Lots of people have found out otherwise, so in the unlikely event you DO still get wheelhop, a fresh set of quads (Gabriel 14039's) WILL cure it.

Ah, one of the great debates. :)

MFE speaks the truth. There are too many variables to say "toss 'em." You might be OK without them, but don't do anything permanent until your 100% sure you don't have issues, and even then there's no way I'd cut off the mounts. Even tire compound changes could mean the difference between hop or not.

You know your probably right I think TomR was able to finally to get rid of his by doing something to his heim joints. I don't know what the heim joint is. So now i'm kinda lost.

With after market control arms and quality shocks (say...Strange 10 way) there should be no reason you would need the quad shocks.

You don't see the faster stangs using their quad shocks do ya?!?!

FYR: A heim joint is an end link employing a spherical bearing which allows articulation, but no movement. A bushing, on the other hand, can (will) deform and allow some sideways, longitudinal, and/or vertical motion.

Don't cut the brackets off til you're sure...AGAIN. But I'm starting to not GAF about taking the time for quality advice anymore.

You can lead a horse to water....

At least the OP says he's going to try it before making a decision. However, those spouting 100% "pitch 'em, you don't need 'em" just make me shake my head. Even in the face of evidence to the contrary, they still hold to the misinformation.

The thing that really gets me? Why not just run them regardless (unless wheel/tire combo precludes it)? And the bit about "cut the brackets off the rear housing for the clean look" made me laugh.

Glad I can entertain you...Okay everyone. Put your quad shocks back on your car because this is a DRAG RACING forum. That is if you didn't CUT the brackets off the housing. Just concentrate on how to improve your 2.0 60'. Or maybe try autocross???

If you have stock tubs, you can run quads. Quit being a ####ing retard about it.
