And by clearance issues I meant that it will be up against the coilover and if you mounted it to the bracket bolts then when it gets tight it basically has to go around the coils like so ( instead of |
Ahh ok, thanks for clearing that up.

I used the adjustable clevis on the bottom of the strap to set where the straps stop the suspension droop. It stops the suspension roughly 1" from full droop.

My straps are 12" Beard straps. I'd probably go with a 10" strap with no lift kit.



this is how im going to do mine

I finally received them, and the welds looked pretty nice this time. All it took was one e-mail. I'm going to put them on tomorrow. I will get some pics.

You talking about how to mount the limit straps? If so, I'll get some pics tomorrow of how I did it. My set-up is real similar to the pics above.
