    Rear Shocks and rear control arms. I have BMR arms along with Bilstein HD shocks all the way around. Great setup.

    trailing arms and relocation brackets will be the biggest help.

    Both I and my buddy have BMR's and are happy with them. I don't here any noise from them. My buddies wheel hop was horrible, could'nt even do a burnout cause his wheels would hop like crazy...till he slapped in the BMR's.

    Good shocks
    Some Form of LCA's (I've seen a lot of broken BMRs)
    I've got the hotchkis
    A good torque arm with adjustment so you can properly set your pinion angle
    A panhard will help a little
    adjustable LCA's are kind of overkill

    LCA's, torque arm, and some LCA relocation brackets should do the trick.

    I was having a horrible wheel hop problem (stock shocks with 75k miles and eibach sportlines lol) I just wanted to try the cheapest route first so I bought 2 bilstiens for the rear, and wheel hop is gone, everything else is still stock!

    not saying it will fix everyones, problem but it fixed mine....shocks were just worn out!

    I'm going 12bolt soon, and then I'll get all the other supporting rear suspension mods then!
