Will,  I run longer shocks on the rear of the 130, as unloaded its at the end of the standard length travel. (its that Sprung!).  My springs dislocate competely by accident under only,  what I would call slightly taxing scenarios..  (although once they were dislocated the scenarios were a little more hairy (we thought 'what the hell') and I did kind of end up breaking the Anti-roll bar in two  :D )

I do agree with you that the un loaded wheel wont be doing alot.. but if you're in that scenario, then even a 'little' is going to help some.  There wasn't any gloop as it happens, just twisties.

I've drawn up mk1 of the Relocators and they're at the laser cutters now.

A 'hanging wheel' may little have no downward force but it takes longer to get to that point and whilst it is still touching the ground it has the weight of the wheel/axle/doobreyfirkins

The old touch of brake and a dab of throttle works well (especially on those vehicles fitted with an LSD, Will) but in reality too much throttle or too much brake means broken drive train components

Dave if you have the same set up as me does it dislocate, as technically the hook catches the spring ??? technicality??

Good point - the hook stops the full wieght of the axle hanging off the bushes
