Good idea for homeade leveling or not?

Im just looking for a couple inches up front, the stock leaves are starting to invert. I don't like blocks so I wanted to do my own add a leaf, what about getting some x codes, then cutting up my stock springs and slapping those underneath the new leaves like a spring pack? Id probably have to drill a hole in a couple to use them in order to get at least 2.5-3 inches, then I figured id get a trac bar bracket then be set. Thoughts?

Ummm, NO. If they are inverted, they are bad and need to be replaced. Blocks never go up front. Just get the X-codes and be done. They will actually give you about a 2inch lift over stock springs. If you need anymore then get as hanger kit. You'll need shocks and adjustable trac bar, or trac bar bracket. Also gonna need a set of u-bolts.

Wish I could afford my new springs. I'd sell you my Xs with the icon mini pack and/or my hanger kit.
