Wheel hop with rear end 1952 chevy truck

We are working on my son 52 chevy truck---Just put the engine in before Christmas 406 SBC-iT'S RIGHT AT 500 HP-WE are running a 10 bolt 8.5 pos rear end 373 gears-It has leaf springs-We are having wheel hop from a dead stand still.From a roll it's spinning the wheels but no wheel hop.The truck had been lowed.The truck was sit up years ago with this rear end before we got.we had a 350 in it before it run great like this but now I see I don't think this rear end can handle the HP.Like to get this one to work if we can for now.Got a lot of $$$$ in the engine,And money is getting a little funny you now.Need some ideas
