Whatcha. Is there a simple place to affix axle droop limiting straps? I was thinking secured on top of chassis and then looped under radius arms?

I have no idea on a Jimny, but on a Series Land Rover they attached to the side of the chassis (custom mount point) and loop under the axle tube.
I don't have them on my Series, the shock limits the movement and so far its not damaged the shock in an way.

With my factory springs in it's not a problem as like you say the dampers limit droop while the spring is still under pressure. With my track springs there is a definite possibility of the spring unseating as I don't need to compress them to fit them and having a spring fall off in a corner would suck.

You could buy a clamp that holds the spring to the axle
Rockwatt. Jimnybits both sell them
Rockwatt's is the better design
Ask Dave Jones aka Zook bob he was selling Rockwatt's version

They could work though they won't limit droop. Cheers.

why would you used limit straps? They're generally only used together with serviceable shocks.

But I did this with the Fox shocks.

Why? Because I don't want to have a spring fall off while giving it some death on a circuit. 2 clamps would work but as I am going to be swapping between two sets in a pit area quick and simple is the key and bolts through the spring seats will be fiddly compared to straps and pins with clips.

If you want quick and easy, A couple of large (10mil ) cable ties top and bottom. Around the spring coil and through the spring seat. Proper ones ( not pound shop rubbish) will keep them there.
Just cut them off when you change springs and replace.

It's been fettled just a tad.

What kind of racing is it you do, since it requires you to swap springs?

I use this from LowRange Offroad. It's super easy to use and setup.

Hadn't thought about zipties, good idea that man.

I haven't started formal racing yet due to still using the car for work and everything else but with the new much harder springs it's way way too firm for my spine on our pathetically surfaced roads never mind my farm tracks but conversely the road springs are too soft for circuit use. What I am finding though is that the trailmaster dampers do an amazing job of controlling both sets of springs, very impressed.
