Less suspension lift

I have a 2001 f250 powerstroke crew cab 4x4. I have in the front 6.5 inch procomp springs, procomp pitman arm (fd500 i believe), fabtech adjustable trac bar, and drop trac bar bracket. It sits on 37x12.50x17 procomp extreme all terrains (which by the way have over 40k on them and dont looks like they will be wearing out any time soon). I am wanting less of a lift. I am asking if anyone knows a way to achieve less of a lift with out buying new springs. I was wondering if I could take a leaf out and if I can which leaf if anyone knows. Will the trac bar brackets need to be changed and will I need less of a pitman arm. I would like the lift to be 4 inches or less. I had 4 inches on my last truck and would like for this one to be around that level. I bought the truck and the springs were wore out so I bought the 6.5 inch springs 2 years ago and im ready for a change. If anyone has any advice or knowlege on this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Best bet would be to try and find somebody with a 4" lift that wants something bigger and just swap parts.

Yeah I was really hoping someone has already done this or knew a little more about it.

I just compared pictures of leaf springs and think I found the extra leaf that is not on the 4 inch spring. I was more curious as to if there was a difference in the drop trac bar bracket and pittman arm.
