I think that pistons have pretty limited use, considering they are the only block in the game allowing us to animate things linearly. Some settings like strength and extension distance would be really useful for things like hydraulics in cars, construction equipment, etc. And i think that strength would be especially handy because i always find myself trying to build a lowrider with hydraulics only to be saddened by the fact that when extended the pistons are to weak to hold the car up.

if you use use NoBounds to set a spring to a negative value, you can make pistons that go longer. values over around -50 will keep the piston from retracting.

this works with sliders and suspension as well, but they need to be pushed out a bit before they will go out.
I've also attached the bsg file below so that people can test it out.
