try a set of lakewood slapper bars. they cured my wheel hop. i mean it was so bad it would hop even in the snow !! now it just takes off. and the best part is the price. i paid $38 bucks for them at advance auto. lakewood just came out with a new set just for street trucks but i don't know how much they cost. i'll bet under $80 bucks.
wheel hop is when your tires bouce on take off when then spin and it makes a chirp chirp chirp chirp sound instead of just squeeling steady. My r/t does this bad if the road is rough but on real smooth surfaces it will just spin. The traction bars or slaper bars are designed to keep wheel hop down by planting the tires harder against the road when you take off. Hope that clears things up for you.
see thats the delema im in, I have never had a 4X4 so i don't really know what its capible of. I have always been a car guy who stays on the road (well usually) Personally i like the look of a lower profile truck then a big hick truck that is over 10 feet tall. Not a knock just a preference. I like to slide off to a dirt road sometimes to kick in 4X4. But generally i really i guess don't need it at least for what it is intended for. opinions please...
I ride 98% on the road and would like to have a smoother faster take off is this a product i should buy???
I dont see how it would hurt to put them on your truck if you stay on road most of the time. The angles of the bars may be different and im not real sure they even make a traction bar for a 4x4 maybe sombody else can answer that one better.
The only problem with trac bars is most of them hit the wrong part of the leaf spring.You want the front snubber to hit the spring eye where the bushing is.Most of them hit where the first spring stakc is and it tries to bend the spring not giving the full efect.Summit sells a set of longer slapper bars or you can get some box channle and extend it your self.I personally like the cal-tracs better they are a better desighn and function.But ofcourse cost more and the slide-a-links don't impress me at all.My buddy ryan has them on his blown gen II dak and had no effect on his traction.Hope this answers your question and if your slammed in the weeds i don't recommend slapper bars.(been there hit that)
