if you still have your IRS and dont have the hop kit from amazon you need to get your head checked. i can drive my car now!! its like night and day. i left about 20 ft of rubber at a toll booth after putting it on today, then slammed 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th. before i would havent made it out of the toll area, the thing hopped like a jack rabbit before and now its strong and smooth. you need to get a set if your keeping the irs, this is as good as it gets

edit, i didnt even do the bushings.

Hey Mat, What setting do you use on the shocks, assuming that they are adjustable? I have crazzy wheel hop, with no mods yet. I tried the bushings and they only helped a little.

there was a note in the box saying they were on the best setting for hop. so i let them the way they were. the hop is so frustrating it made me not like beating on my car, thats why i bought it though...i need to get my chip reburnt for the exaust first though before i blow it up.

I think Postban recently posted up about this style of shock crapping out on him? Also, how much handling is lost with a setup like this? I'm assuming the shocks are run at a softer setting to aid in transfer and eliminate the hop.
