Your rear is still locked right?

That's a tough question ,on one hand it may load the left rear tire more but on the other hand it may unload it.
I run a four bar with floating brakes so i would like to know as well.
I think it depends if the caliper is on the front or rear and where the coil is relative to the axle.
Hope someone knows more on this.

while you guys are on this subject.....we aren't required to run a spool. is there an advantage to running a detroit locker or some other type of ratcheting spool? what would the change from a spool to a locker do to the handling?

3/8 medium banked, long straights, tight corners, usually tacky.

i'll start a different thread.

I have also ran a 4 bar for a long time with both brakes on the housing. I think that the brake floater on the right will smooth the car up on entry.
How will the caliper location effect this arrangement?
I run the right rear spring in front.
