It's not about the unseating, it's about physics.
Right now, your rear will droop out first and quicker, due to the bind up front, and the link design versus the radius design.
By retaining the springs, you are forcing the energy to be stored, then tranfered along the pivot axis of the weight distribution. This will force your front to compress/droop more, resulting in less body roll and more even weight distrobution for a more stable result.
It's not about loosing them in the buckets... ask christo.. he knows all about this on the short bus.
