First off I love this product. I was amazed with the level of flex it produced. This is my third blazer and none ever flexed like this (so well I cracked my frame with 33's) But am I the only one that has had a lot of axle wrap in the sand. And on the road if I give it anymore than half throttle I can here the suspension pop and the truck shift back and then it is all good (all in about a second) Is this normal? Is there an easy fix. I am guessing I will have to run some sort of traction bar system so I can play in the sand and "go" on the road. Is there any other system other than az kickins that wont eliminate my articulation (again the shackle flip and zero rates have amazed me with thier amount of flex). Please help? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

Wheel hop is a tricky problem, I've changed tires and drastically changed my wheelhop characteristics with a suspension similar to yours.
We're close to having our 2 link traction bar system ready to go and in the works on another system so there are ways to solve your problem.
The pop on acceleration might be the slip yoke on the transfer case binding and releasing under torque, so it may not be coming from the suspension at all. Otherwise, check all the bushings and ubolts as a starting point, and from there, good luck finding a mysterious "pop".
