Ok, so are you working on this? Couple months ago you said you'd have more info in a few days. Just wondering if I'm gonna have to buy them from someone else or if you're working on something still.

Well, I am, and I have, but its not done. Mostly because projects are lagging as usaul. So I'm dealing with them.

I can tell you whats in the kit.
Rear lower control arm bushings
Rear differential stabilizer (a serious shot at it)

This will reduce most if not all of the front back movement to a little bit of nothing.

If that doesn't fix you then I have:
Traction bar.
Then...
Rear control arm mount reinforcement.

If that still does not fix it,
new reinforced lower control arm

If you still have wheel hop:
Shocks, springs, and sidewall stiffness.

Professional dragsters have wheel hop, some amount of effort has to be put into controlling your launch through clutch engaugement, and the onset of power. If you don't hit the spring with the hammer it wouldn't be excited in the first place.
