little, but my springs are also prety crappy

    i think if i was running some better springs i would be in good shape

    Your more likely to have hop with a manual vs. auto. Hop shock really seems to work on my truck.

    good thats what i wante to hear

    and if i get a realy good 1-2 shift, i can feel the springs wrap up and then it hops like crazy

    btw i can shift just fine my tranny is bitchy about shifting quickly, but it will all be solved once i get 3 more parts :evil:

    I havent had any hop with this truck at all. But, I've got a lot more weight over the rear end than most do with the the cell, battery, and nitrous bottle all behind the axle.

    Still wants to put the truck sideways banging 2nd with my drag radials on though. :smoker:

    a hop shock is a 3rd shock mounted on the rear end, its mounted horizontal and one end attaches to the frame and the other to a bracket on the rear end its suposed to cut down on axel wrap and wheel hop

    No, I changed the yoke. Factory posi is the 1st weakest, then the yoke should be the 2nd.

    1350 U joint billet yoke
    3.90 gears
    Eaton posi
    Summit aluminum diff. girdle
    new bearings and seals
    Weakest link should be the stock 30 spline axles.
