Pic request 6.4 rear leafs and susp. question

Hey can someone take me a pic of their rear stock leafs on the truck please. Also I have traction blocks on the truck. A friend suggested I remove the very bottom thick leaf for a better ride, is this a legit suggestion.

the 6.0 is the same but My pic wouldn't help you ..
the bottom leaf actually makes the spring roll out on top of it more than it does act as a spring IMHO I see guys pull an intermediate leaf if they don't tow

you will loose the height of the spring u pull .. I pulled mine due to my traction bars interfering with it on my 8 inch springs and


you will likely need a new center pin if the old one is too rusted or threads trashed
but any u bolt /spring place will have them

Yea I see what your saying. The thing is I know the bottom spring is supposed to be fat and the other spring are supposed to have a little arch to them but its like my springs are just barely arched so at the ends of the bottom overload there is no gap between it and the next spring.
