Wheel Hop

My 2013 Camaro SS has real bad wheel hop from dead stop accelleration, even at first to second gear shift. I mean real bad. Any one have any sugestions on how to or what to do with my suspension too get rid of it?

A good place to start is with BMR Toe Rods and Trailing Arms. At least this is what I added to mine when I had the headers installed. You may also want to consider the BMR Lower Control Arms.

2SS L99, CAI, Kooks 1 7/8 headers and Kooks hi flow cats, MBRP Exhaust, Full Dyno Tune. BMR G8 Trailing Arms and Rear Toe Rods, Factory GFX, Devils Tail Side Stripes, Side Vent Stripes, Synergy Green Door Panels and SS Grill & Trunk Badges .

My SS has really bad wheel hop after it has sat for the night or after about 8-12 hours. But the wheel hop only lasts for about 5-10 min max of driving. So I just go easy on it. After about 5 minutes it goes away. But I'm looking to do some suspension mods in the future anyway.

Hmmm... the answer when I was still front wheel drive was to stiffen up the drivetrain mounts and front suspension bushing to prevent the oscillation from happening.

With maro's and the independent rear end, you also have bushing on the rear diff ... should they be stiffer? Or are they cracking? Split diff bushings are pretty common on a lot of the rear drive Cadillac. You can look up at them and see cracking in the bushings and that will let you know if the rubber is crapping out or not.

Trailing arms, toe rods, cradle bushings. Alignment may be off as well.
