Front Leafs?

Hey everyone, I currently have the Rancho 44044 leaf springs on my truck and I want to say that they gave me about 2" of lift or so...

I was wondering what other leaf springs that I could look for to actually lower the truck about 1-2".

Any suggestions?

Will that possibly make it ride any worse or any negative effects to the truck? Also, which leaf should I remove?

it would make the leaf pack softer if anything.

if you remove the leaf then it will be softer, you'll flex even more.
