Default How's this for de-arched rear leaf springs??

It's how a local guy lowered the rear of my truck, de-arching my leaf springs plus a lowering shackle. Cut springs in the front. I really need to get this done the right way....Sh***y ride quality.

Not only do I have to buy a flip kit now, but I also need to buy new leaf springs. Expensive lesson learned.

Cuz if I'm not mistaken the drop leafs are only a 3in drop. I'm looking for a 5in or 6in if I can with shocks. If its possible, then I would since I do need leafs.

I just put a mcguaghys 2/4.5. Which is a flip kit with lift shackle and it needs a notch. Bottoms out on all bumps sits about 2~3 inches from flat bump stops.
