Without knowing any better, this is always what I assumed the reasoning was, and I believe Keith when he says it. I have noticed, however, quite a few custom builders forgoing the coils for a cleaner look, and always wondered how wise that was. I suppose it's ok if there's at least some bend in the line and not just a straight shot, or maybe they are using solid body mounts...
