Wheel hop

I cannot believe there hasn't been anything posted in here about the wheel hop on the GT500. I've searched, but don't see any threads...so here goes mine.
What's the best remedy to eliminate it or at least greatly reduce it?? My 2009 Shelby is becoming less & less fun to drive because it's so pronounced. And now I have a "Check Traction Control" message that pops up in conjugation with the hop, even with TC turned off. Happens in any gear that will spin the tires 1st - 3rd. Any suggestions??

Well,The only thing I could say is maybe putting on lower control arm brackets
that increase the effect of the control arms and maybe after market heavy duty
control arms.Do you have it lowered at all?
Maybe if it was lowered it might also help the wheel hop.

Installed a double adj. UCA and billet LCA's, seems to have solved the problem..
There are no threads because we just take care of it..

My grandpa's 05 GTO had this bad too, its the IRS not holding it down like a solid would. Like the people above said, it can be taken care of.

This car is a solid rear axle.

Car is still at stock height. I've read that it's due mainly to the weak bushings and bad angle of the LCA...Ford made it something like 30% stronger, which might work if it was only made 30% more power than the GT.
