Wants 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

Those leafs are about 3/8ths of an inch thick, you don't have enough leafs to make that kind of drop. I run 6" Pro-Comps in the rear and 6.5" Pro-Comps up front minus two leafs and that spacer looking deal on the bottom (a friend had them for a smoking price). It's a good ride and I clear 315s nicely.
