--Wheel Hop Solution from LG Motorsports--

Running into wheel hop issues with your Camaro?

Tried LCA's, tires, toe links and still having issues? This bolt on solution is just want you need to stiffen the entire rear suspension and chassis of your Camaro.








14 bolts and you are done! No modifications are required to your car, and much easier to do than dropping the entire rear cradle for bushing inserts

Our rear section kit is designed to positively locate, and hold the rear subframe and differential in place under heavy load. All Camaro owners know the issues facing the car with wheel hoop and chassis flex, and this is just the solution you have been looking for. By locking in the rear subframe and differential mount you will now be free of annoying wheel hoop and be able to put the power to the ground when you need it the most.

Made of lightweight rectangular tubing, our rear bracing is very strong without a penalty of a big weight increase.


How is this for a stiff chassis!!



Kit includes all mounting brackets, hardware, and instructions. Allows the use of the OEM cross brace.

Wheel hop? I have all the other stuff and still have it on occasion. This solves it once and for all?

I have an auto. It only hopped if hitting it at 35 or 40 on a roll and yes, it cured that. It makes the launches much more stable and tracks straighter on the shifts instead of pitching sideways on the 1-2 & 2-3 shift.

This looks like the rear half of your full chassis kit... is it?

What do you give up by not doing the front along with it?

This is the rear section and the most important part of the kit. The rear does the most out of all of it. The entire kit will brace the front section to the rear and also help beef up the front subframe.

As for the wheel hop though, the rear part takes care of that.

Does it add any noise or harshness to the ride? Any negatives or is the only thing noticed is less wheel hop/tighter chassis for cornering?

I have seen zero issues with this package installed. Little to no change in ride quality (remember no bushing, shock, or spring change), and zero noise issues.

Thanks a lot Anthony, I'll be ordering it up soon. Mine wheels hops pretty bad even after adding trailing arms. The stock lower control arms seem pretty flimsy. I think I'll try your braces first, then LCAs and toe links if it still needs more.
