If I find that they lift the rear too much, could I remove the overload leaf?
I don't do much hauling but do have a camper shell on my truck bed.
Would removing the overload leaf be a good or bad idea?
You can remove the overload, that ridiculously thick slab of steel
is about an inch thick meaning you could eliminate roughly an inch of lift,
Example: I've got 3" lift in back & last time i went to recycler with a load of steel I had 1340lbs (a little over the rated half tonI know) & still had positive ARC in springs..

It sits on bottom of leafpack which it all sits on axle so remove the OL remove 1" of lift
