    Even if you're using the springs as an axle locating device, if they're triangulated with the other control arms you can probably get away with it, but why chance it, just run a panhard rod. Lots of info out there on setting one up and yes you can start your research with past HAMB threads.

    It's not necessary, but would take a lot of potential slop out of the front end. I'm not sure what twofosho was refering to when he asked why take a chance. There isn't a particular safety or function issue. The side loading will be no more than any leaf spring rear in a hard corner. Study Posie's Thunder Road if you want to see an ideal arrangement.
