Sway-a-Way’s Brian Bell showed us what can happen if you pound your rig too hard for too long without limit straps. After the snap ring groove gave out, the shock began to separate as the truck was aired out in the Glamis dunes. When the truck came down out of orbit, the two halves of the separating shock slammed back together and created the mangled metal you see here. We don’t know whose truck these shocks were bolted to. What we do know is that this is what we’re trying to avoid.
