Gar, If you get new (chinese steel) rear springs, you can wedge then
6-8" and it will still be too high.
Seriously, Gary is right about the 1/4" or so, I think I wedged mine
about 3/8", and I had the over sprung leafs.
Good point on the bump stops too. I did npt cut mine down and I often
felt them bottom out on the road.
