Seems a bit strange, to me. If weight's transferring from rear to front, I'd think that this would unweight the rear axle and cause the =rear= axle to slide before the front, but WTF do =I= know? [emoticon]

Braking front axle tries to wind up spring with axle twist. Rear of front spring is forced up which moves equalizer upwards. This also forces the rear spring down which loads more weight on the rear axle. Pretty much the same results as towing nose high.
