Only to a point BC, the more arch in the spring the harder it is to compress, I agree with you about the shocks controlling the ride, but only to a point. When Dodge increased the length of the springs on the 94 model trucks, it smoothed out the ride tremendously. When I pulled the blocks out of my Blazer and put the lift springs in, it was a much firmer ride with the same shocks. When they are made as a lift spring, they have to be a little stronger to hold the lift, otherwise the spring will start to flatten out over a period of time. that's one of the reasons you don't really want to use a re arched spring, eventually it will start going back to it's original state. Just my opinion, but i did research it when I did the V8 swap into my 81 toyota 4x4, with a 6'' suspension lift and 3'' body on 38.5s. Hope that helps.
