think about it if you sinch both the front and rear winches down on a jeep and take out the spring factor you basically have tank.
I got that but are you going to drive around with winches compressing your suspension all day? And if driven like that it will still pivot on the plane the cable is on (as in side to side) right? Dont most people use them for climbs? I see that in an airshock it would increase the rate but not allowing it to unload and lose traction is a reason too no? I quess I dont get why you would build a suspension with x amount of travel and than pull it down with a winch to fix the handling (climbs aside). It would seem a sway bar would be easier/better. Anyway, sorry for cluttering up a nice build thread.
