leaf springs

just wondering if taking the overload and 3 leafs out of the rear pack and 3 leafs out of the front would be ok. seems like the only problem would be axle wrap on the rear but im going to fab up some ladder bars to fix that. my goal is to lower it 2 inches and get a softer ride. thanks in advance

I'm guessing the overload L-bracket with the rubber bumpers?

im still a little confused my springs arent stock, but my truck is at home so when i get off work i will look and see if i can understand what you mean. im talking about taking the straight leaf(overload) and three leafs out just in case we are talking about different things or my terminology is wrong.
