I've seen it done on a 6x6 Series IIB FC at billing, had the two close
ends of the leaves on a each end of short bit (12") of box which was
pivoted in the centre. Havn't seen it in action, but information i
have from researching shows that such a link defenitly improves ride
quality, as well as elimitating braking difficulties.
