Need help with mixed spring packs.

Well before the zuk went into the garage for it's spoa I noticed that the front springs were starting to sag a little . The front end looked like it sat a little lower then the rear. The rear springs look good and I guess the overload spring helps them keep their arc. My buddy that's doing the lift has some 2" cj springs. He suggested mixing one or two cj leafs in with the sami springs to help the front end. I also wanted to add some to the rear to but I want it to sit level. Should we add 2 cj leafs to the front and say only 1 long cj leaf in the back? I know jaybird has mixed packs but he's running rears up front to. Any suggestions I need to know fast cause the perches get welded on tuesday and the locker was just done today. I don't have the money right now to buy the rear upfront kit or the mount to run cj springs in the rear so I'm stuck running the stock springs for now. Also will we have to drill a new hole in the leaf for it to sit even with the other springs? Thanks guys!

Re: Need help with mixed spring packs.

Trial and error.....

That's what I had to do until I was happy with my spring set-up.

Before I had the rears upfront I was running;
Front main, a rear leaf, 2 CJ leafs

All of the holes in the leafs will match up fine(no drilling needed).
