Default Rear springs

Will heavy duty 4 leaf springs lift the rear of my 2003 DS IQ. If so how much. I would like an inch or so. Loading on my trailer sometimes the brackets for brakes, go pedal catch a little.
Thanks

I was hoping they might not bend as much, maybe give me an inch or so, mine seem to be pretty straight.

Not true. Some of the heavy duty rears do in fact lift the rear a little bit.

I need some HD springs too...mine still have a bend in them until I set my butt down on the cart...left hand turns are fun for the passengers...two wheels baby!

Only if the spring has been moved to on top of the axle, in stock location, absolutely no lift, sorry

As springs wear out they do tend to sag a bit. New springs especially new springs with more leafs could make the cart sit higher.
A better plan of attack would be to make your ramp angle less steep. The parts you are talking about dragging are plastic block peddle mounts, not easy to come by once broken. Try dropping the ramp on top of a curb. Even 6 inches can help.

also replacing worn out bushings or springs to restore factory ride height is also not a lift, if springs are on top, you will gain the thickness of the additional leafs of the HD springs over the thickness of the stock spring
