I know that this has been discussed on at least one of these lists so I 
know that someone can help.  I have a set of 750 lb half leafs on the 
back of the Caddy to give it a little extra ground clearance, 
unfortunately this tends to make the truck lean to the front and I am 
hitting the GTI air dam in too many places, plus the truck looks like 
it is squatting in the front.  I have a set of low mileage A2 springs 
for the struts.  Can I use them and will they give me a bit of lift to 
the front of the truck?  TIA  Hayden
