Wheel hop after install. And doesn’t seem to have lowered it at all. Can anyone help?

Yes and they are shorter than the old ones. Which makes me think they are the wrong ones.

Lowering blocks are the way to go, not so sure about shackles on a RC.

Drop Shackles do not work on an RC. Also the rear eye shackle angle needs to remain correct for proper spring rate and travel. Good point of reference here...

Leaf Spring Tech: Shackle Length & Shackle Angle

A big improvement in traction and limiting wheel hop can be obtained by installing poly bushings in front, rear eyes and shackle.
