Wheel hop

I have a '23 T, split wishbone front suspension with shocks to prevent wheel hop. I encounter an annoying hop from say 40-55 mph. The Avenger tires I believe are balanced but are polyester.

Does anyone recommend a tie rod stabilizer shock (yuck) or another solution.
Thanks,
Dan

What exactly do you mean when you say "hop"? Does your front end change lanes when you hit a bump? What steering box are you using? Do you have some pics of your front suspension set up?

'23 T wheel hop solved, I guess I should have said shimmy instead of hop. Anyway, I

corrected the tire pressure all around and adjusted the toe in to 1/8" and got rid of 97% of the shimmy.
