Maier Racing just updated their website. It was long overdue and finally have pictures of their suspension components including:

Rear Leaf Springs Notice the extra half-leaf in place of using under-ride traction bars.

Subframe Connectors Notice the extra tabs that tie in the under carriage.

Wow those leaf springs look weird, like they're missing one side of the bottom leafs. Is that good ? Doesn't seem they would be as good as my 5 leafs - :shrug:
Actually, this is an old, proven idea that works very well. Mopar super stockers used it very effectively in late '60's and early '70's drag racing. The idea is to keep the spring rate supple enough to allow the suspension to work, while the extra half leaf in front keeps the spring from "wrapping up" under power. '67 Shelby's used an extra bump stop placed at the front half of the spring to the same thing.
