Crazy or onto something(63" Cheby's)

Ok, going 1/4 elip on the new buggae. I'm thinking of cutting up my 63" chevy packs, and redrilling and adding the cut leaves back into teh apck to form my 1/4 elip pack. My reasoning is a long flat spring should still flex better, even in 1/4 elip setups and I'm guesing the spring rate should be about the same with all of the leaves in half the stock total length??? Has anyone tried this?

Only problem that i see is that when you cut a spring in half, you also cut the spring rate in half. With a spring that soft i would be worried that they would just go negitave with the weight of the truck, but since i have never done a 1/4 i dont completely know.
