If you've got C5 Corvette and the rear end hops around like a bunny rabbit with its head on fire, It isn't because you've got soft motor mounts...
I have wheel hop and the only thing that cured it in my other FWD car was to eliminate any toe change on acceleration. Buy changing all the stock rubber bushings with better ones. Shocks that do not dampen well will perpetuate the wheel hop but is not the cause. Wheel hop is more your suspension but not 100% but really close.
