    6\" rear springs and add-a-leafs

    Can I add an add-a-leaf to my rear 6" spring pack and gain some lift?
    I know they work on stockers but Im unsure if they will work on springs with more arch.

    yes, you will gain the thickness of the add a leaf is all, the nature of an add a leaf (aal) is to add more arch to the existing springs, so if you already have 6 inch rear springs which are already pretty arched, they would not put any more arch in them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    so really the answer is no
