Question suspension on concrete

What suspension setup is everyone running on mildly rough concrete? It seems that every thing I try produces tons of rearwheelhop durring tight turns.

then go for softer rear so that it would absorb the bumps
Friends (Joey's Bag)
Rachel: Exactly! Unisex!
Joey: Maybe you need sex. I had sex a couple days ago.
Rachel: No! No Joey! U-N-I-sex.
Joey: Well, I ain't gonna say no to that.

I did some experimenting on similar surface with mine when I got the suspension upgrade and this is what I noticed...

With stock tires, depending on which way I am turning (using the tight steering upgrade) it hops on any springs i use regardless of soft or hard when I turn one way (the way that is tightest, i think to the left?). And when i turn to the right, it does not skitter unless i am using the hard springs.

I thought about trying to stack some small slices of surgical tubing as "springs" instead to reduce skitter in tight corners. Something that could absorb the impact but also keeps the car from being too mushy.

going to look at hardware store for alternativs when there next.
