my 85 B2 seems a little mushy for me , I'd like to stiffen the rear suspension . I have a donor B2 which I need to pull a rear shackle from , so is there any reason why I couldn't add a leaf ? The B sits level at a good height.
also would there be any need to go to a heavier shock ? And if adding a spring which would be the most effective?

if you want stiffer suspension, add 1 leaf... you'll probably get a little height out of it to tho. I did an add a leaf to level out the rear of mine (for sagging springs) and i actually like the little stiffer rear suspension. i keep a trailer w/ 2 4wheelers behind it all of deer season and the add a leaf is awesome. i wanna get more flex up front, but the slightly stiffer rear is nice IMO.
