i think in his case its just a feel good factor. the ride will definitely be very harsh under no load condition.

i meet this frenchman couple of years ago. he added this for the mod he made on the defender.

2 shock absorbers will help bottoming out . When it has something to do with rally ,then the vehicle will be on slopes and and some driveways might cause the gypsy to be temporarily off the ground and when the gypsy hits the ground the shocks will help the vehicle against bottoming . Another thing is with 2 shocks the load on the shocks as well as the suspension components is reduced due to stress and help in load sharing .In the city the damping would be much harder and it would result in uncomfortable rides .
