SL Limit Straps makin noise!

My superlift limit straps have slack in them at ride height, and as i drive on the highway, they flap in the wind and rattle against the wear plates,and the noise is annoying as hell..
Any solutions?

If it is the sway bar end links I would just make some new ones. Or, you could get some from 08XLT4x4.

I haven't seen the SL Straps yet (mine aren't here yet) so I can't tell you what they look like but is it possible to add a ty-wrap to the part that is making the noise allowing the strap to flap without the metal parts moving around ?

Just thinking out loud, again !
