Retain vice cones. Less noise/drama.
Otherwise, I think equipe's are nice, RTE...eventually TF if need be.

I'm going to retain after much debate. I have some leftover 2" wide 1/4" plate if you want to pay shipping I'll give it to you. I'll cut to length but you'll have to drill them

RTE cones fail EVERY time with long enough shocks. Inverse(bottom mounted) short cones will be your best bet.

I'm assuming retain vice cones are a brand. Appreciate any leads as to where to find out more on them. I've seen RN and TF, just want to compare before choosing.

Appreciate offer on steel, looking for off the shelf at this point.

retain versus cones means the spring is retained top and bottom and stretches like a slinky as opposed to dropping out of the upper spring cup. It's not a brand, instead its a totally different design/concept.

Gotcha, so tops are secured similar to bottoms. Quite a bit of weight with axle and all, heck of a retainer clip.

Given how lame the stock lower retainers are- not really. As Zack offered a piece of 2x1/4 bar stock and some grade 8 bolts will do it for cheap.

I personally like the bars that bolt the springs in place, when the axle is articulated that much to where the spring falls out their is no weight on that wheel rendering it useless.

just my 2 cents

I wasn't putting the iron offer together with retaining clips to hold in place. Got it now, have plenty of iron and will go that route.
Thanks

Years ago RTE(and others) made the cones on top.
Now, the cones are typically made for the bottom(on the axle).

I would do neither; retain.
EE used to sell the real nice spring retainers; I cant find them on their site anymore.

X20 on the retain... Limits articulation a bit but makes up for it by limiting the "holy shit its going to roll" factor.

I retain at the bottom, and have some custom "cones" that come down from the top perch. Seems to work for me, under definitely the most extreme circumstances.

Put 4" 1/4 plate on top with 2" 1/4 strap below then grade 8. See how they work. Didn't see need to secure top plate by welding it on. As always, open for thoughts if should be different.

IIRC Billy's rig has inverted short dislocation cones on the bottom and the springs are only retained on the top. Seemed to have worked well for him
