Either get a set of Cal-Tracs or the Shelby style traction bars. Stronger springs would help some but probably not eliminate the problem. It definitely can break something if you stay in it while it's going one, from engine mounts to spider gears to the snout of the third member......
Cal Tracs are easy to install, no welding required, they're not too conspicuous either. They require changing the bushing out of the front of the spring. The Shelby style underrider bars are much cheaper cost wise, but require welding of the front mount. You can also go the old school route with a set of bolt on traction bars, they will work, but they hang down quite low. If you go that route get the better set that takes place of the lower spring mount and not the kind that use a u-bolts to hold them on. I don't recommend those though.
