Leave them on you risk the chance of the leafs fanning apart and rubbing on the tire your shock or the main leaf to get bent quick many things could happen and the added ability of even more axle wrap to occur just for more flex is pointless .....

Please also delete this thread. There is a veeerrrrryyyy long and informative "63" chevy swap FAQ" thread that you should read. If you still have questions at the end, please post in that thread to help keep all the information together
