why is it better to have multiple thin leaves as apposed to 4-5 thicker ones? in the end you need "X" amount of arch and spring rate to ride at a given hight. you pre runner guys are saying that more arch is better but doesn't this eventuall equate to a stiffer ride? is the arch only for good droop? cause you can have all kinds of arch but if the springs are soft it will have a lower ride hight then a stiffer set. so getting back to the number of leaves- if you had a 4-5 leave pack with as much arch as say a 10 leaf pack and they both had the same overall spring rate, woud there be adiffernce in ride? come drop some leaf spring knowledge on me!
