Johnathan and Nick came up with a neat redesign using only two shocks and a pair of hinges. The idea is to emulate what you see on a motorcycle or bicycle rear suspension where you have a combination of a pivot and a spring/shock that absorbs the loads. Nick even designed it so that it would be easily waterjettable with only some slight machining needed.

Notice the heavy duty hinges towards the front.
