Default Limiting straps yay or nay?

Got a free set of straps and brackets from Jackie Polk from valair clutches at scheid. I've heard good and bad things about them. What do you guys think?

I'll be installing a set myself as soon as I get my Viking coil overs back . I have pulled the shafts out of shock bodies twice . I drive it on the street occasionally, not sure if it's happening going over pot holes or from launching it . I had them adjusted kinda loose I thought on compression and rebound . Long story short I'll install mine to keep my shocks from topping out again if in fact that's what the problem was plus hopefully it will help with keeping the front end down on launches .

I've heard they when they hit it wants to pull the front tires off the ground. But a shock bottoming out would do the same.

I don't see a need for limiting straps. if your suspension is properly set up you wont have any problems.

I think rob ran them and immediately took them off after his truck wouldn't launch straight.

I'll definitely do a test hit. I just got them free so I had to ask. slicks are gonna make my front pop up pretty hard I would imagine.

I run limiting straps on my race car. I use them to control wheelies. I don't see the point to run them on a diesel 4x4

I'm gonna try them, some people said to run the non slacked so the front doesn't raise at all. Getting alot of mixed opinions on what to do lol. "They" say 4x4 you don't want the front to lift.

I'll be watching this . I'm wondering if you have them tight at ride height , will the lack of weight transfer cause traction issues in the rear . When will you have yours done to test ?

When this fuel cell is hooked up I'll throw them on and do a hit. From what I read since it isn't 2wd you don't need that snappy weight transfer to the rear since all 4 are spinning. My front didn't raise horribly on the street tires but with the slicks it might. And this thing is probably gonna snap hard on The slicks.
