I was unhappy with the ride on my CJ and also had more lift than I needed. Figuring the worst case was buying new springs and since that's what I was looking at anyway, I might get lucky. I removed the bottom leaf in the front pack and cut the bottom two leaves on the rear packs by 4" per side. It didn't really change the altitude of the vehicle, but it sure did change the ride! It's almost like a car (granted, an old car) it's so nice. If I lost a little weight capacity, so what, after all it's not like I actually plan to go wheeling with four full-size adults plus gear in the vehicle. It's just me 90% of the time, one other parson about 9%, and then once in a long time I but a couple kids or teens in the back seat. It's actually seemed to improve handling as well, not sure if that's real or if it's just I'm not fighting to retain command of the vehicle from getting smacked around so have time to drive the thing, I suppose it could be the suspension staying in contact with the ground better. Whatever it is, it's been a huge win. I'm still debating lowering the vehicle though for the improvements in cornering and side-hill work.
