    It seems like the overload spring on my rear springpack is preventing the springs from upward flex. I'm not sure if it has been rearched (maybe one inch), but it isn't straight like many I've seen on other Blazers. Can anyone provide any info as to how much height I'll lose if I flip it? A local garage told me that the other leaves would be more likely to break if I do that....don't know why.

    Sounds like someone may have replaced your stock, somewhat flap, overload leaf with a "short" add-a-leaf. If this is the case you will lose 1-2 inches of lift.
