I think he means using a large tube and custom making a upper spring pocket/perch

correct! The pocket is custom and is bigger than stock. There is a lot of room for the spring to move around in there and i was wondering if a pipe would work good to keep it all in place? thats all

im sayin when the car is hoppin there is a chance the spring can move around a little, put pressure on the cylinder and possibly bend it. If there was a pipe a little bigger than the spring welded to the top of the pocket that came down a couple of inches that would prevent the spring from moving and the cylinder bending. I bent 2 cylinders with 2 pumps 6 batteries hittin 30's. Im just trying to prevent problems ahead of time.

I think your idea is good... Just keep in mind.. You want to use the coil to its fullest potential....
Full suspension travel and movement is important....

I think your wrong... Just my opinion.. Also he never said if he was running a coil over or coil under....

I built a few crazy spring pockets before... no pics though..

Here is a pic i found on here... (sorry forgot who posted it)

i never said it couldn't be done...

You can put clear taillights on a lamborghini if you want..its up to you

Thats the best part of lowriding... Its all about you and your unique style
( like you didnt know :biggrin: )

But it really doesnt look like that his car is that low in the front (its lower then stock)
Its not like his car is laying frame all around (any more pic?) and can hop
