that is perefect run it eye to eye on the shock or evan better upper eye on shock to lower link pin. you can alos go to the upper link pin if you like.

May I ask, why are you after the straps? you having problems with your shocks or binding etc. or your tie rods hitting the pan...?

if you have a link pin the only thing you have to worry about is the shock. If your car is a 66, I think you have a link pin, so nothing to worry about

Have you thought about using the hook and pins like used on class 9 and some class 5s ? If anyone out there is willing to explain how you build and set these up I'd sure appreciate it. I need to set our buggy up with them.
