    So basically unless i buy new springs i have to remove the blocks to make it stop doing the hopping? my friend did this same lift to his truck and it stopped doing that after awhile.

    Also a older truck with miles on it will axle wrap easier than a new truck because the springs are worn/softer. If it was my truck I would take the 3" block out and install a add-a-leaf and a smaller block. Every truck is a little differant so you may only need a 1"-11/2" block with the add-a-leaf.

    I guess i will get my U Bolts tightened next week and if that doesn't work just get some Traction Bars like SILVERADOTRAILBLAZER said i found a pair of some from Tuff Country for $182 as a pair. This seem's like this would make it not hop or anything after u install them.!?

    You may also want to look at your drive shaft angle to make sure you have not exceeded the allowable angle, which will cause vibration and early u-joint failure.
