While I was putting limit straps on my front shock and after having to clean them up, I thought I'd see if I could do something to keep them clean, I had some pallet wrap handy, sooo, I wrapped the shock and spring with pallet wrap, so far, no problems with it.

Just another idea from someone with too much time, too little money, and nuttin better to do.

Nice idea... redneck shock sock... is your limiting strap on shock itself?

I always thought that limiting strap was supposed to go on frame above and below the shock point?

yes, the bolts for the shock are long enough that I can put the eye of the strap at the end and have the strap clear the spring and also act as a shield against flying objects headed for the shaft.

Pretty sure that if dirt or water get in, it can drain out the bottom, but yes, I'll be keeping an eye on everything, especially being as it's an experiment. Would like to find a shock boot that had ends big enough to just tie rap to the top and bottom, but till then, I'll see what happens.

Had a problem with out 2008 Joyner T2 dropping the rear axle off the differential. Put a limit strap on each side of the rear shocks using longer bolts and the existing shock mounts. Have ran this way for the last six months and the axle problem seems to be solved. At first we used normal bolts, but found that they were bending. Went to high strength bolts and that problem was solved too.
