    bad wheel hop!! I.R.S.

    I know there's a problem with the I.R.S. cars having bad wheel hop, especially with the M-6, I was thinking of getting some airbags, but have no idea which ones to get, I don't want a whole lot of rake, maybe an inch or two, and how hard are they to put on, anyone ever done it? thanks.

    I've heard the BMR drag bags work great. They dont lower or raise you car from what I understand and ride quality is unaffected when you deflate them. I am going to get the bags and the diff insert.

    i installed a pair in a GTO. it did raise the car up with enough air pressure. the same friend might be removing them as he is selling the car. if you want, i can get you in contact with him about them.

    How did they work out? Did they take care of all/most of the wheel hop? Are they easy to add and take air out of them, I cant really tell how they work for pics that I have seen.
