I was wondering if there was any upgrades to my suspension so that I could spool up before launching. If i power brake at all i spin through 1st. I would either like to be able to launch in 4wd or make my back end hook up better.

Gotta do 4x4 launch. It would take way to much messing around to try and make it hook in 2x4. I would recomend a set of spring clamps for the rear, tierod sleeves and at least cognito braces for the front and lowering the torsion bars is a must also!

never mind i see you have a lift now, dont do any hard 4x4 launches and get a straight centerlink and tierod sleeves for even light 4x4 launches!

there are traction bars out there, but your best bet is to launch in 4wd. You will need tierod sleeves though so they don't snap like twigs. What tires (brand) are you using...I know that makes a difference too.

where do you guys buy your centerlink and tierod sleeves?
PPE The whole kit is available here. You can also get them from Kennedydiesel.com (tierod sleeves). Super diesel performance is the guy that designed them, but if you go to their site, it redirects you to PPE's site.

I can launch in 2wd without much spin. Though the last set of tires I had would do nothing but spin...even without throttling up with my foot on the brake! I had Michelin's before, but now I am running the Good Year Silent Armor and couldn't be more happy with the tires.

Whend doing slow hard turns, it will feel like its in 4x4 almost, and on the right road surface you will hear the front tires howl a bit as they slide a bit. with the center link you can align the truck for driving straight but as you turn the wheels further each way it becomes out of alignment and want to drag one of the tires a bit. It nothing much to worry about for the added security it gives the front end!!
