Wheel hop

Hi guys,

It has been a while since I posted a thread. I was busy with work and studies and left a BMR box sealed for 2 years on my shelf.

My SS has only minor mods (TB and CAI) and I bought BMR toe rods, trailing arms, and cradle bushing, planning for a project on my old V6 which I traded for the SS.

The question is do I have to install all these parts to stop the wheel hop or the rods and arms will do it ?

Im not planning to put more bolt ons.

Thanks

The Cradle Bushings are a Key!

The original owner of my 2013 SS put BMR lowering springs in the front/rear of car. I don't know exact part number of springs. I believe he left everything stock. I do have wheel hop especially on these rough roads when getting on it (its a manual) Are you saying Cradle Bushings is all I need to tame my rear suspension to make it more composed during higher speeds??

i used to have severe wheel hop issues. i installed the bmr trailing arms, outer trailing arm bushings, and toe links and the wheel hop is alllllllmost completely gone.......even with MPSS 335 30 20s

i think if you have them already, just go ahead and install them.

Yep. I have the links, trailing arms , cradle bushings and upper rear arm bushings in a anti wheel hop pagage from JDP. No wheel hop, rearend stays in place and the ride quality is the same

No I was responding to the OP who was asking if he could just install his Trailing Arms & Toe Rods and be OK.

These THREE items in combination will get rid of the wheel Hop - Trailing Arms, Toe Rods And Cradle Bushings!
