I'm guessing lca's and some sub frame connectors would completely cure your problem.
I gonna have to say that it's more likely just the LCA's, I have subframe connectors(welded in) and still have horrible wheel hop.

Anyone have real proof of which type to go with between poly bushing or sherical. I know the spherical ones tend to be noisey on the street, but do the poly ones actually solve the wheel hop?

maximum motorsports and team z make quality suspension parts. A little pricey but when it comes to suspension its worth the extra dollar

get some lower control arms, you will have no wheel hop after the install.
Depends on which ones you get. I have the Maximum Motorsports LCAs with 3-piece urethane bushings on the chassis end and spherical bearings on the axle end. No wheelhop whatsoever and that's with the quad shocks removed as well.

I just did the Maxium Motorsports LCA's. I wld go for them they cost the extra penny but they are very well built! I haven't had a chance to get out and try them out yet since it won't stop raining here!
