This is why you use Limit Straps!! (Pics&Video!)

What A Joke
Let this be a lesson to all :)
This is the story of a guy called Keith. He never listened to us when we told him that he NEEDED limit straps, even more so because his beams are extended 5" each side. The only thing stopping the beams from dropping more is the shock shaft!

For Example, Look at how far it drops with a 14" shaft!





Heres a vid of it:

Even the airbag came out and there was only one way to get it off :)

Kids, make sure you use limit straps or bump stops that DO NOT let the shock shaft come all the way out!!

If the MPG files dont work right click on them and do Save File As.

I dont know why its not working by just clicking.

That sucks! What kind of damage was done and how much to fix. My computers video downloads are messed up so I could not see the video what exactly happened when he came down.

Well the shaft of the shock (King 2.5 14") broke right above the bottom cup. The tire went all the way up and bent the whole front clip up and tweked the hood up and broke the fiberglass on the left side. The only $$$ will be for a new shaft and a left fiberglass fender. He got really lucky he didnt roll it. He hit it as soon as we got there and I couldnt get the camera on soon enough thats why i only got the last few seconds of it.
