The main question you want to ask yourself is: "Which one looks the best?"

My answer: PFADT

They look awesome under your car cause they resemble a real structural member.
They work pretty well too.

Automatic trans swap = No wheel hop at 536rwhp w/ stock suspension!: Just kidding, I`ve used BMR stuff in the past on my 4th gen and it got rid of wheelhop I had w/ that car. They make very good stuff and a decent price. Those Pfadt trailing arms look really nice though!

1. What is your RWHP?
2. What is your wheel and tire package?
3. Is the wheel hop at the track or on the street?
4. Is the wheel hop temperature sensitive? ie. cold days, goes away when your tires are hot...
5. What RPMs are you luanching at?

A lot of things can contribute to this nasty problem, take a complete approach. I have seen some cars that trailing arms wont fix, some even had to go on to diff bushings and subframe bushings. It just depends on the car and driver. Pete is very knowlegable, and is more than happy to help. I can honestly say he is not just about selling a part, he wants to make a customer.

Always start with fondation. Pedders sub fram inserts or bushings and diff bushing has worked for the cars we prep.

If you asked me what the absolute first suspension mod should be for any customer doing any form of driving I would say cradle bushings. The soft OE bushings not only contribute to wheel hop but also create an unstable platform for the entire suspension and driveline. Replacing them with full poly bushings or upgrading them with poly inserts fixes multiple issues, not just one problem.

Since you specifically asked what is the best thing to cure wheel hop I will say Trailing Arms. Regardless of what transmission you have, how aggressive you drive, or how much horsepower you are making Trailing Arms will be the single most effective solution to eliminating your wheel hop. I would say that 90% of our customers eliminate their wheel hop just by installing Trailing Arms. The other 10% eliminated it by also adding cradle bushings and differential bushings...
