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

cheap cure is to clamp the leaves of the spring front halves together.

I had the old "slapper" bars that were welded to the lowering blocks with a bracket off to the side with the rubber bumper under the spring. I have to tell you, ZERO hop. That sucker hooked up big time.

What size tires are on the truck? The 10 bolt should be fine short term as long as you don't have wide sticky tires.

Now if you are trying to plant the 500 HP you should be shopping for something a bit stouter. A 12 bolt would be nice or, as you stated, a 9" Ford.

running P255/60R15 on the rear right now may have to drop down size a little but we like the way the tires fills up the big fender-same tires that was on it when we had the 350 in it.I'm going out the the other shop and check on the 68 El Camino I have and see what the rear end in it is I had forgot all about that one.I hope it's a 12 bolt but don't know.Like to Thank everyone for the help and replys still need the help

that ten bolt will hold up to 500 hp. unless your just launching it over n over everyday like at the strip. You just need some suspension or chassis help. like traction bars, caltracs, better springs, spring clamps, 4 link, or the like. whats your plans overall with the truck? weekend warrior, daily, street strip, strip only? I bet we can help you fix the issue for what you want. does it do this under hard braking too?

the truck will be a drove anytime truck-it will be run on the strip,and turn on the streets a lot-under hard braking when it comes out in when it wheel hopping bad from a 10-15 mile roll it's braking the wheels lose and spinning but it moving on down the road.

On my 50 chevy pickup I had as a kid with bbc and 4 speed We used a 12 bolt rearend out of a 70 chevelle that had trailing arms origionally.
I used the existing mounting mounts on top of 3rd member to run homemade control arms to a cross member I added to frame,then I mounted the axle on top of the stock reworked truck springs.
That truck would pull the front tires off the ground 2" and just launch like a damn motorcycle,no tire spin problems.
Cty sheriff lived down the hill from me,we talked regularly!
