Stage 1 is a must have for anyone seeking that performance car driving experience. Your Dodge Challenger, Charger, Magnum, or Chrysler 300 will drive and handle like it's on rails. Although, not all automatic driven cars experience extreme wheel hop, they do still share the same cradle movement issues. This unwanted movement at the cradle also minimizes the effectiveness of other suspension upgrades such as aftermarket springs, coilovers, stiffer sway bars, etc. The Hop Not Stage 1 kit should be your first suspension upgrade for your best results.
Stage 1 consist of four CNC machined spacers, two special flat washers, and a tool/sleeve that’s provided for easy removal of the OEM plates located at the front cradle mounts. The proprietary spacers are designed to attach to the bottom of each rubber cradle bushing/mount and eliminate the movement that the rubber mounts allow at the cradle or sometimes referred to as the rear sub-frame. Each spacer is machined to extremely tight tolerance levels to ensure that the small tapered lip of the spacer seats against the inner edge of the sleeve found in each OEM rubber mount while bottoming out against the inner spacer at the same point.
Dodge Challenger, Charger, Magnum, and Chrysler 300 owners with automatic transmissions can enjoy the same handling improvements as manual transmission owners by eliminating unwanted movement felt at the rear cradle. The boat rocking sensation felt as the car is rocked back and forth at highway speeds is eliminated with this kit. This upgrade is a great addition to your Challenger’s suspension, even if you are currently using aftermarket sway bars, coil overs, lowered springs, etc.
Consider adding the adjustable sway bar link when installing Stage 1 on a six speed car.
Warning: the machined spacer kit must be installed as a set. The front spacers are a different design than the rear. Never drive the car without all four spacers installed. Installing less than the full set will allow part of the rear cradle to move at the ones that are still rubber only and cause failures at the ones that are rigid mounted. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Stage 1 must be installed prior to adding Stage 2 in any application.
Stage 2 is designed to enhance Stage 1 once the rear cradle movement is addressed. Expect tight, performance car handling and wheel hop control like you've never experienced before. You're missing out on one of the most dynamic performance improvements you can add to your vehicle if you think this is strictly a six speed issue. Although, automatic driven Challengers, Chargers, Magnums, and Chrysler 300 don't suffer from the extreme wheel hop that most six speeds vehicles are experiencing, they do all share the same unwanted movement at the rear cradle bushings/mounts. The boat rocking sensation mentioned in the Stage 1 summary and the suspension flex are keeping you from enjoying the full potential of your vehicle's IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) even if you've already added stiffer springs, sway bars, coilovers, etc. We accomplish this level of performance with our proprietary CNC produced brackets that allow us to attach a horizontal stabilizer from each wheel hub to the rear mounting area of the cradle itself. The rear cradle frame is by far the strongest item under these cars. All late model Dodge Challengers, Chargers, Magnums, and Chrysler 300 have a five link IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) that offers a comfortable ride, but makes performance handling and wheel hop or sometimes referred to as power hop difficult to control. These IRS systems have ten rubber bushings per side, twenty four in all if you include the four that are used in the cradle mounts. Stage 1 eliminates the movement at the four cradle bushings/mounts, but then it's up our Stage 2 kit to control the flex of the IRS components. Although, these cars don't suffer from the same type of axle wind up that the older versions did, they do endure a tightening or flexing of all the IRS arms, links, and rubber bushings that must be controlled. Stage 2 works with the normal up and down motions of the suspension components with minimal affects on ride quality. Stage 2 allows the IRS arms, links, and rubber bushings to tighten, but then it briefly holds it in avoidance of becoming a repetitive hop as traction is gained and lost.
Each lower aluminum bracket goes through a five cut CNC process then receives a special bend that allows us to take advantage of two mounting points at the wheel hubs for maximum strength. You could work your cars suspension from full extension to fully compressed and won't have any clearance issues...we already have. The upper stabilizer mounting brackets start with the same rear machined spacers used in our Stage 1 kit, then we weld on a special CNC produced angle bracket and locating pin that utilizes existing holes in each side of the cradle's frame.
Plant the rear tires like never before. In fact, you'll have the ability to launch harder than ever, even if you launch with wheel spin because our Stage 2 Stabilizer kit will make the tires bite within a few feet. Understandably, the type and size of the tires you're using will have an affect, as well as road conditions and the level of power you're putting to the wheels, but you'll experience major traction and handling improvements in any application as compared to without having the Hop Not products.
Stage 2 is now available for lowered vehicles. Just be sure to select the correct item when you check out.
Please note; The standard Stage 2 Stabilizer Kit and the Stage 2 Stabilizer Kit For Lowered vehicles will not interchange. Only install the Stage 2 Stabilizer Kit For Lowered Vehicles on Vehicles that have been lowered and the standard Stage 2 Stabilizer Kit on vehicles that have a stock, unchanged ride height/stance. If you've lowered your vehicle any and haven't replaced the OEM shocks with shorter versions you may have to push the suspension up enough to install our Stage 2 Stabilizers at the time of install because although you've lowered your vehicle, the stock shocks will let the suspension hang to the full extension while the tires are off the ground. Also, be aware that the stock shocks are the limiting/stops and they only have a certain amount of travel before they will bottom out. For example, a stock SRT Challenger shock sits at about 2 and 1/4 inches as measured on the shock body itself on a car that has not been lowered and maxes out at about 5 inches of travel, so if you've lowered the car two inches you'll have very little travel left before the shock is bottomed out. This may cause a very harsh ride and eventually cause the shock to blow out or cause other issues. With this in mind, it's best to replace the OEM shocks when you lower your vehicle accordingly.

This adjustable sway bar link is a key part in controlling your cars wheel hop. It works with Stage 1 to ensure that all is “not equal” to the rear wheels. The link is preset at ¼” longer then stock length but, should always be compared to the stock link at each install. Do not exceed ¼” shorter or longer in any application.
This new Hop Not adjustable sway bar link is based on an OEM link; only threaded, then a 3/4" hex connector is added to make this unit adjustable. The hex connector uses 12mm right hand threads on one end and 12mm left hand threads on the other for easy on car adjustments. A small groove marks the end with the left hand threads.
The Adjustable Stabilizer Link should be installed at the right front location. This creates a slight weight difference at the rear wheels/tires to work along with Stage 1 and or Stage 2 in controlling wheel hop. The adjustable link is pretty much intended for six speed cars unless you have the need to even out or preload your cars suspension system.
