    hey im doing truck pulls next weekend and i have a 4" block in the back of my long bed...im going to squat the back down and chain it so there isnt very much movement and throw a mafia block in the back for some weight my question is whats a good quick solution to wheel hop? i was thinking make a traction bar by welding a shock mount like bracket onto my diff and to the frame and making a bar...i just need to do it pretty quick any suggestions would help thanks alot

    i'll second ditching the block. that's going to do a couple of things for you.

    first it will eliminate wheelhop. second it will eliminate a stress point. and third, by squatting the back of the truck down 4" from where it normally is will transfer more weight to the rear tires giving the same effect as the balast weight you're already planning on adding.

    if you're pulling with the 1500 Suburban in your profile, throw this all out the window and dont hook it up to anything. 4L60E + 10 bolt + heavy load = well, lets just say scrap metal. :deal:
