    Also a new adjustable torque arm from one of the aftermarkert companies helps with wheel hop issues.

    re:

    I got rid of my wheel hop by installing Spohn's: LCA's with relocation brackets and torque arm. I also changed out my panhard rod while I was at it. I've put on 40,000 miles since then with no problems.

    I had no wheel hop when I was stock. Then once I added SFC's I started getting some and just kept getting worse. Once I put new LCA's it stoped I then added relocation brackets for even better traction. I now have zero wheel hop.

    afterall... that's what controls the up/down movement of your wheels.

    LCA is a band-aid solution that cerainly helps... but the source of the problem is bad damping... ie shocks... with proper damping, the problem will go away and better handling/confort is also achieved.

    Bilstein HD from Strano Auto are a good option. Don't neglect your suspension

    I'd agree with the HD, especially if keeping stock springs... you can always go revalved, but a bit more $.
    For adjustability, there is Koni, but that ain't too cheap.
