This is too long a name, but at least not derogatory! David R. Ingham (talk) 02:15, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

center pivot[edit]

Perhaps someone who knows more about modified American cars can explain if there really were such suspensions with zero roll resistance at the front. It would explain the therm "suicide axle", because all roll torque would be taken at the rear, tending to extreme oversteer. David R. Ingham (talk) 03:24, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Is this article necessary?[edit]

To me it looks like an article about a specific type of suspension that isn't terribly notable. --Therealelizacat (talk) 15:48, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Few articles are "necessary", nor are some "less notable". If it meets WP:N, it is notable. After all, we have articles on two US footballers that basically state, "He is notable for never having done anything notable in his career".
The subject is the Model T, and that's a massive number of cars, at an important transitional point in the history of the car. There is scope for this article's coverage, whether in one article here or as part of a larger scope on transverse front leaf spring suspension. But if you're planning to make such a change, at least achieve a change that makes it better. Corvette leaf spring is an example of what happens when someone says "This article is too small, it must be fixed!" but then fails to make it any better.
