Hi Mike,

That reminds me of why Ford's SVO engineers started using "horizontal dampers" (horizontally-mounted shocks in the quadra-shock rear suspension system) on the Mustang SVO, which Ford started using on the Mustang GT in circa 1986. In theory, they are supposed to damp the oscillations (vibrations) of the rear axle. They also tighten up the rear suspension and improve handling in curves.
