Had one and hated it :cool: but that would be a solution...

A quick answer like: air bags, pinion brace, rubber insert etc. would be nice though ;)

would also be easier than searching 550 threads yeah?

Poly or Delring rear control Arm bushings and good tires.

I remember seeing not too long ago that by reinforcing the jack point area helps quite a bit BUT: For details you will need to use the search function..:)

You don't eliminate wheel hop, you minimize it. You've listed a few things that will help, so did Ricardo. There is no one thing that will do it. And what works for me won't work for you because every car handles just differently enough.

Most people say air bags and stiffening the rear suspension. I on the other hand prefer to soften the suspension and the tires. [shrug] Experiment. You have nothing to lose because there is no one thing that is going to stop it from happening unless you count not dumping the clutch as a solution ;)

I thought I read a while back, Duffy said something about a Dual Mass clutch would fix the problem.

wheels and tires first, they have to be balanced, then mass balance, car has to be balanced center, if weight is added to rear and hop is less, then car is front heavy, a good alignment shop can help with basics, then it's bushings, ends, etc. also sometimes driveshaft can be unbalanced
