brake floaters were popular a long time ago and now seem to be making a comeback, harris and bms both have cars running floaters with a link to the frame. Anyone running these floaters? do they seem to help and where? and any advantage versus the brackets that are attached to the birdcage?

I run one on the left side only. I run a 94 there where alot of people run 8/4's to hold the car up. I use the brake floater to do that. it makes it easy to change to a 93 or 95 shock.

I run one on the right side only, this is too help tune the entry. The left side ones can help to keep the car loaded, but all its really doing is binding hte car up in the air. Mine on the rr, is to tune my entry, it is almost level(like 5 deg up). More uphill to tighten, less to loosen.
