You can go a couple, but taking more than half out will make for a very bad ride.

yeah, it should. Most times when removing leaves, every other one is removed, such as 1, 3, 5, 7, etc... Make sure you still have threads on the U-bolts, though.

Do you have any suggestions for Power Brake Booster Kits, or if there worth the money ?
