Reversing your leaf spring eyes will provide a drop, but exactly how much of a drop? Here’s how to calculate ride height drop when you reverse your spring eyes.
Ride Height Difference From Reversing One Leaf Spring Eye
If you have one eye reversed, the drop will be one half of the diameter of the eye. In other words, if only a single one inch eye is reversed, the vehicle will drop one-half inch.
Ride Height Difference From Reversing Both Leaf Spring Eyes
If both eyes are reversed, the drop will be equal to the mean diameter of both eyes. So, if a spring has a two inch and a one inch eye, and they are both reversed, the vehicle will drop one and one-half inches
