    i have heard this question ask before and i came up with an idea. i have a lot of shocks off of atv,s laying around my shop and these shocks are coil overs basically a shock and a spring together. i know i can fab up a mount and maybe put one on each end on the out side of my 4 springs. any one see any problems that this might cause or if it is even worth it? i have pic's but can't figure out how to attach

    i think hes trying to make it so when it trips it doesnt snap back so hard & fast.

    It would be hard to make it so that it makes a difference there is so little movement in a trip edge. The boss plows have full trip. Also the shock would hinder how fast it folds over, which would not be good. Sorry, but I think you would be wasting your time.

    Does it really matter if the edge snaps back? It's not hurting anything.
