Not only that, but I think he's using the hockey pucks for STACKED lift blocks, which is dangerous anyway.

I've heard of hockey puck body lifts, but this is a new one

I want to see a pick of the setup

for a cheap lift you could make your own lift shackles

i'd be worried that he's on the same road as me, but honestly he's far enough away that those hockey pucks would spit out if he traveled this far!

Thats scarily popular with mk2 vw's. The track ***** has them for its front mount, and subframe mounts. No issues in a season of racing.

But I would never use them on suspension, something that moves and shakes...

don't get too offended, this is the internet after all, people will bounce off the handle.

what everyone is getting at is: those hockey pucks will crumble on you, it might not be today, it might not be tommorow, but it will happen. no-one want's to see you broken down because of it, or worse yet, in an accident!

please be safe! shackles or an add-a-leaf is the proper way.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.




Especially when you're putting someone elses well being at risk.

This thread needs less talk and more pics of hockey pucks as lift blocks. I don't believe you, post pics to prove it or STFU.

I can not believe this. I say maybe maybe 6 months before they crumble and fall off. And i think i am over estimating this by a long shot.
