hoppers and some dancers use to do it like that before... i have one 2 1/2 shorty like that in my backyard... LOL shit, I don't see why you'll get clowned... I would clown a fool with chains on his front scared about breaking a ball joint while hopping, that, I would clown at... other than that, shit weld it, its your car.
I understand that when high heat applied to coils weakens them but why is it bad, I've seen many cars by reputable people and shops do it. Is it better just to the let coils rest in the axle and hear the CLACK CLACK as the bounce around when your cars locked up

please tell me you DID NOT just ask this question... :twak: :twak:
what does the cylinders opening have to do with welding the coil to the cup???[/b][/quote]
Because of the question above, I'm not an expert like you.If I have a stack of coils that are 20" in heighth but I have Torpedos or Big Daddy's and fully open them the coils will rest on the axle and bounce around? Just a question dude I don't know this shit but you do

i think it would be ok to weld your cup to the springs especially in the rear for dancers cause i seen a couple of dancers springs fall out in the back all the damm time and it messes there dance and they dont make the 90 seconds and all they got is only there front hop not no pancake,side to side, or see-saw LATE
i would get tired of buying deep cups and springs all the damn time,
why waste 50-60 dollaz on cups you could've saved,or up to $150
dollaz on springs,when you just wanted to cut another turn off to lower it.i dont have money to waste like most of you.

when i first juiced my lincoln i did coil under in the rear and was trying to devise some ways to keep from throwing a spring if i 3 wheeled it...someone gave the idea of welding some metal pipe onto the cup going down into the spring...i never tried it out because not long after i installed it i was switching it to coilover and getting a 3rd pump :biggrin:
maybe this would be an option for you to try out and btw i dont think a weld would hold for very long
Im sure this has been covered before but my search isnt turning up anything.
I am doing a hidden setup in my 67. Going for a 70s style lifts setup using flipped 8" in the rear (nothing in the trunk). But how do you flip cylinders in the front? Is it a small coilover? is it strong enough to lift...
over the years layitlow has seen this question 1000x's. do skirts fit on a lifted impala....this could be a thread dedicated to skirt clearance issues. and make it easier on the backyard builder to find parts for his project. there are few options available.
1. narrow stock rear end
I have a regal -78 /g-body with telescopic pistons in the rear, I am afraid that I will damage the gearbox if I drive the car in locked up or three wheeling it when driving. (Even if I don’t drive crazy high in any way.)
Now to my question, is it enough to shorten the drive shaft...
