Yes, they work to prevent wheel hop. Do they make your tires get better traction? A resounding NO. They should really be called wheel hop bars, but that would sound too goofy *LOL*.

You'll always get what you've always got

this may be a stupid question, but how are you doing the upside-down question mark?

The Caltracs type that feed force back into the leaf spring...or the torque link type that soften the hit to the tires might help a bit but the underride/override Shelby type, as Johnpro states, just fight axle wrap under acceleration and braking. Which is a better traction situation than the axle a bouncin and twistin without control.

Go with the Traction-master (Shelby type), they will keep it more "original" and they eliminate wheel-hop - mine made a huge difference even when I had my piss-poor shot engine.
These have to be welded to the frame, there are others that bump the frame that are easier to install, I like the look of the traction-masters too.

You can use the character map on you computer or press the alt key + 0191.. ¿¿¿

Once you release the alt key the upside down question mark will appear...
