I had originally installed these 5 leaf springs a few years back. The car sat way too high. I had to make a 3" lowering block just to get it down to normal ride height with a 255/60-15 tire. I had about 4 inches above the tire to the outer wheel lip. It looked like I had air shocks. They never settled in. I would check around a little more. I have the Hotchkis springs now and they are great.
I have NO personal experience with this because I simply threw away the D&R springs after I installed them and they made the car sit too high. I was later told to remove the bottom leaf of the D&R spring and the car will drop to the correct height. Since mine are long gone, I can't attest to this being true or not. A 4" drop from removing the small leaf seems like a lot, though.
