You guys with first and second gen Novas,how did you limit the travel on your front suspensions?(factory front ends of course)
Are you talking about the spring cover?If so,is that strong enough? My car already pulls the tires about a foot/foot 1/2,with the suspension stretched out.i used a 1/4 in chain , went from the outside of the spring tower toward the rear of it , to the lower suspension arm , i left a few extra links to adjust for travel , drilled a couple 3/8's holes and used heavy duty bolts and washers.
i tied mine down at 1.5 inches. Everything gets better,,, how it drives , reaction times ,,
I like that idea alot.I use the stainless steel braided cable and clamps, just go around the upper control arm to an eye bolt secured to the spring cover. Mine has been like that for years, no problems at all. Can't twist up or hang on anything like a chain might.
SO if you don't have spring covers and still want to do this, would you just tie it off to the inner panel?
Which did you use (chain or cable) and how do you like it?
