OK Pete... I need to squash the wheel hop... what say you?


seems to be more prominent from the drivers side. doesn't happen often but when it does... it's pretty bad....

What do you recommend? would stiffening up the rear coilovers help?

Alignment specs are really required to answer this question. Can you post them?

After market arms are not the answer. Put another way, It ain't the arms.

In alphabetical order:

Alignment
Bush compliance
Coil Rate
Damping Rate
Driving Style
Tire Inflation
Tires

It isn't a stronger arm that makes a difference. It is because they have urethane bushes or spherical ends or less bush compliance. In a car like GTAHVIT's, with substantial power and suspension mods the first place we look is alignment, wheels and tires.

But what do I know? I just make it up as I go :facepalm:

No need. The OE specs have rear camber at -1 degree or more. That means you are luanching on the inside shoulder and not the full tire contact patch. Get back to the Dealer and have him set your car up to these GTAHVIT specs.

Front Camber -1
Front Toe 0
Rear Camber 0
Rear Toe In .05

Do you have Pedders extended range alignment bolts?
Have you timed your bushes?

Timing your 5th Gen Bushes

Step 1. Pull the car up on to a drive uplift.

Step 2. Loosen the following bolts/nuts:
Front:
---Inner Control Arm Bushing
---Inner Radius Rod
Rear:
---Trailing Arm Bushings (both ends)
---Toe Rod Bushings (both ends)
---Lower Control Arm Bushings (Inner)
---Upper Control Arm Bushings (Rearward)
---Lower Strut Bushings

Step 3.
Grab the subframes or sway bars, and jounce the car up and down a few times.

Step 4.
Tighten all of the nuts/bolts to spec.

Step 5.
Align the car at the new ride height.

When you said zeroed out, did you mean the adjuster was maxed out?

sorry... rookie mistake. zero'd out meant back to stock... :facepalm:

No I don't have the camber bolts, but they did time the bushes. at least they said they did.

Car feels balanced, not springy at all. so I'm guessing they did time them.

Break something.

It'll keep you occupied.

Do NOT listen to PQ! When he says "break something" I'm not sure he means on the car.

Where is that wheel spinning video...?

I think I may have earned another http://apps.rainn.org/ohl-bridge/check.jpg

Answer #1 - Remove the wheels. This will get rid of wheel hop.
Answer #2 - Remove the axles and/driveshaft. This also gets rid of wheel hop.
Answer #3 - Leave THR22 parked. This disables the wheel hop option.
