Traction Bars with air shocks

I have a 1980 camaro equipped with air shocks, and I have a lot of wheel hop. I was wondering if there is any way to use traction bars with air shocks?

If I understand your inquiry, air shocks were originally designed to incorporate a small air bag to a hydraulic shock absorber. The purpose was to allow you to raise your car, as in the application of larger tires.

If those are the air shocks you are referring to, yes, you can add traction bars unless, unless the shock absorber part of the air shocks are simply worn out.

That was kinda' the joke about used air shocks. They might still hold air, but if the shocks are shot you're wasting your money.
