Default 1995 Honda Civic LX Sedan takeoff issue

Hey everyone...finally have an issue I cant seem to figure out. These forums have always been a great reference spot.
Have a 1995 Civic LX Sedan 5 spd trans with 275k miles and going strong. However, my wheel hop issue has me a little puzzled.
During takeoff from say a light or stop sign I have some wheel hop on what I think is the passenger side. Happens when slightly turning left or straight. Never noticed it turning right. Tires are new. Changed loose lower ball joint on the passenger side as well. Tie rods are fine. No noise from drive shaft ever either. Struts are old but still stiff enough I think. Wheel bearing is in good shape as well. I guess I am leaning to replacing the drive shaft on that side but wanted to get some opinions first.
I have searched but most of what I am finding is higher speed turns on souped up civics. Mine is all stock and a daily driver.
Oh and motor mounts look good and are not weather cracked.

Check the bushes under the front suspension lower arms. May need replacement. Take her to a wheel alignment shop. These guys can usually diagnose issues with the suspension right away.

Anyone heard of jacking up the front and criving through the gears... for example take off for me. Would that show a worn cv joint if there is vibration or if its wobbly?
