Anyone ever add an add-a-leaf to their front springs?

    After doing the Dana 60 install with the highsteer and crossover, my front end sits a little lower than the rear. It used to sit pretty level but I had to take out the Zero rate in the front in order for the high steer to not come in contact with the top of the springs. Anyways, I have an add-a-leaf set I bought a few years ago for my rears that I have laying around. I am thinking of putting them in the front leaf pack to regain some height. Anyone done this? Anyone have any ideas why this wouldn't work? BTW I currently have 4" Procomp springs in the front. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Longer shackle up front or remove a leaf from the rear. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Well I already moved my shackle for better angle so that wouldn't work since it would be HELLA long!!!! And removing one from the rear makes me kinda sketchy since it's the original spring pack. May make it TOO soft. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Have you thought about putting 5 or 6 inch springs in the front?
