Do you use suspension limiting straps and if so, what type do you use? I know some people use chains. Could anyone explain how the straps help? Thanks
Limiters are a good idea and a bad design. Good idea to stop front end travel. Bad design because the stiff hit when they tighten is enough shock the car into wheel spin. I personally don't use limiters and I prefer to use other chassis adjustments to keep the front end down.
Martin makes a nice kit,just got mine a couple weeks ago havent had time to put them on yetI sell chain type limiters I make. They are adjustable by just removing a pin and changing holes. They are 1/4" adjustment (most others are 1/2"). I get $100 for a kit. PM me if interested and I can email pictures.
Can you post up a pic of your limiter set up for the 69 mustang?I have home made suspension limiters on my car. With them, it simply slows the rise on the front of the car as it stands up making it controllable. Without the limiters, the car will wheelstand so fast it will literally jam the wheelie bars into the ground so hard it will rebound, shoving the front end back down unloading the suspension. Been there, done that, didnt like it one bit. And my car isnt terribly fast. It was running right around 10 flat at that time with a 3 speed trans; '69 mustang, back halved, ladder bar rear, stock type front suspension.
I have seen several folks using the straps, but I dont have any experience with them.
