Removing a leaf for articulation?

.....I've heard of guys removing the lowest leaf to gain articulation, Is this a common thing,? Is it safe against breakage and such..Also if you can, then can you remove the thin little on on the bottom of the fronts?

If you're talking about the overload leaf, leave it! Removing it won't make any measureable difference in articulation. It will increase your springwrap and shorten the lifespan of your spring pack though.

Gotta agree with RRO on that, however I did turn my overload spring upside down so it
didn't hang down and catch on a rock and bend. Well it happened anyway, I caught it on
a rock and bent it. Since I had another pair of front springs laying around I used the two
bottom most springs out that spring pack to replace the overload spring with.
