how does one go about putting an add-a-leaf on? i want a little more clearance in the back but i dont want to have to take my leaf springs off and add a leaf to it, i was wondering if there is some sort of way to get around this or an easier way to do this
BTW its going on an 85RC

This is what was involved in doing my Skyjacker add a leaf.

Put rear frame on jack stands so springs are at full droop. Unbolt ubolts holding springs to axle and support axle with jacks. Clamp arched springs with c-clamps (not flat bottom leaf). Unbolt and remove centerbolt. Remove flat bottom leaf and add a leaf between the arched spring pack and then put flat bottom leaf back on and bolt back together using new longer centerbolt. Reassemble rear end and cut centerbolt with sawzall to appropiate length.
