Wheel hop?

When i put my camaro in S mode and get into the throttle about half way, it feels like there is wheel hop. Not sure if it is wheel hop but thats the best way i can explain it. Not sure what it really is. Has anyone had or experienced this, what is it?

does the back end vibrate up and down? Are you hearing very short chirps like the tires are leaving the ground and then when they hit make a chirping noise?

it feels like there's a hop, iam not in WOT so i don't think there's enough power there to actually cause wheel hop, no chirp

It sure is wheel hop. The rear trailing arms are very flimsy and have soft rubber bushings. You need to eliminate that by installing some aftermarket rear trailing arms. I went with SPOHN from JDP Motorsports. Wheel hop went bye-bye! Give Jordan a call. He will hook you up with the best prices guaranteed!

Well car going to Jannety Racing in 2 weeks for S/C install and a few other goodies.
I guess i will add trailing arms to the list.

Yep, it's wheel hop. Even though GM used different diameter axles on each side the cars still wheel hop.
Our axles have our proven anti wheel hop technology, you dont get any wheel hop and if you do it is very slight (like on wet roads).
It's all in the axle material (300m) and the twisting properties.

Thanks
Chris
