    I use Velcro stamps, works really well and can be removed and reused.

    You want whatever you use to prevent over extension of your suspension. If you are trying to use velcro or zip ties...just put it on and tighten them to stop a tad before full extension. I personally would just do it the right way for the couple bucks it costs to save headache and hassle down the road.

    Yeah they would probably work. Just gotta figure out how to attach it to the rocker. They will stretch for sure so just keep an eye on 'em.

    I have 85mm...as they will stretch a lil. 90mm will work as well too. They may just stretch a tad to long and add not prevent the limiting you want.

    take into account that the limiting straps will stretch slightly
    my 90 mm have become around 95 and no longer limit
    now I have mounted the 80mm

    Exactly.

    I actually bought 85mm limiting straps, but before they arrived, used Velcro strapping I had lying around. Simply wrapped the Velcro under and over the rockers.

    The hack has proven to work so good, Iíve yet to bother installing the actual limiting straps. The velcro I used was purchased at HomeDepot and is about half an inch wide. No damage to the rockers whatsoever so far.
