    Wheel hop.

    I just put in a 9 in moser rear, and the car is lowered. I have lower control arms and brackets on it set to the lowest spot. And still getting some wheel hop. I had it with the stock rear but when i put the lower control arms, and brakets on it stopped. Any suggestions?

    You are probably just putting down to much power to the rear wheels.

    Might have to go with and adjustible panhard rod and relocation bracket. What PSI are you running in your tires?

    since your lowered you really need adjustable lower control arms and adj panhard rod. Do you have subframe connecters as well?

    Pan hard bar isn't going to help wheel hop IMO. Wheel hop is controlled by the LCA's, relocation brackets and the torque arm. The LCA angle as well as the TA controls how the rear end is planted against the ground under hard acceleration.

    Are you sure everything is torqued to spec?

    The 9" sits up higher than the 10 bolt so even with the LCA relocation brackets sit higher relative to where they would be on a 10 bolt.

    I will say that tires will have some influence also as Rich mentioned.

    Is the SLP TA you have adjustable? If so, did you adjust your pinion angle after being lowered?
    It's on jackstands.

    Also, you don't need adjustable LCA's. Mine aren't adjustable and I am lowered with a 9" and have no wheel hop with 500rwhp. My wheels sit perfectly centered in the wheel well

    Yes it's an adjustable torque arm. And I have the rearend set at negative 1. it does set just a scosh higher in the back end. But not much. I also need a new rear sway bar. I tried using the stock 1 and its rubbing on the rear end. Could that be some of the problem. And what's the best 1 to use with a 9 inch.

    Yeah mine lca's are not adjustable. And the rear end set dead on center. And I'm sure everything is torque right.

    I'm running the stock rear sway bar also and while it's definitely a tight fit, it does barely clear. They sell a relocation kit for it if you want to keep the OEM one and want more clearance.

    If you plan on replacing it, you have to replace both the front and rear sway bars together. They work together. Buying just the rear sway bar may cause oversteer.

    I'm going to say that having your rear sway bar stock and it barely touching the pumpkin is not your issue.

    What tires are you running?

    I have my pinion angle set to -2 degrees btw. I would definitely check the LCA bolts and the torque arm bolts to ensure they are torqued properly. That's an easy check and doesn't cost anything.
