    two big concepts with arch. #1 is more arch the longer the leafs will be to get to the specific eye to eye spec. #2 is the oposet of #1

    so knowing this you can go just a bit one way or the other. but to much will make them to far out of the eye to eye spec and wont work correctly. hope this helped.

    It would probably be easier to find someone that wants to trade springs with you.

    I know the length issue and the trading springs thing is not so easy for me because my springs are from the rear end of a 94 Dodge half ton pickup. Even aftermarket springs in the height I want are upwards of 400 bones

    The spring rate is almost too soft now. I am almost looking for something to get me by until I can afford coils up front. Would just be nice to get the heigth set before I start on the coil setup
