    <font color="green"> Not neccessarily unsafe, but very very ghetto. What are you going for here, like 6" of lift from a stock spring? </font color>

    I doubt it would do anything...other than make your ride twice as rough. If the springs have the same arch, and you double them - you get the same amount of lift as 1 add-a-leaf (ok, maybe a tiny more because the arch is held up better), another leaf thickness of lift, and a whole lot of rough ride. Not a good plan in my opinion. ORD zero-rate and add-a-leaf wouldn't be too bad if you were desperate.

    I'm planing on the ORD Zero rates on both ends to relocate the axles. Sence they are consittered as Add a leafs, was thinking maybe stacking in the rear if I have any sag after I install the Springer Suspension. Just a thought, no plans too at this time. Just asking if it'd be safe or not. I have 6" lift springs up front, and plan to go to Springer Suspension to get ride of blocks in the rear. (4" lift blocks plus add a leaf.) was thinking might use the add a leaf from the current lift , plus the ORD zero rate on the Springer Suspension. I kinda like the rear sitting just alittle higher then the front.
