    Ok I have a 6 inch superlift soft ride ft springs
    Ord flip kit with 2.5 rear springs. I was thinking about removing a leaf or two to make it a little more flexy the ft have 7 leaves plus the degree shim and the rear has 5 leaves plus the degree shim. which leaves sould I remove and how much does each leave take a way from the lift? Also can I flip the bottom spring on the rear for more flex kinda like Steve Fox did to his rear spring pack?
    Thanks fo any info
    Bo

    79flatbed is running 2.5 rears, Sky jacker Softrides, he removed the bottom leaf i belive, and now his springs are bent to hell and he has to replace them, Lifted springs dont have an Over load leaf, like stock springs have, Id leave the rear alone if i were you........ With my old 8 inch superlift springs i removed the bottom leaf on the front, to try and get it to sit more level, and well it didnt sit any more level, and i couldnt tell a difference in flex but thats with an 8 inch spring, With your six you will get a little bit more flex but not much, and it wont affect lift all that much........
