Old Man EMU rear leaf question? HD vs Normal?

Couple years ago I bought an old man lift. Was told it is a 2.5 or 3". I can't remember now. I like it. But my rear passenger side leaf seems to be sagging now.
When I first bought I received the HD leaf packs instead of the normal, and thought it rode a little low which is how I ended up figuring out I had the wrong leaf packs, they shipped me the proper ones and let me keep the HD ones.

But I am thinking about getting the shackle relocation brackets. Would going back to the HD leaf packs (to fix the sag) with the shackle relocation get me an inch of lift or so? Maybe 2"?
I'd like to get an extra inch of lift from what I have now, on the drivers side anyways.
