Help with suspension build for Vargas 2+

I'm worried about blowing half shafts. From what I understand wheel hop causes the most problems. I want to set up the chassis and suspension to minimize wheel hop, body roll, but not have a harsh ride. I was looking at the Bilstein b12pro for suspension upgrade. I probably need bushings, mounts, etc. I have 200,000 miles and it is a vert. Please tell me which bushings, mounts, etc as well as suspension parts you would use to get the desired effect.
Thanks!

If it were me, I would first get an LSD so you can put the power down and the the Defiv Lockdown kit so you can help eliminate wheel hop on hard launches.

I wouldn't worry about upgrading half shafts unless you actually destroy one, which you shouldn't unless you start getting wheel hop.

Perfect. I'm also looking at replacing bushings too. Do you think engine or transmission mounts will make a difference?
