I do not think the bending of the spring would create enough of a difference in length to make much difference..Now when you are running on a dirt track things do tend to get bouncy so it might be hard to tell..WE do live with some deflection in the conventional spring layout so I do not believe it woudl be a great issue..If the springs are mounted directly to the axle with just a pivot point there may be enough resistance to side to side movement to be OK..We live with conventional springs with no panhard all the time..

Nice clean looking setup though..only way I know to prove it out is build it and try..Make your sacrifice to the Hot Rod gods..
