Personally, I like the BMR arms with the QA1 Rod Ends instead of bushings, but the Pfadt stuff is definitely nice too.

That is exactly what I have. But I also have the diff and rear subframe bushings. I done a few very hard launches at Indy 5200rpm drop with a lot of slip and not one hop.

The root cause of wheel hop is the IRS twisting in the sub-frame. Followed by changes in toe as the bushings in the OEM toe link compress and decompress. Third on the list is the same issue of compressing and decompressing bushings in the trailing arms. Those are 'mechanical' causes of wheel hop. In an IRS vehicle alignment is critical for wheel hop free launches as are the tires and launch / driving style.

Before you buy any parts, it would be beneficial to walk through your vehicle and your expectations for performance.

What is your RWHP?
What wheels and tires are you running?
When is wheel hop an issue for you? At the track? On the street?
Are you lowered?
What other suspension modifications have you made?
Do you know your alignment specs?
What are your tire pressures?

The Pfadt Rear Arm Package will address some of the factors that lead to wheel hop. If you have not upgraded your rear cradle bushings I would recommend starting there. Give the article below a quick look and if you have any questions let me know.

Those parts are definitely not bad by any means and will help with the wheel hop. We also offer some very affordable trailing arms and toe rods too if you are interested. There are a few key suspension components that really help get the wheel hop under control, the trailing arms and toe rods area couple important pieces to make that happen. There is also the outer trailing arm bushings, rear cradle bushings, differential bushings, and upper rear control arm bushings that help with wheel hop. The key to controlling wheel hop is to limit the movement in rear cradle/rear suspension/differential. There are so many variables that contribute to wheel hop that every car is a little different in what it takes to make that happen. Power level, transmission type, tire specs, weather, and road conditions are just a couple variable that influence wheel hop.

Before I would be able to recommend any particular parts I would need to know what your goals are for the car and what kind of driving you are going to be doing. I would be more than happy to go over this stuff with you so just let me know.
