    Thats the point I'm making, the body and frame still move. If you fasten to the frame, when the car bounces, the strap can loosen SLIGHTLY. I can strap to the frame, and compress the suspension enough to see the body lower, if I bounce the body the strap will loosen.
    I strap directly over the front wheels, on the rear to the axle a-arms. The body is completely free to move.

    When I first got my trailer I reached out to Superformance (Hillbank) to see what they recommend? Superformance cars have a retrieval hook in the back but Hillbank said they transport their vehicles using the front and rear (IRS) lower axle a-arms as Rich mentions. So I've always done the same.

    Didn't want to cause an argument. I prefer strapping the tires and allowing the car's suspension to absorb the bumps.

    Hey Tony, does your truck have an electronic brake setup?
    I bought this unit and a specific wiring harness that plugs right into my vehicle. It works great and comes highly-rated.

    Thanks for the tip Mark. But my truck already has a setup.
