A Mono Leaf is used as a suspension link, It should not be loaded when the chassis is sitting at ride height. Also youshouldn.t float a mono. The only way it can control the rear correctly is if is bolted tight to the rearend.

Ego,

are you saying the mono should not have any preload on it at all when at ride height? so if the spring has a 5" arc at free state it will still have it installed. What is the height of the rear eye to ground for both a mono and multi?
