The cause is mainly your lower control arms they flex way too much.:nonono: the quad shocks help get rid of some wheel hop but with their age they work as well.

I had horribly borderline retarded wheelhopp, then I changed-out my upper and lower CA's (the old bushings were torn to pieces) to MM lowers and FMS uppers, and never ever experienced any kind of wheel hopp since then. The wheehopp was just as bad with or without the quad-shocks installed, before I changed-out the CA's.
