Has anyone with wheel hop used the Anti-wheel hop axles and noticed a reduction of wheel hop with just that change?
So the theory is different diameter axles twist and unload at a different rate thus eliminating the cause of wheel hop. With that in mind I have 1000 horse rated DSS axles currently which are 1 1/8" diameter. I'm considering getting one of their 1400 horse rated axles which are 1 3/8" diameter to put on my passenger side if it would help with wheel hop.That’s why they are called what they are called; they work.
I did it opposite of you. Axles were my first attempt and it helped but was still awful. I then did nearly the same mods back there as you over time and it very rarely hops and I drive aggressively at times with the 3.91s it is a lot of fun. Give the axles a shot it may be enough.So the theory is different diameter axles twist and unload at a different rate thus eliminating the cause of wheel hop.

I already have king springs w/bags, koni shocks, whiteline diff insert bushing, and whiteline sway bar yet I still get wheel hop in certain situations. I thought maybe axles would finish it off completely. Just thought I'd ask for real world results since not every product works as well as the manufacturer claims.
What do you consider low mileage? My 2004 has 27,500 miles on it. All bushings were dry rotted and hard as a rock all over car. I bought the car new in 2004, never driven in snow or rain and still bushings were all broken down. I have installed Gforce 850HP Axles and Inner stubs and replaced all rear bushings with polyurethane ones, including rear diff insert. This stopped the wheel hop for me.That's a great question that I too would love to have an answer for. I have what I consider a low mileage 2006 with bushings that appear to be like new, at least what I can see of them. But I've got some serious wheel hop that I would like to try to fix with axles alone. Maybe I'm dreaming.........
I've only done 1-3 above and in that order. I very rarely experience any wheel hop and when it does show up it is on a crappy road and is pretty mild. When I hit the drag strip for the first time last Summer I didn't feel any wheel hop on the track all day. All this on street tires. In my version of #3 I did the insert first then the Harrop cover. The Harrop WAS an improvement all around (and just looks cool).Wheelhop varies from car to car dependent on power and the driver. Manual transmission cars suffer more then automatics. Wheelhop should be addressed in this order as follows:
(1) Firmer Springs such as Lovells 350s or 370s...do the shocks while you are in there
(2) Poly Subframe Bushings W92350 or Pedders EP1145
(3) Harrop Cover is preferable to diff insert but the Whiteline W92616 or Pedders EP1157 insert does help.
(4) Drag Bags...play with the air pressures...What you run on the street will be different then the track.
(5) DSS anti-wheelhop axels
The above WORKS well into high 9s with good tires. PM me if I can help
Kind of where I'm at right now is with the right amount of tire spin at the right road temp it will hop, but most of the time it doesn't. At the track one time when I didn't bring the rpm's up fast enough during the burnout the rear went to the right and it hopped a bit during the burnout. That was very odd and if I bring the rpm's up high fast it stays straight and doesn't hop.I had wheel hop so bad that the windshield wipers would come on. This was on a launch at the track with drag radials. I had a Harrop diff cover, Pedders springs, shock, and drag bags. I installed the anti-wheel hop axles and the hop is 95% gone. Every once in a while on the street I will get just a little hop if the conditions are exactly right. X amount of throttle, temp of the road and tires, etc. Nothing that I can't live with.
