Question wheel hop woes

I have an 85 k-30, long bed pick-up, with a 6 inch Skyjacker lift,[springs, not body or block lift.] My problem is when I get to about 50 mph I start getting some wheel hop. I am running super swampers, 36x12.50x16. I was wondering if ladder bars would cure this, and if so, can yall recomend the best brand?

Thanks in advance,

Sounds more like you may need your tires trued. Tractrion is already maintained at 50 mph. Traction bars prevents leaf spring wrap up.

What transfer case do you have in that thing? If you have the 208 with 6" you might be getting some driveline vibration also but I would bet most of your problem is the SSs. There is a cheap driveline fix if you are still running a 208, let me know if interested.
