Anti-hop Bars

I am thinking of buying anti-hop bars to install in my 66' Chevelle. The question is how do I install them. Are there illustrated instructions that I can refer to? I currently have a FAB 9 inch rear end; upper control arms, boxed control arms, rear springs, and rear anti-sway bars.

Sorry I havent ever installed a pair. Most of the stuff i work on is to old, to new, or just cruisers. where they never really get on them. However i would suspect that ther should be some tech info out there or installation instructions with them. The last time i bought leaf springs there were instructions with them, go figure.

If you buy new ones there should be complete instructions with them. If you buy name brand used ones you should be able to download complete instructions online. That's what I did with a pair I bought.

Hey Juiced
If the no hop bars your thinking of are the ones that go from the center of the rearend housing up to the upper trailing arms , I don't think they will work with a 9 inch Ford rearend because part of the no hop bars bolt into a hole that you drill into the webing that is cast into the center section of a 10 and 12 bolt Chevelle rearend and a 9 inch Ford third member dosn't have the webing in the same place.

Hey Trail,

Motor is a 383, trans is a rebuilt beefed up 350 TH hooked up to a Gear Venor, Vigilant 3000 stall converter (wish I bought the 3,600 converter and 4.11 rear gears. I am really disappointed in the traction (2.1 - 2.3 60 ft.). One thing that I am pleased with is my upgrade to a Lokar Cable set-up for my throttle linkage. My stock throttle assembly was very shaky and was not opening to WOT with hardly no top end.

I plan to take it the track and I hope to break into the 11's. That's why I am looking in improving my traction. I'll also look into coilover shocks (QA1).

I am soooo close 12.5.

As noted by 57half ton, I'll contact Edlebrock's or Summit's tech department if my set-up can be adapted to accept the anti-hop bars.

you don't need the bars, your 9" raised the upper mount points,
and thats what the hop bars do.. when used on a 10 or 12 bolt..
I'd invest in adjustable upper arms(links)
