Bump pads are all done and front end is all back together. Still waiting on my tranny.
I have a question last year at the dunes going up the hills in 4x4 the front end had a lot of wheel hop my caster is at 5* which i think is correct or should be close enough right? Could my shocks maybe cause it to do this? by not having enough dampening maybe? Also the front end was pretty bouncy in the wooped out section would a better shock help with this?
What do you guys recomend for shocks?
Thanks
