Suspension Strap Material was created by vicfreg
I am trying to locate a source for the front and rear suspension "strap" material for a 1928 Auburn 8-90 Sedan Convertible. The ones on the car right now are starting to fray. They are about 1-1/4" wide.

Maybe if you strike out try talking to a fabric sling manufacture company.We used all kinds of special fiber slings to lift many different power plant items. Some of these pieces weight was over 50,000 lbs. Every sling had a weight limit made into it and placed on the label.

I found a source for the suspension straps, aka "Snubbers". It is Andy's Garage in Delaware, owned and operated by Andy Wise, an AACA award winning restorer, and Oakland Owner/Restorer and Oakland Club Technical Advisor.
He has the straps in the proper width for our Auburn (1-1/4") and also has the rivets. He makes these straps out of Kevlar, so they are extremely durable. I am putting his contact information below. Vic Fregonese

I have used Kevlar slings lifting huge pieces of machinery. Great stuff. Tough as the soles on Daddy's shoes..
