School me on dislocation cones ...

And other options. I am putting the 3" lift on the 110 and was wondering if I should hold the top of the spring in place (witch I favor) or be putting in cones.

Benefits ???

Suggestions ???


Thanks

Pat

So ...

Basically you are saying, put a bracket to hold the top of the spring in place like the ones in the bottom of the rear springs.

I've had dislocation cones and EE spring retainers and I like the spring retainers much better. The noise from the cones re-seating is annoying and disconcerting. I don't think there is a difference in articulation but I never measured the two different approaches.

Clark

even if there was a difference in articulation... besides the show aspect of cones, the theory is the wheel stays on the ground, so there should be better traction, right? well is there going to be enough weight on the wheel to keep traction anyways?

Salut Pat - ca va?

Cones give the "sexy" flex look...I was running them and, like everything, they have the good and bad...

I went retianed (metal plate on top and bottom) and it made my truck much more stable.

Would definitely recommend going retained

Pat, get a set of the EE spring retainers. if you want, you can get a second pair of rear retainers and move your front shocks outside of the towers and have all 4 springs retained. this however, will cost more because of the now external front shocks.

4 EE Spring retainers
Rover Hybrids - front external shock towers (shane is the man)

The EE's spring retainers won't work on the rear springs of a 110 since the springs are larger in diameter than the front (where the EE retainers will work if you go to external shocks).

I have spring retainers that I can send to you. I don't know if they will fit though. They came off my 1990 D90

Might want to talk to Steve at Rovertym about custom making rear retainers. I have a set of his retainers just need to install them.

As for retainers I have seen what others have done and I think I will take the chalenge to make them myself. Get the welder going and hopla !

Buck, I thank you for your generosity but I think the 110 rear springs are a little larger than the 90 ones. I will try to come up with a clever design and will post pics.

Thanks everybody for pitching in !

Pat
