Making a Maxi a rigid

Has anyone done it ?? Took there maxi and made it a rigid ?

I have been thinking of doing it. I have EBR's up front right now with some crappy rear shocks that are looking pretty ugly.

I was thinking of either doing the rigid bar in the back set-up.

Or buying some of the 300mm adj. spring set-up treats sells.

I just want it to sit alittle lower really.

I didnt know if the 280mm ones would be too low. I only weigh 150.

If you have thoughts & pics show them please :)

just look at a rigid maxi and try to replicate the factory set up.

go to the steel store and buy some steel.

Re: Making a Maxi a rigid

steel or any of that is not really a problem.

i work at a Tool and Die shop here in GR.

I just didnt know if others have done it on a maxi

or if they had photo's.

Re: Making a Maxi a rigid

I did it to my maxi just make sure you replace the bolts with grade 8.

Re: Making a Maxi a rigid

I can get you a couple of pieces of square tube from work like I used on mine. Should work out fine. Then you can lower it as much as you want and it will stay there. under a quarter in from rubbing the rear shock mount is good on the pinto...

Re: Making a Maxi a rigid

perhaps you could just add steel struts in place of the shocks. im not too sure how stable it would be, but if you used some thick steel, i think it would be fine.

Re: Making a Maxi a rigid

Anything can be done, it just depends on how much work you want to do, and how much money you want to spend. You could just replace the shocks with solid steel struts, but there would still be some looseness in it. To make it really rigid, you would have to weld everything. It could be as simple as welding the struts and front of the swing arm in place, or as complicated as fabricating a whole new rear frame section. Kinda depends on what you want.
