The best way to prevent wheel hop is to purchase a set of rear air bags for one
or both of the rear coil springs. When inflated, the increased force helps plant
the wheels to the ground with more force. This causes the wheels to resist
hopping until reaching a higher rpm.

Front polyurethane differential bushings also help keep the rear end housing
from jumping around. Others have suggested that in addition to the bags and
bushings, a larger diameter rear sway bar has helped with hop. These
modifications will not cure wheel hop, but will help to greatly reduce it.
