i have a 62 impala. What are the advantages of chains? Post some pics of rear ends chained
true, you really dont need them unless you got a bad ass hopper. no chipin.Originally posted by big pimpin@Sep 21 2005, 12:42 AM~3855182
With a 62 impala you should not need chains to help 3 wheel at all! Are you trying to hop big inches or something? Otherwise you really don't need them.

It's funny because I've never even heard the chains in the back at all on my car.... :dunno:
chain can be used so you can do a standing 3 without all the extra weight and chains can be used to keep the springs in the front if a ball joint breaks..Originally posted by big pimpin@Sep 21 2005, 01:20 PM~3857026
Jokerman brings up a good point. Some people need the chains to keep them from breaking trailing arms and such. Got to know when to stop hitting the switch up!
I was gonna chain the rear end..... The chains would make it so it raises evenly each side when hopping. It would also help by chaining off the cylinders to a specific hieght so you could compress the rear springs to stiffen the rear end up for hopping (less bounce)
But I never did...cause I didn't want no noisy rattling chains!
Thanks Lavish i will take your word for it and leave it alone

What I did was take some bicycle inner tube and pull the chain through the the tube. You can then either heat the rubber, or if its already tight enough leave it just like that.
Waola~ no road noise. :biggrin:
