ok i saw the how-to on pullin a leaf, and the pics didnt show up for me at home or work? well anyhow, i want to lower the rear of the S15 even more than the 3" it has now with blocks, is it safer and easier to pull the leaf out while the leaf spring is off of the truck? i happen to have the stock ones from the 88 S10 i just replaced with 3" drop leafs. And what is this mono-leaf thing i have read somewhere? thanks every1!

Mono leafing is the poor man's lowering kit. I was monoleafed and rode bump stop till I got my notch in. I had to stick a leaf back in to keep fromdragging frame ( my leafs are getting worn out). a mono leaf will give you anywhere from 2.5-4 inches in drop depending on how worn they are.

even if you cut the bumpstops and brackets that are welded on? the axle will still hit w/o a notch?
