    Nice find. Might have to add this to a future install of mine. Why does it say V8 tho?

    I think they should leave out V8 in the title of the auction. They say its inspired by the OEM ZQ8 one. Didnt know know S10 ZQ8's came stock with a V8. lol

    Re: New Hop Shock Kit

    seems to me that I have ridden in a s10 with a factory hop-shock, and it still had wheel hop issues...

    I have the OEM hop shock and it eliminated all wheel hop, under all conditions.

    I can't see it being worth $150 unless it's definitely going to completely eliminate wheel hop.
