Lowers will eliminate 90% of the wheel hop, you'll need uppers to get rid of it totally.

Whiteline would be best, but I recommend BMR. Just installed their Panhard bar last night, there products are extremely well made.

Non adjustable BMR lower control arms work well and are affordable. Uppers will not be necessary. If you have wheel hop just by lowering will help immensely.

I bought Whiteline's LCAs, adj panhard bar and panhard bar bracket to go with my Steeda Sport springs and Koni STRTs. Can't wait for the weather to warm up to see if they were worth the $$.

OP, I replaced both the lcas and uca as well as the torque mount all at the same time. That soft sorry *** bushing in the stock uca created a lot of drivetrain slop and the new polyurethane bushin made a huge difference. I would recommend doing all 3 of the items I just mentioned. You don't need to do it all at once, but I definitely recommend doing the uca and tq mount together
