Got rid of ALL of the rest of the hop and by the looks of the truck as it goes by in the videos, were damn near set just right for compression/extension.
I might try them. I have Rancho 9000s, but they arent quite enough. Its either dual shock or find a better one.

I wondered about trying some bilstein 24-065283. They are appropriate length and have 398/94 valving.

To be fair, this is in a dual shock application. I have Bilsteins in the stock location but they didn't do anything for the hop. These drag shocks won't work as a single for our trucks....fully extended they're only 14 inches lol, and only about 1 1/2 in diameter, so wouldn't be enough for full driving use.

I fabbed mounts to put them up to the front of my axle, so they take the majority of the brunt, and then the main shocks help bring up the rest. I don't actually have any pictures but it works out pretty slick and uses the sway bar end link holes on the axle for the bottom mount. With those and the adjustable bumpstops I made our of the stock ones it takes about 10 minutes to go from full street duty to full track duty.

Ahhh ok. I definitely want to keep it streetable. Share your dual shock mount when you get a chance, I've been looking for an easy but robust way to do it.
