Re: rear leaf spring lowering blocks

Greater tendency to wheel hop is a big one

The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1v3CzvQ9e_w '68 350 4 speed

I have 1" blocks with Hotchkis springs on my '67. No wheel hop but I agree with Joe that the extra leverage created could cause it if the springs weren't up to the task.
