Default What all do I need to eliminate wheel hop?

I am lowered, just rebuilt rear and want to stop the wheel hop, even though I surprisingly don't have to much now. Don't want to spend to much $$ but just little things that would help. All I'm sure of so far is picking up some relocation brackets since I never grabbed them when I lowered it. What else would be good?

Relocation brackets and a set of poly bushed non-adjustable lower control arms work for a lot of cars.

Like everyone else has said a good set of lower control arms and lower control arm relocation brackets should take care of your wheel hop issue. Here are some pictures of the parts we manufacture that would help you out. If there is anything we can do for you let us know.

Sweet, simple enough. What is the difference between adjustable and non adjustable lower control arms anyways?

Adjustables are for cars running a larger wheel/tire, or those with an aftermarket rearend just to be sure the rearend is positioned correctly in the wheel well. There is no performance advantage to the adjustables versus the non-adjustables.

I already have new non adjustable lower control arms on my car but would I have to get new adjustable ones when I decide lower my car and get 18" wheels in the next few months? with the addition of relocation brackets?
