Removing Leafs from all pro.

I searched and couldn't find info on this..
I'd like to get the all pro leaf packs 3" because they seem to fit
what I'm looking for; they're in my price range, I don't tow, or carry
any weight in the bed, and I have heard several good reviews about them, but my only issue is I'm not looking for 3" of lift more like 1 inch, 2 at the most...

So my questions are:

1: Is this not to difficult to do at home? ( would it just require the same things needed to AAL? Jack, jack stands, c clamps, etc.)

2: Which leafs are alright to remove?

3: How many leafs would need to be taken out to adjust Ride Accordingly?

also if someone could point me to a write up on this (that's not an overload) that I overlooked would be appreciated as well.
Thanks

Ok I could do that but would the Ride be worse by adding a leaf compared to a new pack?

We don't recommend modifying our leaf packs. We also sell the 1.5" AALs, plus you can get the u-bolt flip kit from us as well.
