Need to soften up my rear(LMAO!!)

Aight well i did some modifications to my front suspension after a few trips out and this is what i come up with...

i flipped my rear hangers and cut down my deaver coils to about an inch above stock, my spindle kept getting too close to the rides awesome and will be even better when i get my btf uppers on and fox's...anyways im trying to keep my COG low, and pretty soon ill be going with spindles...but the back is so fawking it time for some deaver rear springs, or is there anything i can do to soften up the rear any?? i was thinking of removing a leaf and flippinfg the shackles back stock...wat yall think??

btw i went on a good run yesterday and landed a good 3ft jump and the front landed pillowy smooth

You can try and remove a leaf spring to see if it helps soften up the ride, it doesn't cost you any money to do it, just some garage time. As for flipping your shackles back to stock I don't know of any reason why that would be any smoother than flipped?

As for the deavers, they have a reputation for being a really soft and spongy spring, just depends if you want to pony up the bill to try Deavers out.
