For all the front triangle chunkiness, there isn't as much laterally locking the seatstay-driving portions from lateral movement, and since that front triangle is definitely not going anywhere, that load ends up being borne by the shock.  Just adds a lot of extra friction/stiction into the shaft elements because those seals are loaded on one side (and unloaded on the other) - they're designed to cope with it, but the actual performance of the shock basically has all the effort put into nice seals being undone by physics.
