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
:uh: u must have missed my first post......POINTLESS....... when u hop and the coil compresses it gets pushed away from the upper pocket.....welding a pipe will do nothing.....try 2 sleeve the cylinderOriginally posted by backbumper79@Dec 1 2008, 07:36 PM~12306517
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 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)
