because they suck. get decent springs and a good shackle angle and be done with it. then u will have a suspension that is predictable and works well.

what is a missing link shackle?
where there are actually two shackles and one sits roughtly parralell to the ground and the other is at a normal angle. then when  the axle droops the one that is parralel and it "opens up" to allow for more flex. i will try and find a link to some pictures of them used on samurais if you want.
