    The only ones i can think of are the obvious ones. Advantages- better articulation smoother ride
    Disadvantages- more spring wrap and maybe more likely to break leaves and u joints but i doubt it
    I thought about doing it myself because my truck never hits the overload leaf even when towing a big trailer. I already removed my add a leaf and swapped my 4" block for a shackle flip. Its a lot smoother ride now but i could always use a little more.
