Whats cool is The hole already exists! They have a plastic less than 1/4 " snubber ,if you will, in place already. I may have to enlarge the hole for a real snubber however.
I think that if you were to put one on the second leaf closer to the main eye that it will be more effective.
Can't get to it, its wrapped
An addition to the third leaf will be very little to help in traction problems, but would help more toward wheel hop concerns.
If the thickness were increased by say an adjusting bolt,which is part of the energy sus. bump stop, or if the height were increased to say one inch, a higher pre load could be imposed on the first and second spring.
I'm going to do it and report differences, if any, to the board.
