Cheaper arms will cause wheel hop from what I have seen. Are they the summit ones in your sig? If so I almost guarantee that is why you have wheel hop. That is one place that I am not gona skimp on when it comes to replacing mine.

Try replacing the quads, or if you didnt during the swap, like said before, replace the upper bushings on top of the diff
