I'm at work right now so I just had to use paint program, but here is a very rough sketch of my idea. if you put floaters on the springs so it would allow the rear end to rotate backwards under acceleration, and then weld a 3rd link bar right on top of the pumpkin going backwards to the frame. as the rear end rotates backward, wouldn't the 3rd link force the rear end downward rather than letting it roll? just an idea I was playing with. let me know if you think it would work.
