    I was getting some wheel hop, so I welded some metal on my LCAs to box them, and installed some stiffer bushings. Now I don't get wheel hop. The metal cost me something like $20 at Home Depot, and the bushings cost me $40.

    I found some 1LE bushings being sold on EBAY. Summit Racing has bushings.
