    2\" Add-a-Leaf

    How well do you think a 2" Add-a-Leaf would work? Would it still have the 0 spring rating? Thanks!

    The added spring rate is dependent on the length of the leaves, so if you keep it the same length as a block, you'll keep the same rate. However, you're going to have the same drawbacks as a 2" block as far as leverage and axlewrap, and I strongly advise against it in the front since you would add a lot of side to side lever arm in a very important place.
    Thanks
