I bought some custom made rear leaf springs and they are about 10 inch lift springs and they are good quality springs but they have about 7 or 8 actual leafs in the pack and are pretty heavy duty. So for better flex (ya like ill have any in the rearend anyways) I was thinking of cutting down the first 2 leaf , under my main leaf down so that the spring can twist easier and have a bit softer ride? Just an afterthought after building the rear suspension. Truck is a long box pickup..any thoughts? or do i need to remove actual leafs to get a noticeable difference. I still have to put the box on which probably weighs 500 pounds maybe... I dont know im just thinking about the weight ill have on it and the stiffness of the springs because you want them matched.
