Where do you attach the straps or what ever when loading a car on a trailer like a coupe, backwards?
With all of the possibilities of bending an axle, where is the best place to attach the hook or strap, not to cause damage to the rear end?
I use a nylon strap and wrap it around the top of the rear spring (where the spring pak goes into the frame) this puts the load on the frame and not the axle
I wrap a strap around the axle next to the pumpkin as it is a rolling load there is very little force applied, if no wheels and you are dragging it then whatever works, I have a chart that shows the force applied on rolling loads but don't know where I put it.
Wasn't there some discussion a few months ago saying that jacking a car at the pumpkin won't bend the axle housing and that it was just a myth?
I agree with Rick. Not a lot of force involved just rolling it.
I would be more concerned about the force on the front wishbone ball
Especially if a front wheel gets hung on the ramp
