In reverse, it's axle hop. If you're on an uneven surface going forward, you'll get the same effect.

You can either adapt the quad setup from a GT, or pick up rear suspension bits from the handling folks (griggs, steeda, kenny brown, maximum motorsports) or pick up a set of lakewood traction bars if you can still find 'em.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
