    I tie my roadster down so it is not working the shocks the whole time I am towing it.

    I always strap my cars down to the frame on the front and around the rear end in the back. Don't know if that's the way it's suppose to be done but I've been doing it like that for years.
    I use hooks on the front or holes in the frame that will work with my straps and axle straps on the rear.

    you need atleast 3 anchor spots...2 at the front end on each side and atleast 1 around the axle but i use 2 also in the back.....tie it to the chassis so it doesnt work the shocks and you want the straps pullin away from each other....

    Always put automatic cars in neutral so's it doesnt bounce on the PARK pahl.
