hey s.c. i appreciate it. so i guess we all agree that a set of traction bars should do the trick. the truck does not have a front sway bar. i know it seems unusual but it sure isn't there. i have monroe sensatrac shocks on the front and they really make it ride nice up front, but after adding the rear lowering shackles the rear is really stiff. i can stand in bed and jump up and down and the thing barely moves, tailgate sounds like it is going to come unlatched on the smallest of bumbs. that is what initially made me think of losing the helper spring. which would still leave three leafs. for a hundred dollars that system does not sound to bad, since a good set of traction bars from jegs that fit my truck are also a hundred dollars. any pros and cons between the two.

Just a thought - try <a href="http://www.calvertracing.com." target="_blank">www.calvertracing.com.</a> They have the Caltracs traction bars. I was getting alot of wheel hop in my TA, even with an entirely new suspension - front and back. They cost me around $250, so they aren't the cheapest, but I liked the way they fit. They completly eliminated the wheel hop. Check it out, for nothing else it won't cost anything.
