is it harsh bad to take out a couple leaf springs to gain more flex

nope

just don't take out too many.

It will lower the ride hieght and also make it ride softer, bottom out easier, and have less load capacity, but it won't do any harm other than they will wear out faster because they'll flex more now.


usually best to start by removing the shortest leaf (or overload if there is one)

Might get some mad axle wrap.




But hey, it's free, so WTF. Try it.
