    I want to remove 1 of my rear leaf springs to drop
    The rear level with the front .
    It has 5 springs , the bottom one is short then the rest ,,
    Longer ,
    Do I take out the short one or one of the long ones?

    You could change the shackle length or put in lowering blocks (if the spring is under the axle) to drop it. It would lower it but not effect the ride quality.
