After a while it can. It depends on how crazy you get. I had to have my carb. rebuilt due to hopping, you can break motor/transmission mounts from hopping/bouncing. I don't know of it causing and internal damage but possibly after a while.

well, after hopping and hopping and hopping and hopping, your motor will mess up badly... hasn't happened to me... but on a few people who hop the hell out of their cars... it has happened...

nope... just make sure your engine has oil... but, to answer your question... no damage will be done by playing with your switches... hopping is another question.

if you're not gonna be clownin and hoppin the shit out of it, i wouldn't worry at all
i've had mine for 3 years and my engine runs like a charm
just watch the output shaft on your tranny.... if you drive locked up it overextends the driveshaft and can cause leaky seals in the tranny output shaft
not a big deal, but i thought i'd let ya know
peace

Mine's been lifted since the summer of '96 and haven't had any problems with engine other than replaced the motor and tranny mounts a few times. And now that I think about it, I've put my ride through hell and back and the engine still runs like a champ, then again I gotta give props to my good 'ol 403. ;)

I never drive with my front all the way locked and my ass all the way dumped for more than a few minutes. I don't like the idea of all the motor oil going to the back of the engine and not lubricating the front of the engine properly. I kow that you have an oil pump but you should level out the car once in awhile. You shouldn't have a problem though.

ahhhh the 403. thats what i have and ive went through motor mounts before, once the one broke and the powersteering pump hit the steering gearbox and bent the pully and pump shaft, other than that minor playing isnt gonna do much, sometimes it will mess up your carb floats. major hopping is another story
