Actually I believe its probably more because the different upright angle
also causes actual loading at the hub to be less (longer lever arm) than in
its more upright position - (shock loading is also a function of angle vs
load) - as the upright deviates outward, less downward pressure is
available and some of the energy is transferred to the axle as lateral
loading (imagine if the upright was horizontal) there would be no effective
down force on the pivot points:-)
