Wheel Hop

I have a 67 Camaro that has very nasty wheel hop. The hop is so bad that every time I get on it hard, something breaks.-Alternator Brackets, Power Steering Brackets, Motor mounts, etc. I have even popped the rear speaker out!
Any suggestions?

WELCOME to Hotrodders.com ...

As a Moderator here and a former Camaro owner ... I would like to be the first to WELCOME you ...

67 Camaros generally have more wheel hop issues than the 68 and 69's. Chevrolet installed multi leaf springs on any Camaro with any serious horsepower in 68 and 69. They also staggered the shocks to help this problem.



I installed a set of traction bars on mine ... similar to the ones above. Helped a good bit ...

Did you install performance multi leaf springs or standard ones. The performance ones will help. If you look in a restoration catalog such as Classic Industries I think they sell a different style traction bar that GM used on just the right side. I don't know how well it works though. I put in some performance rear springs from Global West and they solved 90% of the problem I was having with my 1967 Camaro. I had to install traction bars like the ones shown to cure the rest of it.

you could get your self a set of cal tracs . spings and bar assm or as nicknamed launcher spings.

they are mono leaf springs with a bar mounted solid at the shock plate and the front of the bar mount has a slider to prevent axle wind up.

I am planing to put this set up on my charger next spring
