The cheapest thing that works is the comp engineering ones. strange has nice ones with an external adjustment knob for aprox $75 each(I am not in the shop so I dont have the prices) If money is an issue , wait and buy the Strange ones. Jon

did you replace the bushings that the rear end side of the upper control arms mount to? if not, and you removed the quad shocks, that is probably the reason for the wheel hop.

....also, make sure that when you tightened up all the bolts the suspension was fully loaded on the ground..

I had the same problem with my bbk upper/lowers. No wheel hop with stock suspension, but after install it was there big time. Could never figure out how to stop it. I tried everything from tightening it all up with the load on the car, to removing quad shocks, to greasing up a lot, and also different settings on my old electronic controlled shocks. Oh well, don't have that car anymore, so no more worries.
