    wheel hop?

    i just recently finished an 8.8 with 4.10 gears, it has the mini ladder bar setup. my question is when i shift at 6k the rearend bounces, would this be due to shocks and springs or lcas? since both are stock. it only does it when im shifting at high rpms.

    I can tell you that I used to have alot of wheel hop. I replaced the LCA's, LCAs relocation brackets and panhard bar. I don't have the terrible wheel hop anymore. If your shocks and springs are pretty old I will throw new ones in. But I will get aftermarket LCA's and panhard bar 1st.

    The stock LCA's and panhard bar are stamped steel and quite flimsy. You can actually twist them with your hands. I would start there unless you know for a fact that your shocks are worn out.
