    RTI'd the rig, need a single center limit strap in the rear. At my "max" flex, the center link point drops 5" from ride height, and a 30" strap looped over the shock mount tube and bolted to a tab on the rear housing will allow things to work perfect....

    however, should I plan to keep the strap right and force it to stretch? IE: run a 28" total length and not a 30", and force it to pull down for that last 1"?

    decisions decisions...need to order these SOON so they are in hand by this coming weekend (26th)

    Woody,

    I'd get the Redart limiting straps from PIG (polyperformance). That is what I have and he says they don't stretch.

    Bring your "Duck gear" it's gonna be wet. Wife bailed, which works out good cause the testing, talking, would get boring for her. I'm thinking late morning for me, so sleep in!
