Upr control arms

Ordered me some upr upper and lowers also axle housing poly bushings hoping this will solve my wheel hop problem. I also put new shocks in the back
Last weekend

It should.
My hop problem was solved by just installing the lower Southside Lift bars on my 86 GT. Enabled me to be able to remove the quad shocks with no adverse effects too.

That may have increased your wheel hop problem.

Yeah, but they are called UMI Lift Bars now.
They also offer rebuild kits for old lift bars.
And, yes they work very well.

The UMI Lift Bars work great. You can actually feel the car body "lift" and force the tires harder into the pavement. IMO, on my car they work better than other aftermarket control arms.
They also have regular aftermarket control arms if that is your preference.
