View Full Version : Lift strut attach reinforcements

11-28-2005, 01:37 PM
I noticed the Wipaire and other 2000lb GW mods put a reinforcment insert on the lift strut fittings. The Wipaire one looks like a aluminum casting or block.

My D&E wings are supposedly good for 2000lb but I would like to add some beefup to my lift strut fittings. I am thinking about a 7075T6 insert on one side of the front and rear fittings. Mainly choosing the 7075 for light weight and strength. Anyone have any comments? What have other folks done? Thanks in advance.

Does Atlee double both sides of the fitting or just one? Front and rear?
