If you are having an issue with wheel hop, then I would suggest investing in polyurethane control arm bushings (works magic) and a lower stress bar. These two things eliminated my wheel hop problems completely. I did the dogbone a long time ago and it did help a bit. The cup kit will help also by putting the car's weight more directly over the wheels. I'm still on stock shocks/struts, that's my problem. My front end picks up worse than a fox body.
Yea. I might get a set of steelies and run some drag radials up front if I want to get into this hardcore but I dunno. We will see how happy I am after my new setup.
