    Working on upgrading my little old radio trailer....can you help a brother out and hook me up with some stock shocks and struts to complete this project?....I will buy them forthe right price or will give up some ad space on finished project if you want to sponsor the ballerness!....
    Finished project includes scrapping seat for an ice chest, habbachi grill mounted off the back, mud flaps, and holsters for carrying chairs, possibly some type of awning or umbrella for shade....boo ya....

    I used to pull it behind my bicycle...but this thing is going to weigh a ton when finished....most likley will be hand pulled like a wagon or hooked up to my moped for things like spectating at parades....posting up at the beach....etc..

    My only thought is that shocks aren't designed to support weight at an angle like that. Struts are really only designed to handle linear force. I wouldn't put a ton of weight on it

    Definition of a flawless baller:

    When you take a $300 boat like this:
    [​IMG]
    Then you save your duckets, source parts on craigslist, hone your skillset, build a system like this:
    [​IMG]
    You end up with 8 tower speakers, a custom built powder coated tower, some subs and a volume knob that can wake the dead, then you are a baller, cruising the lake with a $300 boat rocking a $5k sound system that you really only spent $1500 building.....however your not a FLAWLESS BALLER untill you enter a christmas boat parade and bump jingle bells as your motor blows up
