Wheel Hop fixes

http://www.martelbros.com/catalog/Fo...-1-c-1560.html

cheapest I've seen.

As a bunch of y'all start moving up the hp/tq and tire ladder you'll probably start to notice axle tramping and wheel hop.

The fix is either to adapt a quad shock setup from a GT (lot's of welding) switch to an aftermarket suspension system (griggs, MM, KB, Steeda, etc.,) or run traction bars.

Those are the cheapest I've seen, If you find more post '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.

You can never go wrong with hotchkis, your traction is as only as good as the parts you got on the car
No, they are used for coil suspensions, too.

I'd go with Steeda's aluminim lower control arms before I went to hotchkis, but that's just me.

The hotchkis components are probably more durable, but weight is an issue for 6ers.

Both Steeda and Hotchkis assume quad shocks are on the car for some control. The 6ers don't have the quads, which means you really should go to traction bars . ..

The hotchkiss units were designed for quad suspensions.

The traction bars were designed for pre-quad suspensions.

The hotchkiss unit's without the quad shocks will not control the axle. You only have improved deflection from the bushings.

Steeda units have been used in drag racing for years, and they haven't broken.
