FC, this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it's not an adversitement, either -- follow the link below. It'll take you to a post by a guy who goes by 'Derby' who is into suspension and who's goal in life seems to be test riding every suspension design someone can come up with, and he manages some pretty decent analysis of them, too.
If you go to their search engine, and search for suspension designs you're curious about, use his name in the Search by User Name box, you'll be off to a good start.
There is a guy that does a bunch of path analysis on his site, but I'm drawing a big blank -- I'll post it later if I can find it. The designs he reviews stop at VPP, though, and I consider some of his statements to be suspect, but it's worth looking at.
