it will. SIMPKIJD asked if it only works if you are sprung over. if you go SOA with those it should be like 6.5" of lift abouts but if you tried to stay spring under it would lower it 1.5"

it's not that they are assuming that you are already SOA. It's just designed to be used in a SOA.

but what about this?? because if you used 3 1/2-inch leaves on an soa rig it would be huge so how does this make sense?? >> RE 3 1/2-inch leaves + 1 1/2-inch shackles + 1/2-inch UBolt Eliminators = 5.5-inch net lift
