[s][/s]I want to lower the rear end of my 46 Chevy pick up. I flipped the rear end and removed every other spring and left two upper springs and still need to lower it about three and one half inches. What should I do use lowering blocks or what? I had the springs de-arced and then re-arced because when I re-installed them they were almost flat. Not good.

Sounds like this tread needs to be in the HiPo section...maybe you need air bags to get it that low?

I would leave all the leaf springs in place and just get a 3" lowering block. keep it simple yet safe. look at my pictures to see how ti looks. that is what I did.
