Limit straps..

Recommended Posts

Im after some limit straps for my suspension, as i dont want to run the risk of ripping the end of my coilover off and was wondering if there is anywhere that makes and sells them.

I was thinking of making them myself but cant really be bothered! I would need to get the ends sewn properly to the right length anyway. I was thinking ratchet strap type material would be the stuff, and not the little ratchet straps!

Any ideas?

I may be wrong, but I would have thought that if the coil-over is strong enough to support the weight of the vehicle in compression, it would hold the axle in tension?

The danger with check-straps is them getting caught on stuff you drive over?

I suspect someone like sling & tackle would make up something for you.

Im just thinking if the axle drops freely and quickly then it may put a fair shock load on it. I have just spent ages making some bits to hold the webbing, just need to find a company to send them to and have a length of strap sewn on them

You wont need them, coilovers are designed so that they can hold a significant load under tension, I dont use any with my fox airshox, after 2 years of abuse there fine.

Look at rock buggys in the states.

if the axle drops freely the rebound damping will take care of that.

What he said - they damp in both directions.
