Removing some leaves will most likely result in lowering the truck.
Why do you want to lower a cruiser? Whether or not it's spring under or over, removing leaves will soften the rate, and lower the vehicle.
We dont want to lower it, its just that it doesnt seem to flex too much. 9 leaves just seems like alot to me, and it causes the u bolts to get stuck on everything.
so we figured that if we remove some springs it would allow it to flex more and pull the u bolts up towards the axle more by either getting shorter ones or grinding them down.
