    Talking Rear End Thump??? Wheel Hop.

    Hey guys, When I 1-2 shift and even 2-3 shift there is a thump at the rear end...I was wondering if that was the bump stop or something else? Plus, whats the best way to get rid of the wheel hop on these cars??? Control arms or maybe new shocks? Appreciate the advice.

    has your LCA's been taken off recently? Check them and make sure they're not loose. They'll thump like that. Is it definitely the rear and couldn't be the trans mount?

    Relo brackets for the LCA's will help with the wheel hop.

    no they havent been off yet, and they dont seam to be lose. Are the relo kits a good idea even with aftermarket LCA's??? which company do you guys recommend?

    Is your car lowered. If yes it is your bump stops for sure. Mine hit all the time,at the track anyway. I take it easy on the street. I need relocation bracket's bad. I prefer and will buying soon BMR relocation's brackets. I have hotchkis lca's.
