Rear Suspension questions

Hi guys, Was the Lightning rear suspension different than the non-Lightning trucks?

I have a 1992 F150 4x4 with GT40 Intake & heads, headers and a mild cam. I get SEVERE wheel hop as soon as I get into the gas, and was wondering if the Lightning trucks had additional control arms or something.

the lightnings have slapper traction bars. they are leafs with a bumper on them that hit leaf spring to limit axle twist. they actually don't work that well. my 95 lightning has wheel hop too. latter bars is the was to go on these trucks. check out nloc.net for more lightning info.

These are what you want. They will stop all wheel hop issues.

The rearend housing on a lightning is a little more heavy duty if I remember right.
