Exclamation Cable Mod

My suspension sags under launching and I put down a 2.31 60foot. From what I understand all we have to do is drill a hole and run wire? What is involved and How does it work???

spring limiting? If you're sagging like that I'd go ahead and replace the struts with KYB-GR2s at a minimum. They sell spring blocks for the rear.

Suposedly there is a cable mod that can be done for $5 dollars and it works very well. Does anyone know how it works or can elaborate on this cheap mod??

I am curious what it is, doesn't make sense to me. I can't fathom what you could do on a FWD car with a cable, but on RWD you can limit the front suspension hang.

Index of /members/silver2kgtp/Suspension Kit


its a sticky on clubgp under suspension.
Id link it but i think the powers that be would erase it.

best suspension mod outside of traction bars and coilovers for the rear.
You wont want to drive on the street with it in place. Track only mod really.

We have some spring blockers if you are looking for something for the street, but it sounds like you may need springs and struts too if the sag is that bad.

Google found it on my Android phone, but Google on the computer and ClubGP's site didn't...

Cable Mod

I picked up a set of Spring Blockers for my 2000 Park Ave Ultra with F41, but my springs were too thick and there was no way to get them in, so I sold them to a friend with a 94 Park Ave (not Ultra) and they fit his fine.

Not the best idea for daily driving, but would work, but could damage the body or the tires.

I might go look at using the S10 Extreme bump stops, they might do a better job and be 100% streetable.
