Wheel Hop - 66 GMC

Read a few posts about wheel hop concerning cars. Good info but I just thought I'd ask in regards to my truck.

I have a 66GMC 3/4 truck that experiences some decent wheelhop on initial acceleration while racing. Not really much to the rear end. Its a 4.10 Posi rear. It has some hefty leaf springs in the rear as well. Any thoughts on what might help this? Any info that I left out that you need?

Thanks guys. I appreciate the information.

Wheel Hop

Here is a good article on that subject:
http://www.competitionengineering.co...s/chassis2.asp

Until I put the Southside Machine Lift Bars (traction bars) on my Camaro, I had real bad wheel hop. You could actually hear the rear yoke hitting the bottom of the car, and see the evidence that it was hitting (marks from rotating U-joint).

I would say some type of slapper bar or traction bar will help matters out.
