    Not worth the effort, money or results. It wont ride smoother, the flatter leafs packs are, the softer the ride. Yours will feel more 'harsh' after re-arching. There is a good chance the springs will have been work hardend over their lifespan to the point re-arching will cause them to crack at the centre pin hole. Ive seen this first hand.

    With the amount of work involved its not worth it. Buy a fresh set.
