    For those that have put the 56" springs up front, which leaves (how many) did you keep? Also what was the ride height?

    I'm thinking of dropping the two above the overload and fourth one up from the overload.

    keep the longest ones in the pack... if you want less lift than stock, start removing short leaves until you get the hieght you want. As far as how many leaves to keep in there, I have 5 in my 52s, beause thats how many will fit under my reverse high steer tie rod...

    I ended up putting all mine back in after taking some out. My springs are pretty well shot though.

    I was thinking of leaving five plus the overload. How much lift would this give? I know it will vary from spring pack to pack but just an idea would be great.
