A CASE FOR LIMIT STRAPS

Recommended Posts

Hi Trooper troopers,

When making some temporary "limit straps" to keep the rear suspension from topping out, I ran into an "awe sh--".

This is the result of topping out and luckily for me I saw it before the rear shock mount went completely away. I'd suggest you jack up the rear end of your car to see if you have any cracks. Then as Lenny suggested install some limit straps.

This close, but not exactly on topic, but here's a cheap way to lube the swing arm pivot joints, Drill small hole, inject grease with a needle zerk fitting, then cover hole with tape to keep water and mud out.

The existing trailing arms can be modified to be more then strong enough even for the toughest conditions and biggest hits. There is a past thread that covers most of the fixes. http://www.utvboard.com/Rear-wheel-misalignment-i-t1034.html There are two things not mentioned in this thread, The ends of the swing arms must be reinforced where they change to the two sleeves that form their pivot point. Also for maximum torsion strength the lower shock mount should be mounted farther to the side closer to the wheel. I moved mine to the side and the torsion stress on the swing arm is now 2/3 of what it was. Thanks to Rocmoc for this good idea.
