    I know this is probably not the thing to do but to bring the front end down a little more which spring leaf can I remove? This is on a TCI tube axle with the usual spring stack. There is about 6" clearance for the pan and the frame is notched for spring travel. I don't want to redo the frame or buy a mono leaf or a new axle. Thanks!!

    assuming it is a new front spring...you do know that it will settle about an inch after 500-1000 miles. Posies also has what they call low springs with less arch

    Trevor,
    So...maybe I should wait and see? Thanks for your help. I think if I were to go with new I would get the mono leaf that can be "spaced" top or bottom.
