Looks to me that the rear is too stiff, needs to be able to squat down for better grab. I see you also have clearance issues to do that. If you are getting better traction the back should drop down some which helps bring weight from the front onto the rear tires as it will try to lift the front off the ground.

I was suprized. I dont have a traction problem at all. Ive talked a locacl shop that specializes in suspensions and there gona put together a set of leafs about the equivalent to the old mopar superstock springs. Then test to make sure there equil pounds for each side
