just a heads up.. im sure you already know and have more experience than me.. just dont get the purpose of allowing your coil to unseat like that?

Silver how are you liking those Biltein resi's?? Ive only heard of one bad story of the shock shaft getting cut in half. everyone i know that has em loves them.
You don't need to necessarily have a strap on each corner. I have a center strap on my front end that keeps everything from unloading hard and focuses all my flex out at the ends of the axle. I have everything setup to where I never have a spring coming out.
