what a local racer has done is use the mono leaf coil setup and put some half leaves clamped on the front of the mono's to help control wrap up and use a pullbar or lift bar for traction control. he also used to use just one brake floater on the right side.
hope this helps

we run multi leaf on left side, and mono leaf with coilover spring on right side with right side brake floater only. These chassis work GREAT.

Buzzard Chassis in Indiana sells and races multi leaf cars that are almost always up front. There slogan is pretty funny: Buzzard, Come fly with us !

Anyway there base chassis is a multi leaf including there house car, but they also have have some stack leaf combonations. I dont have contact info for them but they cannot be to hard to find just last week at Gas City they had at least 6 mods in the field, if you want to run leafs I would give them a buzz.
