I know this has been talked about before but lets bring it up again.I junked the 90/10 on our car Sat.I had the car jacked way out of shape.I dont have another one to put back on.Is it ok to run a long pull bar without one?I only use the pull bar for traction.I have a 6th coil for bracking.The other thing i am thinking about is putting a 73 shock on the lift arm instead of the 90/10.

I run a short pull bar Afco progressive. I think total length is around 21" or so. I broke my 90-10 at the begining of the year. I didn't have a spare so I put one of my front shocks on it. a 76-2 split valve, 6 comp. 2 rebound. It seemed to work just as good as the 90-10. Then after a few races I just took it off and now I don't run a damper shock, it helped my car a bunch but I also think that it was topping out under accel. I haven't had any problems running without it, but like I said I run a short pull-bar, I don't know what difference it makes with a long bar. Maybe someone else can help you with that.

I know someone who tried that...he kept snapping pullbars.

i ran mine on tues night without the 90/10 and it worked great. i dont use swaged tubes on my pullbar , i use threaded tubes that i make and it really woked out great, i couldnt tell the difference and the car seemed to like it too. silly car!

I have yet to break a pull-bar, I do use the swedge tubes but its only like 5 or 6 inches long. My car also carries the LF pretty high so its got some pressure on it. I heard that with the Afco 2-way bar you have to use a 90-10 or it will break! My bar is the Afco progressive bar. NOT the 2-way.
