    yes but not a lot haha,just don't want the rear higher than the front

    half an inch isn't gonna do it for me,maybe ill the out 1 helper leaf per side and crank the c/o's 1/2 an inch

    Another vote for coilovers. Much easier than removing a leaf as well.

    if youre not going to take our advice on cranking the COs and keep saying to remove the leaf, then remove the leaf. its your truck so do what you please, we're just here to try and make it easier on you. :cool:

    WTF dylan? when did you get a new truck?

    i'd crank the CO's before removing leafs... but then the front is going to be super high...

    i'd look into some lowering shackles. that might be your best bet
