Ive got a lineup on a 12 inch lift kit, but theres a problem. I only want 6-8 inches. The guy selling it to me is a mechanic and tells me I can take leaves out, replace them with leaves with less arch and it will take the lift down a few inches. I dont doubt what hes saying at all, Im just curious if any of you guys have done it. I like the idea of rebuilding them with less springs and getting more flex, but I dont know how my shakle angle will be and all that jazz. Shortened: Can I mix and match leaves to make a 12 inch spring to a 6 or 8 inch spring easily?
