    Re: ladder bar length--vs--wheelbase

    Ladder bars, traction bars, wheelhop. So you're saying coil spring cars never wheelhop? Hell, four link race cars tire shake.
    My hobby is needing a hobby.

      maybe he wants it to pull monster truck wheelies.....
      im sure it stops wheelhop either way, tho i get what youre
      saying bout seperation. maybe he compromised that to get
      better wheelhop control? i dunno. i been hit in the head alot, so..................

        of course they do. the cure is easy tho--on a triangulated 4 link (think chevelle, vega, fox mustang, etc...) spreading
        the rear mounting points apart by raising the upper bar mount or lowering bottom bar mount at the rear end changes
        instant center and immediately kills wheelhop.

        had a 70 grand prix 455sj that wheelhopped so bad the right rear coil fell out of the car once. a set of "stop hop" bars
        and it was smooth as glass........
