Axle hop help!

With my tunes and the power im putting through my truck, when ever I set up to do a sled pull, my truck starts hoping off the line and feels like its about to explode, so I have to let off till it settles then give it again, then it will start again around the 250 ft mark. I need some help on what I can do to stop this before something breaks. I stop early due to this, and I have 35s on my truck as well as a 2.5 inch newton kit on the way!

Thanks!

Traction bars will be my best bet? Any good reputable places out there for them? I've been told a front four link will help, is that true?

Thanks!

Traction bars and lock out your front suspension. Do a search for traction bars and look around. There are many different options at all kinds of different prices.

Newton makes a good set of traction bars that get the job done. I run them on my truck however they are a fixed mount on the axle and the frame so they may affect the ride a little bit.

Im between Newton and PMF. PMF seems alittle better then newton, although I'm alittle confused on PMFs website with the blocks, PMF Single Traction Bar Kit.

I have blocks coming from newton, so I wont need different blocks, correct?


Thanks!

That set of PMF's are no better than the Newtons and I'm pretty sure you will need the blocks that are made for the traction bars but I'm not 100% on that. The floating PMF's are better but they cost a lot more.

Reading that traction bars are more for rear end, and 4 link front kits are for front end hop?

Help!

Thanks!

Yes that is correct. If you are pulling you need traction bars in my opinion.
