    The reports on the Specter Werkes bushings that only worked in the 2004-2005 models varied. A few reported the near elimination of wheel hop (Twitch), but most reported only partial reduction of wheel hop. This fix preceded the axle option by a number years and there were quite a few that tried them.

    (I installed the axles first, and they eliminated 100% of my wheel hop. I installed Specter Werkes bushings later for their other benefits.)

    I have not seen any reports for the newer, more complete cradle bushing replacements. I am somewhat skeptical about their capacity to totally cure wheel hop mostly because GM resorted to the asymmetric axles with the V2, which suggests that a stiffer cradle attachment is only part of what is required, but I could be wrong.

    The Spectre bushings reduced the hop for me by about 35-50%

    I just got done installing an eps cam, headers, ported heads, mm, transmission mount and revshift rear cradle and trailing arm bushings. So far my wheel hop is 98% gone. I have not dropped the clutch yet but have taking off from a stop and just got wheel spin. This was not the case before. I had terrible wheel hop. I will do some clutch dumps later in the week and report back. If things stay they way they are I say the axles are not needed to get rid of the hop.

    I have the Delrin cradle bushings and stock axles. I still have some wheel hop but only with very aggressive acceleration - so I would say in my case, cured more than half of the annoying wheel hop. I still can't launch the V so forget about a clutch dump.

    There are a lot of combinations to mitigate or even completely eliminate the wheel hop. The delrin or poly cradle bushings is a good start. I skipped all the axle stuff and opted for the CS 8.8 (which I plan to install once I get a full weekend to myself). My decision going that route was because it cures the wheel hop, eliminates the parade clunk, and capable of handling a clutch dump with ease - and adding more power later.
