Lowered Leaf Spring Pics and Updates 67-72

Just picked up a 69 CST longbed with rear leafs. Looking at getting lowered springs, dropped shakles, or/and revering the spring eyes.

Let's see what you got. How about some pictures of your leaf spring drop, 3", 4", 5" and so on. If you could include any issues, tire size, and ride quality that would be great!

Here are the stats;
285/70/15 BFG's
about 18" from center of axle to fender lip
Looks like 2 of 3 springs removed, (PO said he took out the short lower spring and included it with the truck)
Suspension does not seem flex much when you jump in the bed but it is a very smooth ride. Not too smooth or too rough. Could be from the tall, soft tires.
