Wheel Hop

I think when I pull my 1-2nd gear scratch I'm getting tons of wheel hop. I know I get it when I burnt out too soft sometimes too. Whats the best way to get rid of this. I have a 3.4 so its really easy to slip them when pulling out of first and dropping the clutch a little too hard.
Thanx in advance

Boxed LCA's and LCA Relocation Brackets. Those are enough to solve major wheel hop on v8's. If that doesnt do it, maybe you need to look into some better rear shocks, or some new rear springs.
