Rear Leaf Springs ...."Clamping Them?"


I was watching one of the car shows yesterday and they took a Mopar (Duster?) to the track and time raced it. Then they put some clamps on the rear leaf springs.

It sure looked good and it got me to thinking. I mean, they were just small clamps but they stoped the leaf springs from coiling up a bit I guess.

Anyone heard of this? I am assuming that they would stiffen the rear leafs and stop them from twisting on acceleration.

Any thoughts or experience with clamping the rear leaf springs?
I have a '66 Mustang.

Thanks, Greg.
