I've never heard of leafs braking in a beam cause it didn't have the "small" ones in there....when I get around to going through the front of the SC and changing it to Breens bushings I'll remove the little guys....

I'm a BIG fan of removing the smaller leafs to gain a softer ride. That's what I do in all my 4" and narrower beams.

I've had both theories explained & justified in their own ways... I guess just do what you feel is best for your situation.sorry to be impartial.

ive actually heard of guys taking out the small leafs and cutting the last two inches or so off (just the part that slides into the arm).

this makes it it look like you have a full leaf stack and keeps the grub screw from splitting between the remaing leafs.

DID THAT MAKE ANY SENSE??
