It does remove some of the mystery, though I will have to do some more scribbling to get it all straight in my head. I appreciate you taking the time to change a diagram into words and simplifying for clarity. Sorry about interrupting the sequence. It's just that I had posted a rather naive explanation of anti-dive in another thread just about a day before, hoping some suspension engineer would come along and correct it.
Please, continue with the anti-squat description! Understanding how these forces interact definitely helps understand the how's and why's of the parts and their designs.
(BTW, when I saw the title of the thread, I almost passed it by. Then I saw the author and knew it wasn't about 'Get your FREE! Body Diagrams here -- just $19.95 shipping!'
