Installing add a leafs and removing blocks

I have searched the forum all over and I cant find my exact answer. Right now I have 4 inch blocks in the rear and I am wanting to take them out and put the stock blocks back in with a short add a leaf. That should be the same amount of lift as the 4 inch blocks right? Also how do I install the add a leaf?

when you get the add a leafs it will come with instructions but basically:
you jack up the truck and support it by the frame, take the wheels off and let the axle hang. undo the bottom bolts for the shocks. undo the u-bolts and support the axle. hold the leafs together with some c-clamps and undo the center bolt. you put the add a leaf in between the the last leaf and the helper spring and reassemble with the longer center bolt provided in the kit.

if i missed anything guys please correct me.

You should save up and buy some Deavers!!!! AAL's are good too and you can install them the way Andrew said!
