Looking for recommendations on suspension components to reduce wheel hop. Anyone tried Hop Not or BMR etc?

Trailing arms won’t fix it. The guy that makes or who ever makes his hop not kits won’t answer the phone. I called and called and called. Nothing
For stock cars with stock hp a good set of tires helps. But in the end the ONLY fix it to replace the cradle bushings. That is what I am doing next month. Anyone that says replacing trailing arms or control arms is fooling themselves. Or they don’t make enough power.
The factory bushings are for smooth ride. And rubber bushings is a issue with any independent suspension no matter our cars mustangs ect

My Whiteline cradle bushings are due to arrive today. I'll put up the results after they are installed.

I have a BMR trailing arm on order with some Whiteline lower bushings for the arm. I heard that got rid of "most" of the wheel hop on an SRT with an A8 automatic. It's something you can do yourself in an hour for under $150. The cradle bushing I heard eliminates it, but it's a bit of a PAIN to install as you have to drop the rear end. You might try the trailing arm and see if it's enough.

Wheel hop is one thing, but what I also notice is the brief back and forth motion when I come to a stop...it is rather annoying. Do you guys notice this also?

I guess I've never noticed, I'll have to pay close attention

I've never noticed that but the "bucking" when trying to go real slow in first gear is drastically cut too now.
