Lowering 4\" Lift Springs?

I've found a pretty good deal on some Trailmaster 4" leaf springs for my CJ-7 and was wondering if I could lower them by removing a middle leaf. Would this be a good idea? I really only need 2-3 inches of lift and don't really want to spend the $$ on the other things needed for a 4" lift, ie. brake lines, drop pitman arm, xfer case lowering, shims, etc. I figured I could put 2-2.5 inches of lift and new shocks w/out having to change much else, maybe lower the brakeline mounting points. Any opinions on this?
thanks for any advice,


Re: Lowering 4\" Lift Springs?

Yes you can. But, the wisdom of doing it may depend on the brand. If they are Ranchos or Pro-Comps, then IMO go for it. But,
if they are a softride type spring, you may not want to go that route. Removing a leaf will soften the ride and lower the ride about
an inch or so.
