    Merged your thread with another on the subject. Look at the first post with pictures.

    Google searched:
    Replacing bungees site:shortwingpipers.org
    This helps keep all relative information in one thread so you don't have to search multiple threads to get all the information.

    I received a PM asking about my double 1080HD setup and if it has sagged at all. So far, it is holding tight. The airplane is apart right now awaiting engineering paperwork to fix my lift strut attach so it hasn’t flown as much as it usually would. But, I am very happy with the setup so far.

    I reviewed this thread and was wondering what changes are needed for a PA-22/20? Should I leave it on the tail wheel or raise the tail? Engine hoist at prop or engine mount preferable? I need to remove the left gear for some work on it.

    I leave it on the tail and use the engine mount to lift the front.

    Planning on installing two 1080 HD bungees on a 57 Tripacer with a 160, based on latest recommendations on this thread. Empty weight 1205 #. AC Spruce is out of stock.
    Chief has1080 HD made to rigid government specifications by Thomas Taylor & Sons.
    Univair has U31322-006 FAA-PMA.
    Negligible price difference. Is one preferred over the other?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    They should all be manufactured to the same specification so there is probably no discernable difference from various suppliers.
    They might all come from the same manufacturer and just be packaged/labeled differently for a particular seller.
    I just checked websites, "Pilot Shop" and "Spruce" have the same image in their ad; "Aircraft Specialty" and "Chief" both show the same product from Superior.
    I wouldn't worry about it.
