    i had trouble wiht this myself, i replaced motormounts, which helped, new struts and shocks, which helped, and what did the most was new urathane bushings in my front lower control arms. check for worn bushings

    all i have to say is if you have wheel hop get some adjustable shocks and it will help alot. probably the urethane bushing would help i havent tried them so i cant tell u for sure but i know the new shocks help alot.

    Anybody here have traction bars? I hear those will pretty much eliminate your wheel hop. I am planning on getting some pretty soon myself.

    I did, but with my bigger brakes they hit at full wheel lock, they did exactly what they are supposed to do.
