I know that the real fix for front end hop on coil springs is 4 link but i just need to get some shocks for right now which ones?

I was going to get some summit racing drag shocks, only problem is i can only get them in 70/30 dampning, not sure if that will be enough to keep the front end from bouncing, let me know what you guys think

I'm not sure if they will help or hurt, but I have some procomp 9000's sitting in my garage. If you have a chance to test them at all let me know and they are yours Dustin.

rcd sells shocks that are perfect for the front end for wheel hop and they make a nice 4 link thats pretty reasonable.

Re: what shock you coil spring guys running

Im bringing this one back from the dead, rs9000s didnt work on my truck, still hopped like crazy. Im going to try a set of summit shocks but the information is a bit confusing...

here is what is posted on competition engineerings website about there shocks.
Competition Engineering's Front Drag Shocks are adjustable in three ratios: 90/10, 80/20 and 60/40. These ratios reflect the percentage of force required to extend and compress the shock absorber.
This seams backwards to what we need, we need hard to compress, easy to extend.

I think you would need them the other way for pulling. Those are drag shocks
90/10 in the front and 60/40 rear for a 2wheel drive to transfer the weight to back. The front would lift and hold and the rear would drop and hold.
you want a 10/90 dont know if they make that.

Did you end up strapping the front end down?
