Re: Wheel hop under braking

I'm thinking that a pair of simple traction bars (that someone else suggested) that connect and pivot at the same point the front spring bolts are so you don't cause a spring bind may be the easy cure.

Or maybe a torque arm that bolts to a few of the bolts on the third member and runs up and pivots at the same point the front U joint is ala Camaro of a few years ago. Basically going back to a torque tube without a tube.
Founding member of the too many projects, too little time and money club.

My ongoing truck projects:
48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.

Re: Wheel hop under braking

Master cylinder - $33
Wilwood proportioning valve - $46
Misc fittings, brake line and fluid - $35
Amount invested in the collective knowledge base here to diagnose the problem - letís keep that quiet for the wivesí sake
Knowing itís plumbed right - I can sleep at night

The entire setup was plumbed backwards including the proportioning / brake switch valve. It now brakes with no hop / rear lockup. Traction Master keeps promising to send me a drawing but nothing yet. Stay tuned.
