New guy, needs a little help. (Suspension)

Hey new to the world of a big ass diesel truck. I've built many of jeeps with custom triangulated suspension etc. I'm a younger guy so I'm not to hip to leaf springs and how they function. Like what leafs in the pack do what. I recently bought an 03 f250 with an 8" leaf spring lift. No blocks etc. we'll I'd like to lower it a little to maybe 6". Any way to archive this with removing a leaf or two? If so what ones do I remove? It's an RC lift.

And yes I've searched and I can't come up with anything decently related. Thanks guys

Street queen. If it does any towing it won't be very heavy. Maybe a 14' enclosed trailer once a year if that.

I would leave the overload spring then remove the next one on top of that one. this will make the truck softer and should drop it. then go from there working your way up the packs.

Ok cool. I heard something before about removing every other one or something. Just didn't have anything to back it up. When this weather breaks I'll give it a go. Thanks
