Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
In my 1999 Jeep Wrangler I get bad wheel hop when rear posi spins in snow. How do I correct this
Wheel hop is generally associated with racemobiles, but the same general rules apply here too. Make sure that ALL bushings on springs, control arms, stabilizer bars etc are in good condition. Make sure that shocks are good as well. If you have a lift kit, or worn springs (sagging), check that correct pinion angle has not been compromised (I generally set angle at 2 to 4 degrees down, at rest. This prevents excessive "up" position during loading which can cause binding of rear "u" joint.. On vehicles which are consistently subjected to heavy initial power transfer loading, I sometimes also add an adjustable pinion bumper between the frame and differential to mitigate "wrap-up". Other than that, just stop spinning it so hard when in snow...it's bad for the driveline, and usually innefective in negotiating poor conditions.
