Mike Minnet (sp?)out of the Dallas area had quarter epileptics on all four corners of his T bucket in the early 70's and it seemed to work great and maybe better than some of the other suspensions available for similar rods at the time.

There might be an issue if you had long springs or a lot of difference in length between the spring and the upper bar. Most of the ones I have seen use a reasonably short spring that is also fairly flat without a lot of curve to it.
