he's right, but i found it hard to read.
put rear of truck in the air, jack stands under the frame.
put a jack under you differential and lift just a little, you want your wheels to be hanging, so the leaves arn't under any pressure.
put another set of jack stands under the axle. the jack and jack stands stop your axle from falling when you undo the "U" bolts that attach the leaves to the axle.
you shouod leave atleast, your longest and shortest leaves for safety.
you might find that going to just 2 leaves your rear will be lower then the front, you may have to put one back in.there is 1 bolt in the center of the leaf pack holding them together, you cant see it until you have your axle up and shock mount out of the way.
i hope this, with the other guys explanation helps.
i gotta get back to work,
good luck !
