    was just having some thought's,,,i have an 8" superlift, and on the bottom of the spring pack there is a little leaf only about a foot or so long...if i remove this leaf wouldn't it give me a softer ride an allow my rig to flex a little more or would it do more harm than good..say add way to much axle wrap or something??i do plan on driving my rig daily (maybe) and on outing's to wheel...any ideas about this are welcome,
    thanx,matt

    You can get more flex our of your truck by removing leafs, but dont pull one off the top or bottem. Pull a leaf out of the middle somewhere. Remember this will change your ride height a little as well. One leaf will go a long way when it comes to ride charectoristics.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    I think that little short leaf is the overload leaf, why don't you do what Steve did and just flip it upside down? It'll help with flex without altering your ride height.[​IMG]
    Man I think someone really liked your 'user' name, so now we have K5king and K5king2, I keep doing double takes trying to figure who is who![​IMG]
